Drivers are getting crazier. How many times this week have you been behind someone who thinks the highway exclusively belongs to them? How many times have you been cut off, pulled out in front of, had a near miss or even had an incident of mild to moderate road rage? Rather than being an exception, it seems bad driving is now a rule. I had a driver pull out in front of me when I was so close that I had to slam on the brakes. The driver got mad at me! I can see why Sacramento auto injury attorney firms can be doing a good business. I have read about horrible accidents in the newspaper and saw them on the news to the degree I do not enjoy driving at all anymore.
I used to like taking a Sunday drive with my parents when I was a kid. We did not wear seat belts, and the cars did not have air bags. However, people were a little less obnoxious when it comes to driving behaviors. I think there might have been as many drunks on the road, comparatively, though. It seems like I see a whole bunch of DUI arrests when they do traffic safety nights. You would think it would be impossible to get someone at one of those stops seeing that you can find out where they are going to be held.
I think that people who are injured in automobile accidents should get the maximum amount from an insurance company. I think if they are injured because of bad road construction signage, unsafe construction zones or simply bad areas where the road design is a serious issue should have recourse to really pursue the road construction companies as well as the government that maintains the road too.
