Unfortunately, it does seem like Pennsylvania has a high number of car accidents each year, which leaves other drivers stranded on the highways for a long period of time while waiting for crash sites to be cleared. However, Pennsylvania officials have recognized how frustrating this can be and are trying to keep drivers more informed.
Many of us are aware of the dangers on the road from construction zones, poor weather conditions, and distracted/impaired drivers, but what about road debris? According to a study from AAA, over 200,000 crashes happened in a three year period due to debris on the road. These types of accidents have increased over 40% in the last 15 years. Most often, these accidents occur from tire blowouts and objects flying off/out of cars. These accidents can cause serious injury and, in extreme cases, death.
Well, Pennsylvanians, "construction season" is unofficially here. Need some tips as to how to keep your sanity and keep yourself/others safe on the road? Check out these tips below, courtesy of DrivingAmbitionInc.com.
