Switch to standard time increases car-pedestrian accident risk

Fall can be a dangerous time for pedestrians, as dusk becomes part of rush hour. The end of daylight savings time moves sundown right into the commute, meaning that drivers are forced to adjust to less ambient light and more light from headlights and streetlights. The difference in light changes the appearance of things. It changes the shadows. Small moving objects like pedestrians seem to disappear.

Cash windfall may be lucky for drivers - until reality hits

Imagine driving along the highway and suddenly noticing little bits of green sailing through the air. Upon closer inspection, you realize that those bits of green are wads of cash, sailing out of an armored truck and into the air for drivers to grab.

Maryland man sentenced for fatal DUI crash with moped

If your vehicle has ever stalled on a highway or busy street, you may remember feeling nervous about being exposed to traffic as you tried to fix the problem or call for help.

Headphone-wearing pedestrians pose road risk, study says

There's no question that pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable people on the road. Without so much as a helmet to protect them from cars skidding around in bad weather or distracted drivers, they can be injured in a car accident quickly and seriously if they don't see a vehicle approaching. Why wouldn't they? Perhaps because many of them are distracted themselves.

This time, police say, the accident was an early morning hit-and-run crash that injured two students and led to the arrest of a suspect who was trying to flee the scene.

Pedestrian accidents all too common in Maryland

Recently, a Las Vegas tourist noted the exceptional lack of jaywalking within that city. He found it ironic that a city known for casual lawlessness and an obvious lack of sobriety maintained such a respectful relationship between pedestrians and drivers. Unfortunately, this is not the case in Maryland, a state known for pedestrian accidents despite its relatively charming and friendly image.
