When behind the wheel of a vehicle, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of yourself and others around you. It is important to always drive within the posted speed limit. Also, slow down if you see traffic stalling ahead to avoid hitting other vehicles.
Serious car accident cases may call for a separate investigation.
