Auto accident attorney gives advice, resources to prevent car crashes and keep you safe
Our auto accident attorneys want you and your family to start 2011 with important safety tips that can actually save lives by preventing car crashes. The Internet is full of information, but not all of it is accurate or up to date. So we’ve created a list below of helpful government-sponsored websites that provide reliable data and support for Michigan drivers and their families.
o www.safercar.gov – A great resource for consumers who are shopping for a car or want important safety tips as owners. This site includes a brochure on how to buy a safer car, child and air bag safety, and understanding the new 5-Star Safety Ratings for 2011.
o www.distraction.gov – Sometimes our teenagers don’t understand the true impact distracted driving can have on them until they hear real stories from real people. This website includes statistics, FAQs and actual stories called “faces of distracted driving.”
o www.stopimpaireddriving.org – This site has numerous resources geared toward how families and communities can prevent impaired driving. Content includes family guides on keeping youth drug free, underage drinking prevention, zero tolerance laws and crash statistics. Alcohol intervention resources and safe community activities are also presented.
o www.nhtsa.gov/Driving+Safety – Everything you need to know about driver safety, including driver education, pedestrian and bicycle hazards and law enforcement. High visibility campaigns are also highlighted to educate the public and promote safety.
You can also check out our Local Resources Guide for Michigan Car Accidents, which provides auto accident information tailored to each major city in Michigan as well as Detroit local suburbs.
With that, the attorneys at Michigan Auto Law wish our readers and loved ones a very happy, safe and sound New Year.
