In 2015, Tesla released their first self-driving car model and this has caused people an access to autonomous vehicles and most of them are americans which producer of Tesla CEO Elon Musk is an american leading to an early release of these models to be in U.S. A national study conducted by
Americans are largely in favor of having access to more autonomous vehicles. A national study by American Automobile Association (AAA) found out that 60% of the public wanted autonomous driving feature on their next vehicles and it is slowly becoming reality as more than 1,400 self-driving cars are on the streets of U.S. in the recent date but even in these numbers 54% of the survey respondents said that they feel less secured about the thought of self-driving cars on the road even with the recent updates on its safety features and the system itself.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), almost 50% of interesction accidents occur because a driver either unintentionally disobeys a traffic signal, misunderstoods other driver's signal, and/or deliberately try to beat the red light as they are in a rush. An additional 18% of accidents occur because drivers deliberately drive over yellow light on intersections and 36% of intersection accidents were caused by a driver who drive over a red light.
Among all car accidents, one of the most incovenient and has the most damage dealt are highway crashes and intersection accidents which involves multiple vehicles. Common causes of intersection car crashes are disobeying traffic signal and miscommunication of vehicles' signals which result to failure of yielding the right of way. Running over a red light due to rush and hoping to get through the intersection on a yellow light and unintentional misunderstanding traffic signals are also root of causing a intersection car crash.
When involved in a car accident, there are countless possibilities on how victims could sustain their injuries. Range of injuries include cuts, broken bones, bruises, burns, possibility of amputation, and even head and neck injuries which could lead to either brain damage or spinal cord issues.
In this blog, we are going to talk about the array of possiblities what forms of brain damage a victim in a car accident could sustain as in the field of medicine, brain injuries are deemed to have the highest fatality recorded in terms of damage sustained in a car accident, one of the most life-changing injury that one could have from one event and we are about to shed light on why drivers should take premeasures when driving due to taking these adversities.
One cause of the many causes of car accidents are external factors which could affect the severity and outcome of a car accident, they are identified as either mechanical errors or the uncontrollable environmental risks or factors.
In general, environmental factors in car accidents refer to the entities contributing causes to crashes which are not charged or out of human control. Despite that, there are few types of environmental factors that are responsible for or partly makes up the whole car accident. Though, these specific crashes caused by these factors are preventable through prevention and countermeasures some tend to be negligent about it.
A thing about spinal cord injuries, it is not automatically identified as a absolute one spinal cord injury as it has two primary types, namely complete and incomplete spinal cord injuries. An incomplete spinal cord injury is describe as having some movement or sensation in the body beyond injury which means the spinal cord is partially severed or damaged allowing the patient to regain few functions and paralysis is temporary but leaving a limb or few parts of the body immobile.
In road, there are various risks that a driver and vehicle occupants will be exposed to and these risks are caused by multiple factors. Usually these factors are generally identified as mechanical errors, environmental factors, and lastly, human errors. All of these factors are deal wide range of damage which commonly results in sustenance of injuries and even death. Human errors have high fatality as the driver itself is the cause of the accident, some examples are drunk driving, drugged driving, aggressive driving, and tail gating.
A car seat or child safety seat is a seat specifically used and designed for child use and used to protect children from the pose of risk of any incoming car accidents and keeping them away from being involved in fatal accident and mitigate sustenance of injuries.
As a parent or guardian, child's safety and health is a major priority which is more heightened when parents travel with their child as common knowledge, traveling along road with a vehicle, despite offers high convenience, it entails exposure to few risks that may render people along road to have chances to sustain significant injuries and even death.
