Society’s reliance on motor vehicles can be seen all around us. In Wisconsin and other states across the nation, the roads are filled with various types of vehicles. Motorists and occupants travel to various destinations for a wide variety of reasons; however, one thing will always remain. Drivers are required to follow the rules of the road and drive safely. Failure to comply with this or uphold this duty could easily be the cause of a serious or fatal automobile accident.
Although the dangers and risks on the roadways are apparent, motorists do not often think about the possibility of being involved in a motor vehicle crash. Unfortunately, negligent, distracted, drowsy and intoxicated drivers get behind the wheel. This places many lives in danger.
