Collisions Could Happen Any Minute
Traffic safety continues to be a life-and-death matter. As a matter of fact, a person dies in a vehicle accident every couple of hours.
Driving your children to school, going to the market, or driving to fill up on gas should not be a life-and-death matter. Even so, the likelihood of car accidents continues to rise.
Moreover, preventing traffic incidents like the California Avenue collision is a shared responsibility. It is vital to keep an eye out for those who are on the road with you. Your safety on the road is never guaranteed; however, knowledge is a powerful tool.
