Deaths of bicyclists on U.S. roads on the rise

While the colder weather beginning to move into Western Wisconsin and Eastern Minnesota is likely prompting some residents to put their bicycles into storage for winter, there are others who will continue to use them year round. Many of these individuals use them to commute to their jobs. According to a report recently issued by the Governors Highway Safety Association those individuals may have something to do with the increase in bicyclists dying on roads throughout the nation. Between the years of 2010 and 2012 that number increased 16 percent.

Tips for having a safe Halloween

There is no question that Halloween is a holiday enjoyed by people of all ages throughout the state of Wisconsin. Many children who are usually at home eating dinner or doing homework are thrilled by the prospect of being outside after dark, often running from house to house for free candy. While experiencing this thrill it is important that young people are also aware of their surroundings and follow traffic laws regarding when and where to cross streets. Doing so could result in fewer pedestrian accidents occurring.

FMCSA exemptions allow some partial blind truckers to drive

Everyone is likely aware that there are general guidelines that all drivers on the road must follow. Where commercial trucks are concerned, the rules are even stricter. These regulations, designed to keep both truck drivers as well as others on the roads safe, pertain not only to the way in which the truck must be handled but the condition the drivers can be in as well. There are certain things a driver must be able to do to be safe while driving a vehicle. Most would likely agree that being able to see well is one of those things and unsurprisingly there are federal visions requirements in place. These requirements make it so that drivers who do not see well cannot operate commercial motor vehicles

More about Wisconsin's 'Driver Sober' app

Federal program focuses on changes to make pedestrians safer

Anywhere motor vehicles operate there is a risk of a collision occurring. While a collision may involve another vehicle, pedestrians, in the form of walkers and bicyclists, also need to be on alert. When a car or truck hits a pedestrian the injuries can be devastating. Depending on the circumstances they might even lead to death.

Distracted driving may take many forms

Distracted driving has become a major problem on roads throughout the nation including those in the state of Wisconsin. The busier we all get the more multitasking people undertake. While this behavior may not be a big deal in some settings, when the person engaging in it is behind the wheel of a car, the outcome can be disastrous.
