Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents

Distracted driving is one of the main causes of crashes in Hawaii and across the United States. Drivers these days face an abundance of distractions like cellphones and other gadgets that can take focus off of the road. According to statistics, about 25 percent of all fatal car accidents are the result of distracted driving. Alarming statistics such as this explain why police forces around the country are cracking down on distracted drivers.

Car accidents: Not a question of if, but when

Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. The biggest question regarding accidents is not if they will happen, but when. Sure, precautions can be taken to reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring, but most accidents are completely unpredictable and thus unavoidable. When it comes to car accidents, the consequences can be life-altering and, in some cases, life-ending. Car accidents in Hawaii are stressful events, but the stress can substantially magnified when the at-fault drivers flees the scene.

Car accidents are events that no one wants to experience

It is becoming more and more dangerous to operate a motor vehicle these days in Hawaii. It's no secret that populations are increasing across this beautiful state, causing roadways to become frequently crowded. More vehicles sharing roads will only lead to more car accidents. Statistics say that most people will be involved in an accident at some point during their lives. Unfortunately, some of these accidents turn out to be serious or fatal.

Foreign objects on floors can lead to premises liability claims

Hawaii residents should be able to visit stores, restaurants and other public places without fearing for their safety. While shopping and perusing crowded stores and businesses, any foreign objects or slippery substances on the floor can cause shoppers to fall and be injured. Legally speaking, premises liability says that property and business owners are responsible for keeping a safe and hazard free environment. Those who are injured due to the negligence of property or business owners can pursue legal action.

Car accidents: Driver still at-large after fleeing crash scene

One of the few guarantees in life is that accidents are going to happen. These days, car accidents are happening more frequently as roadways across Hawaii become increasingly crowded. Any automobile accident is a stressful experience, but when the at-fault driver flees the scene, the experience can quickly turn traumatic.

Drivers should be attentive at all times to avoid car accidents

Driving requires focus and undivided attention at all times. As roadways across Hawaii become more and more crowded, losing focus behind the wheel for just a split second can result in a tragic accident. Unfortunately, car accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the state of Hawaii and across the country. A woman is now facing serious charges after a fatal crash that killed two people.

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.

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.

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.

Car accidents are by products of increasingly crowded roadways

As the economy continues to grow in Hawaii, more people have access to automobiles than ever before. Because of the strong economy, unemployment remains low, so many citizens of Hawaii use these automobiles to get to and from work. Combine increased local traffic with tourist traffic and it's easy to see why roads across the state are becoming crowded and dangerous. Unfortunately, car accidents are becoming a common occurrence in Hawaii.
