This winter was a long cold winter in New Jersey and most of the country. When May arrived, and with it warmer temperatures, people ventured out of their houses. No one expected to be the victim of a drunk driving accident. A gentleman from North Brunswick was walking recently when he was struck and killed by a vehicle driven by a 52-year-old woman.
It is spring in New Jersey. The school year is winding down and it's the season of field trips. Parents sign permission slips, say 'have a good time, behave' and send their kids off for another day at school. No one expects that their children will be involved in a horrific truck accident.
Pets can bring joy and love to a family home. However, they can also bring terror to an individual in the event of an unexpected attack. An animal bite can leave lasting impressions, physically, mentally and emotionally. Suffering from an injury caused by an animal can also cause an individual financial repercussion. One New Jersey man is still recovering physically and financially from a dog attack that disfigured his face last year.
Driving while impaired can lead to serious consequences, including possible jail time and/or fines. It can also result in an accident. Although New Jersey drivers are made aware of the dangers of drunk driving, many people continue to take the risk and get behind the wheel after drinking. Sadly, this negligent action can cause a serious drunk driving accident that could take the life of an innocent bystander.
It can be intimidating for a driver in a small car to be on the road with other vehicles that are much larger. The size difference raises concerns of driver visibility and awareness of the surrounding cars whose occupants may be more likely to suffer serious injury in the event of a crash. New Jersey drivers, especially truck drivers, must be mindful of smaller vehicles on the roadway to avoid a potential truck accident.
