Think again before walking home from the bar

Thumbnail image for walking while drunk.jpgPicture this: it's 3:00 a.m., and the bar you have been at all night has just closed. You know you are too drunk to drive home, but a taxi or an Uber will be too expensive. You decide that walking is a better alternative, so you head down the sidewalk and begin on your way.

Remember to drive safely!

With so many additional people on or close to our roadways, it is important to remember that distracted driving can result in not only damage to your vehicle, but injury or death to those around you.

Drug use down among teens, with one notable exception

Even in the midst of an opioid epidemic, the use of alcohol, heroin and cocaine is down among teenagers across the U.S. The one exception is marijuana, which has become less stigmatized in recent years and is, of course, now legal in a number of states.

Why does UM/UIM matter?

auto insurance.jpgFew people like to think about insurance. Fewer still like to spend money they do not need to spend on insurance. Getting the lowest possible rate for auto insurance might make sense for your situation. This leads many people to forego UM/UIM coverage. Currently in Pennsylvania, UM/UIM insurance is optional. It is mandatory in New Jersey. In both states, it is against the law to drive without a minimum amount of auto insurance.

Protect Yourself from Underinsured and Uninsured Motorists

Accidents can happen at any time, and often those accidents are not your fault. When you suffer serious injuries in an automobile accident, you have the option of suing the driver responsible for those injuries.

This program could end drunk driving... but will it?

Using ear buds while driving may be legal in NJ, but is it wise?

driving with earbuds.jpgIf you were to look into the windows of all of the cars on a busy intersection, chances are you would come across at least a few drivers with ear buds on. Some may be using a bluetooth device. Others may be listening to music on their phones. If you're wondering whether this is legal, or safe, your concern is legitimate. Using ear buds is an easy way to become distracted while driving.

Rural Auto Accidents More Likely to Be Fatal

shutterstock_144026332.jpgWhen you think of dangers on the road, you probably picture congested city streets and rush hour traffic. However, rural auto accidents are more likely to be fatal than city crashes. High speeds, alcohol, reduced access to medical care, and other factors lead to the alarming number of rural fatalities. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a rural accident, the attorneys of Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma can help you obtain financial compensation. This money can help with property damage, medical bills, lost wages, and many other expenses following an accident. To learn more about auto accidents and rural roads, contact our Pennsylvania and New Jersey offices.
