That is good advice, but there are many more aspects of driving that need to be considered, particularly modern driving, in which distractions are much greater for people behind the wheel. The personal injury you suffer in a car accident could reverberate across a lifetime and any personal injury attorney will attest that avoiding motor vehicle accidents…
