Speed limit lowered on dozens of Lexington streets

An inherent part of driving is the implicit trust that drivers place in one another. All drivers know that cars wait at red lights and go on green lights. Every driver expects cars to at least slow down at stop signs. This expectation is a little fuzzier when it comes to speed. Drivers expect cars around them to drive with the speed of traffic, whether that is faster or slower than the speed limit depends on the road. Sometimes it is slower, like on a highway during rush hour and sometimes it is faster, like on the same stretch of highway late at night.

You were injured in a drunk driving accident, now what?

You're driving home after a long shift. You follow the rules. You're happy at home, work is OK. Then out of nowhere a drunk driver T-bones your car. You wake up bathed in hauntingly white lights and to the unceasing chirps of machines. This can happen to anyone and, unfortunately, it happened to you. A drunk driving accident, unlike traditional car accidents, does not always afford you the opportunity to collect the driver's information. So the question becomes, what do you do?

It is important for motorcyclists understand insurance options

You always hear the classic nagging advice. You can drive any car you want, but you should never get on a motorcycle. However, you did because, why not? But ultimately, most people who choose to take the plunge and get a motorcycle find the experience of riding well worth any of the possible drawbacks.

Truck crash causes domino effect on Kentucky highway

Trucks are the biggest and most dangerous vehicles on the road. A fully loaded semi-truck is easily 25 times larger standard sedans. The size coupled with the speeds on interstates makes for a dangerous mixture of velocity and mass. This is reportedly what occurred on the I-71 Southbound.

What should I do after a car accident?

You are driving along the 71 watching for the 64 interchange. You're not exactly familiar with the area, so you are very observant for the signs. Ironically, you're so focused that you don't notice the car drifting into your lane. You don't see that it is some teenager texting and driving until you jerk awake in an eerily white room; it takes you a second to realize you're in the hospital. You watched ER and House, you know a hospital bed when you're lying in one.
