Use these tips to help you avoid aggression while driving

Imagine you are cruising along, going the speed limit, when out of nowhere a car comes barreling into your lane and completely cuts you off. Your nerves are frazzled and your first instinct is to honk your horn and throw your hands in the air. However, reacting in this manner can only worsen an already high-tension situation. At Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, we have helped many people in New Jersey to deal with the consequences of having been involved in a car accident. 

Talk of changing speed limits to combat speeding in NJ

Driving faster than the speed limit is not a new problem for local authorities in New Jersey. In fact, speeding is one of the most prevalent problems on the road all over the United States. While lawmakers and the authorities have tried multiple methods to incentivize drivers and encourage them to follow posted speeds, they still have to plan ahead for creative ways to deal with the drivers who refuse to listen. While speeding may not seem like a serious issue, drivers who go faster than the recommended speed pose a significant threat to the safety of others. When they encounter road hazards, inclement weather or other factors, they may not have enough time to correct their course before they end up causing a violent collision. 

Understanding how driving drunk could affect you

Chances are you have heard about the dangers of drunk driving and how just a little exposure to alcohol has the ability to greatly impair your ability to make responsible decisions. However, not as much is said of the consequences that could be suffered as the result of your decision to drive under the influence. At Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, we have helped many victims of DUI accidents in New Jersey to make an impact statement and work toward getting the compensation they deserve. 

What behaviors are considered to be distracting while driving?

You are running late for an important appointment and decide to hurry and call your doctor's office to let them know. Once off of the phone, you try to hurry and finish your sandwich while driving to your appointment. At one point, your drink starts to tip. Your jerk your steering wheel a bit as you fumble your sandwich and try to catch your drink. This is distracted driving and it is surprisingly, more common in New Jersey than many people realize.
