Winter driving: how to stay safe

When winter comes in Wyoming, it brings with it snow and ice, so drivers will want to make the appropriate preparations. One of the first steps is to get a mechanic to check the vehicle's components, including the battery, ignition, brakes and wiring. The mechanic could also check for worn or underinflated tires and ensure the right antifreeze level.

Improving visibility for drivers in bright sun

As the days get shorter in Wyoming after the change back to standard time, the sun is lower in the sky earlier in the day and can cause problems for drivers. Afternoon rush hour is one of the most dangerous times for driving, especially on days when the sun is bright. Though driving in bright sun is sometimes unavoidable, experts have tips for drivers to improve visibility and reduce the risk of crash.

Inexperienced teen drivers more likely to cause fatal accidents

When teens in Wyoming get their driver's licenses, their excitement to hit the open road could end in death. Research conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety concluded that teen drivers without adult supervision and transporting only other teens produced fatal accidents 51 percent more often than other drivers. When researchers filtered data to look for speeding or night-time crashes, the death rates were even higher.

Always-connected mobile workers get into more crashes

Wyoming employers will want to make sure that their drivers are qualified for the position and that they exhibit safe, responsible behavior behind the wheel. This is because a report from Motus, the workforce management company, shows a clear correlation between auto accidents and smartphone ownership among the always-connected mobile workforce.

Distracted driving can take lives, cause injuries

Many people in Wyoming are all too familiar with the dangers of distracted driving. When drivers take their eyes and concentration away from the road, the results can be devastating, such as car accidents that cause serious injuries and even fatalities. Across the country, thousands of people are killed each year in accidents linked to distracted driving. In 2015 alone, 391,000 people were injured and 3,477 more lost their lives as a result of crashes caused by distracted drivers.

The impact of drowsy driving on motor vehicle accidents

Most responsible drivers in Wyoming probably wouldn't get behind the wheel while intoxicated. However, this isn't the only type of impairment that can affect driving abilities. Being excessively sleepy can be just as dangerous, and it's not a rare occurrence. Half of all adult drivers in the United States confess that they regularly take to the road while feeling fatigued, according to the American Sleep Foundation. In addition, 20 percent of the motorists surveyed said that they had fallen asleep while driving within the past year. Such stats emphasis the impact of drowsiness on driving.
