There was a recent accident involving a self-driving car that may cause some to change their minds.

Don't make the accident of skipping crucial steps after a wreck

A normal morning for you involves making your way to work along the highway, your mind racing with the tasks on your plate for the day. However, this morning, you have a far different experience. A driver hits you seemingly out of nowhere, due to careless driving, unfortunately leaving you with serious injuries.

Sleep deprivation and driving create a dangerous mix

It seems as though most people suffer from sleep deprivation these days. Between work and family obligations, sleep tends to take a back seat to all of the other tasks that seem more important. You may be one of the many who relishes the weekends when you can catch up on your sleep.
