Late-night travels carry an increased risk of causing or being involved in a dangerous collision, and drivers should take extra precautions to ensure the safety of themselves, their passengers, and fellow motorists.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 20, 2020
An August 3 article on CBS Los Angeles reported on a wrong-way wreck on the 210 Freeway in La Crescenta that killed two motorists and critically injured another. The California Highway Patrol reported that the head-on collision occurred at approximately 2:44 A.M. and the cause of the crash is under investigation. Los Angeles-based personal injury attorney office Legal Defenders at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock says that late-night travels carry an increased risk of causing or being involved in a dangerous collision, and drivers should take extra precautions to ensure the safety of themselves, their passengers, and fellow motorists.
Legal Defenders says that drivers often mistakenly let their guard down when driving in the early morning hours due to the decreased amount of traffic. However, the firm notes that motorists should be doing the exact opposite: driving even more carefully than they normally would as the lack of visibility along with the presence of potentially exhausted drivers or motorists under the influence increases the chances of a devastating collision.
The Southern California law office says that in addition to paying close attention to the road and other motorists, drivers should be sure to monitor their own alertness and fatigue as well. For those traveling late at night, early in the morning, or those who simply haven’t gotten enough rest, Legal Defenders says the best thing to do is to pull over. Not only does this keep themselves and their passengers safe, but it also ensures that they are not the source of a terrible crash, and worse, the cause of one or more fatalities.
Legal Defenders says that there is no risk a motorist should take that is worth the consequences of an accident or fatality. While individuals might justify speeding or reckless driving to save time, they fail to take into consideration the financial and medical burden that could easily pile up from one miscalculated maneuver, not to mention the psychological toll the lasting impact of harming or even killing another person can cause.
