Should I Take Pictures and Keep a Journal?

Should I Take Pictures and Keep a Journal?

Yes. Take as many pictures of your damaged vehicle as possible. The best pictures will document the scene of the accident right after it happened. Make sure to take pictures of all damage to your vehicle. Additionally, take pictures of your injures, bruises, and your treatment. Taking and keeping proper pictures is essential to properly remembering and presenting how the accident occurred and all the damage the accident caused.

If you have the ability, also take and keep video. If pictures are worth 1,000 words, then video is worth 1,000 pictures.

Additionally, keep a journal or at least notations on your daily planner about your medical treatment. Write down your doctors appointments and what the doctors said. Write down your experience with your treatment. Write down your pain level and write down anything you could not do because of your injuries.

Making and keeping proper documentation will be invaluable to presenting your case.

Distracted Driving Kills

Distracted Driving Kills.

Drivers who use cell phones while behind the wheel are a menace to South Carolina and are causing blood and carnage on our public streets and highways. Don’t think it’s that big of a deal? A recent survey found that 25% of car cashes involve cell phone use. Additionally, a study out of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute concludes that texting while driving doubles a drivers’ reaction time. The increased reaction time can lengthen a car’s stopping distance by half a football field at 60 miles per hour. Distracted driving may contribute up to 20 percent of all fatal crashes and cell phones are the primary distraction. Distracted driving causes over 330,000 injuries every year.

Mandated Backup Cameras

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued regulations this week requiring all new vehicles to have backup cameras by 2018. The NHTSA says this will help prevent some of the 210 deaths and 15,000 injures per year related to backup incidents.

Do you have a backup camera? What are your thoughts on the requirement? If you don’t have one on your car, are you considering an aftermarket camera for safety reasons?

Speed Kills! Slow Down in the Rain.

Traffic Tip Tuesday. Speed Kills! Slow Down in the Rain.

For most of us, this Tuesday is a gloomy, cold, and rainy day. Please know that rainy, wet road conditions factor into a safe top driving speed. The posted speed limit does not provide an absolute right to travel that fast. Driving too fast for conditions is the largest traffic violation leading to injuries in South Carolina.
