Everyone slips or trips on occasion. Fortunately, in most scenarios, the greatest damage incurred is embarrassment.
According to The Times-Picayune, a 16-year-old motorist died after sustaining serious injuries in a collision on his way to school. The Madisonville teen was allegedly on his way to Mandeville High School when the crash occurred.
Maintaining a motor vehicle is the perfect real-world application of the phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Spending a few hundred dollars on your car every year may seem excessive—especially if it doesn’t necessarily add any major upgrades to the vehicle—but it could be far better than the alternative, which is accumulating hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages in a catastrophic collision.
When you sustain serious injuries, it can essentially halt your entire life. Your health suddenly becomes the only priority, and nothing else matters until you recover.
According to U.S. News & World Report, authorities are searching for the motorist who struck a bicyclist on U.S. 90 and continued driving, leaving the victim to die from injuries he sustained.

Have you ever read something line by line only to realize a few minutes later that you did not comprehend any of it? If so, you are not alone. Nearly everyone experiences this kind of dazed mental state on occasion.
If you have ever taken any kind of road trip, you can probably attest to the fact that driving for an extended period of time is tiresome. Even though sitting behind the wheel is not necessarily physically strenuous, remaining alert in traffic is mentally taxing. The monotony of the road ahead can also contribute to boredom and fatigue.
Maintaining a valid driver’s license is the epitome of independence for many senior citizens. For this reason, telling an aging loved one to stop driving can be challenging.
According to FOX News, Honda has confirmed that the motorist who died in a collision in Baton Rouge on July 10 was the victim of a defective airbag.
