CVSA seeks to cut down on trucking crashes

Many New Yorkers may fear taking to the roads alongside large trucks. This is understandable considering the potentially devastating results of a truck collision with a passenger vehicle. However, one initiative by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance is working to promote safer driving practices among both passenger vehicle drivers and commercial truck drivers. Called Operation Safe Driver Week, the initiative begins on July 15 and aims to cut down on the number of fatalities, injuries and overall motor vehicle crashes caused by unsafe driving.

Woman has stomach bloat because of surgical error

A sponge being left inside of a patient is considered to be a "never event." In other words, it is something that a New York patient or anyone else should never have to experience. However, this is exactly what happened to one woman in Japan after she underwent two cesarean sections. The two sponges left behind were believed to be the cause of stomach bloat that she had experienced for several years.

Why drowsy driving is a major risk in ridesharing

Drivers in New York are probably aware of how dangerous it is to be fatigued behind the wheel. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety estimates that every year in the U.S., 328,000 crashes occur because of fatigued driving with 109,000 of those resulting in injuries and 6,400 in a fatality. Among those most susceptible to fatigued driving are rideshare drivers.

The ins and outs of joint legal custody

Divorced parents in New York who have joint legal custody may not share physical custody as well. It is not uncommon for one parent to have visitation rights but also share legal custody with the custodial parent. Legal custody gives parents the right to make decisions for a child about issues such as religion, medical care and education.

When spotting a suspected drunk driver

Roughly one-third of all traffic deaths in the U.S. are attributed to drunk drivers who continue to remain a consistent danger on all roads. During the 10-year period from 2003 to 2012 in New York, 3,752 people were killed in vehicle crashes that involved drunk drivers. That's an average of 375 per year.
