Pedestrian accidents: Traveling by foot can be dangerous

Walking is a popular and trendy way to get around in the state of Hawaii. More and more people are choosing to walk in order to save money and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The climate is wonderful here year-round, which makes traveling by foot very enjoyable. However, there are also more vehicles on the road than ever before, and more foot traffic along crowded streets is equating to an increase in pedestrian accidents.

Car accidents: Fatal crashes can happen at any time

Those who live in Hawaii or have recently visited here know that roads are becoming crowded and more dangerous. Car accidents are commonplace on the largest and most populated island of Hawaii. However, crashes are also happening more frequently on the other islands, as more people across the state gain access to automobiles. Just recently on the island of Maui, three fatal accidents were reported in the span of a week.

Premises liability: Property owners must eliminate hazards

Any establishment that offers public access must abide by certain guidelines and laws in order to keep a safe environment for visitors. Foreign objects or substances that are left on floors can suddenly become very dangerous hazards capable of inflicting harm on unsuspecting patrons and others lawfully on the property. Premises liability laws say that owners and operators of public establishments must make every reasonable effort to eliminate hazards and regularly maintain their property. Despite these laws, thousands of people in Hawaii and across the United States are injured every year in stores, restaurants and other public places.

Overcrowded roadways in Hawaii a recipe for car accidents

Crashes are happening more and more across the state of Hawaii. A number of factors could be contributing to the rise in motor vehicle crashes. One of the culprits is definitely overcrowded roadways. Roads across the state have become crowded and congested as more people in Hawaii have access to vehicles than ever before and many of these new drivers have minimal driving experience. Crowded roadways combined with inexperienced or distracted drivers is a recipe for serious car accidents.

Always remain alert and focused to prevent pedestrian accidents

In the city of Honolulu, pedestrians are literally everywhere. Those who live and work in the city often choose walking over driving as their main source of transportation. Not only is walking more practical and economical, it is a great way to stay in shape while enjoying the wonderful climate in Hawaii. However, increased foot traffic along crowded city streets could mean more pedestrian accidents.

Car accidents: Hawaii police are cracking down on drunk drivers

These days, its common knowledge that driving while under the influence of alcohol is one of the most dangerous and irresponsible things a person can do. Alcohol impairs basic motor skills and greatly reduces reaction time, making driving incredibly difficult. Those who get behind the wheel while intoxicated endanger the lives of all those around them, and car accidents become almost inevitable. There are strict laws against drunk driving in the state of Hawaii. Despite these laws, intoxicated driving remains one of the main causes of accidents in the state.
