Cars are not the only vehicles on the road. Motorcycles, bicyclists, joggers, farm equipment and other types of vehicles are also on our nation's roadways. Drivers should remain alert and use caution when approaching these types of vehicles, because unlike a car, the drivers of these vehicles are mostly unprotected. Distracted driving or drunk driving around these vehicles can result in personal injury, or even death.
People should be aware that the determination of cause in a criminal suit involving a car accident can also have an effect on any civil action that follows.
