Recognizing the signs of PTSD after a car crash

People often associate post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with soldiers who've been in combat zones and people who have witnessed mass shootings like the ones we've seen all too often in recent years. However, victims of car crashes can also be left with PTSD -- sometimes long after their physical injuries have healed.

Cellphones aren't the only dangerous distractions for drivers

When most people hear the term "distracted driving," they think of people talking or texting on their cellphone. Certainly, cellphone use is a particularly dangerous distraction. Here in Kentucky, unless you're under 18 or driving a school bus, it's not illegal to talk on a handheld phone while driving. It is illegal for any driver to use it to text, however.

Modern safety features can make driving safer for older people

As the American population ages, so do the number of senior and elderly drivers on the road. As people get older, they may feel as young as ever in some ways. However, their mental and physical capabilities diminish. Their senses aren't as good as they once were. Reaction time increases. Diminished mobility may make it harder to switch from the accelerator to the brake as quickly as necessary.

Study: People are turning off warning systems in their cars

Many newer model vehicles are equipped with all sorts of technology that helps drivers avoid crashes. Some advanced systems are able to take control of the vehicle to stop it or get it back on track to avoid a crash. Others give drivers warnings of potentially dangerous situations, and they have to act on those warnings themselves.
