With the current recession, states trying to cut budgets are banning the use of traffic cameras that are used to identify cars disobeying a speed limit or law. If states outlaw technology that is effectively aimed at limiting the number of car accidents, then this could possibly lead to more automobile accidents that could result in wrongful death.
If traffic cameras that are used to identify drivers who break the law are banned, how will this affect you and your family? More car accidents will happen, that cause personal injury, as the police force is already overworked and not always there to catch every driver who breaks the law.
As car accident lawyers, we know that speeding and red-light-running are top causes of auto accidents, so we urge all drivers to obey safe driving practices when behind the wheel. This means driving at the designated speed limit and obeying all stop signs and traffic lights.
Alaska, Arkansas, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Nevada, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin are among the 13 states to have already implemented a ban on traffic cameras. More states are soon to follow their lead and undoubtedly nationwide car accident statistics will rise as a result.
Speeding and not obeying traffic laws can cause car accidents because all drivers may not be paying attention to the road. Car accidents can cause personal injury like whiplash or spinal cord injury leading to paralysis or even wrongful death.
Is getting to your destination, at the expense of hurting a loved one or you, really that important? Isn’t it worth it to travel at the speed limit when you will be more likely to get places safely? Our auto accident attorneys urge you to leave early for car trips, but if you are running late, know that driving a few miles faster and tailgating could lead to a car accident.
