Unbeknownst to you (and likely many others in New Orleans) is that every time you take to the road, you may be surrounded by drivers engaged in a potentially dangerous activity. This activity may be just as likely to lead to a car accident as drunk driving or using a cellphone while behind the wheel, as countless people engage in it without realizing the risks they are creating. We are talking about eating while driving, and you (just as many of those that our team here at Bruno & Bruno has worked with in past have been) may be surprised at just how likely it is to have played a factor in your accident.
Many parents may feel a mix of anxiety and excitement when their teens get old enough to learn how to drive. While getting a driver's license is an exciting sign of growing independence, it may also introduce new risks into a teen's life. While car accidents involving teens are an unfortunate occurrence on Louisiana roads, there are some important things parents may do to help their teen drivers stay safe behind the wheel.
When you are driving in Louisiana, you may encounter pedestrians often, especially when you are in cities or residential areas. Most busy intersections in cities have traffic signals and signs that indicate when you need to stop your vehicle to yield to a pedestrian. However, it is not always as clear in residential neighborhoods or on rural roads. You may have a hard time determining who has the right-of-way when there are no active traffic signals.
Figuring out how to keep your children safe in the car may seem overwhelming, especially with all the different types of car seats. If you want to know when you should switch your child from a rear-facing car seat to a front-facing seat, you may have to consult both the manufacturer's instructions and local regulations. In Louisiana, there is a recent law that includes new rules for when children may use different types of car seats.
Riding a bike is a good way to get around Louisiana, and there are more cyclists on the road when there is warmer weather. Because bikes are harder to see, there is an increased chance of collisions with other vehicles. To keep things safe, drivers need to understand how to maneuver around bikes, and cyclists also need to take the right precautions to prevent accidents from occurring.
If you are a parent in Louisiana, you are probably aware of how distracting it can be to drive with your kids in the car. Whether you have a young infant or unruly teenagers, you are at a higher risk of getting into an accident than drivers who are not driving with young ones. The next time you get in the car, there are certain things you can do to improve safety of you and others on the road.

When it comes to car accidents, the emotional aspects of a crash should not be overlooked. People often focus on the physical injuries that people sustain in these wrecks, or the financial consequences they face following a collision. However, the emotional toll can be devastating, and strong emotions can even cause motor vehicle crashes in the first place. In this post, we will look into some issues related to panic attacks and traffic accidents.
There is a myriad of factors to consider when it comes to motor vehicle collisions and new parents. For example, some people may be more likely to find themselves in a crash after the recent birth of their child, whether they are tired and stressed out or divert their attention to monitor their infant while driving. Parents also need to familiarize themselves with safety guidelines when it comes to car seat use and driving with an infant. On the other hand, parents may also be struck by a reckless driver, which can be especially devastating when a very young child is in the vehicle.
Sharing the road with large commercial trucks is an inevitable part of life in Louisiana, but studies show that many of the people driving those trucks are engaging in highly dangerous behaviors before or while behind the wheel. While anyone who drinks or abuses drugs before driving endangers everyone who crosses his or her path, commercial truck drivers who do so pose a particularly serious threat to the public due to the sheer size and weight of their vehicles.
