Drowsy driving, and how to avoid it

Most drivers in Montana are no stranger to drowsiness behind the wheel, but that hardly means that they should do nothing about it. Unfortunately, many continue to drive drowsy even when they know it's wrong. As a result, up to 6,000 fatal crashes occur every year that are related to drowsy driving. The following are a few tips for avoiding drowsiness.

Technologies aim to reduce risk of distracted driving

People in Montana and across the country face serious risks because of distracted driving. Every day, around nine people lose their lives and 100 more are injured due to distractions behind the wheel. Cellphones and other electronic devices are the best-known cause of distracted driving collisions, but there are a wide range of items that can take a driver's eyes and mind away from the road ahead. Other distractions can divert attention from the road, including "rubbernecking" at other collisions on the road and attending to the built-in entertainment and touchscreen systems inside newer vehicles.

Keeping kids safe in car accidents

Anytime a car accident results in a person's death, it is a terrible tragedy. However, when the victim is a child, it can be especially painful. The thought that a young person who should have had a whole life in front of him or her no longer does can be too much for some families to come to terms with.

Winter driving 101: staying safe on icy, snowy roads

Montana residents will want to avoid going out as much as possible when the roads are icy, wet or snowy. For those times that they cannot avoid being out on the winter roads, though, the following tips should help in lowering the risk for collisions. The first tip is to simply slow down. Even following the speed limit can be too fast in snowy conditions; the tires will lose traction and the car will be more likely to lose control.

AAA: drivers should beware of drowsiness after end of DST

The end of daylight saving time may give everyone an extra hour to sleep, but it still disrupts the body's internal clock. This means that one may need to contend with a little drowsiness the day of the change and even the day after. Drivers in Montana should keep in mind what sort of effect drowsiness can have on their ability to concentrate on the road.
