How common are fatal drunk driving accidents?

According to a fact sheet that was published on the State of New Jersey's website, more than 10,300 people lost their lives in drunk driving accidents across the country in 2012. Furthermore, these deaths represented 31 percent of the total number of lives that were lost in motor vehicle traffic fatalities over the course of the year. To make matters worse, this doesn't account for the drunk driving wrecks which did not result in fatalities. In Monmouth and throughout New Jersey, victims of non-fatal crashes may experience numerous hardships if they are able to survive an accident, from serious injuries to medical bills and lost wages.

There are a number of reasons why motorcyclists should understand the importance of wearing a helmet. In addition to safety concerns, if you live in a state where helmets are mandatory, failure to comply with a helmet law could impact your case if you are involved in a motorcycle accident. For motorcyclists in Monmouth and throughout New Jersey, wearing a helmet is required by law.

Motorcyclist hurt in New Jersey accident

With winter approaching, many motorcyclists will wait until next year to get back on their bike. After all, with icy roads and inclement weather, winter can be a particularly dangerous time to ride a motorcycle in Monmouth, New Jersey. However, some motorcyclists are still taking to the road and it is important for drivers to be aware of their presence at all times. When distracted drivers don't see a motorcyclist or fail to obey traffic laws, they may be responsible for causing motorcycle accidents, which sometimes result in serious injuries and lost lives.
