A traffic collision, or car accident, is when a vehicle on a roadway collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, or obstacle on the same roadway.  Car accidents are one of the leading causes of serious injuries and deaths in the United States.  Car accidents become even more of a risk in the winter seasons.  Reliable transportation is extremely important in the winter.  There are specific cars that are safer and more dependable when driving in winter conditions.  The top 10 cars for driving in winter time are:

  1. Audi A4 3.2 Quattro
  2. Subaru Outback
  3. Volvo XC70
  4. BMW Sports Wagon
  5. Saab Turbo X
  6. Subaru WRX
  7. Ford Flex
  8. Mercedes Benz E5504
  9. Mini Cooper S
  10. Suzuki SX4 Crossover

It is extremely important to keep your car in top operating condition year round.  However, it is even more crucial to keep your car in its best condition during winter months.  Winter weather can cause many car related problems that can be difficult to deal with.  Along with keeping your car in its best condition, having a car that is efficient at driving in bad weather conditions is key.  If you have experienced a car accident in winter, or in any other time of the year, contact a Las Vegas car accident lawyer to help you with the legal process.

Recent studies done by the Highway Loss Data Institute show that California’s sate law banning the use of hand held mobile-phones while driving has not reduced the number of accidents.  The number of car collision claims in California were not much different then California’s surrounding states that have not implemented a traffic law prohibiting the use of mobile-phones while operating a vehicle.

The law that outlaws the use of cellphones while driving in California has been in affect for almost 2 years now.  The number of vehicle accidents has not declined since this law was passed, however the number of traffic tickets issued has greatly increased.  Since this law went into effect, the California Highway Patrol has issued over 230,000 tickets to violators of the new law.  Some experts argue that the law was passed with the hope of an increase in the number of ticket citations, instead of a decrease in accidents.
