Truck driver awaits sentencing following conviction in 2015 crash

Truck drivers play a pivotal role in the economy by transporting goods between locations so consumers can have access to essentials such as food, gas and clothing. Often, truck drivers are required to drive for extended periods of time in order to meet deadlines and stay on schedule. While many trucking companies in New York prioritize safety, and encourage their drivers to operate their vehicles responsibly, they cannot completely control the behavior of every driver. 

The problems presented by heuristics

Brooklyn residents go to area hospitals and healthcare clinics expected to get answers to the questions they have about the injuries and illnesses afflicting them. Unfortunately, statistics show that doctors are not always able to provide them. According to research data shared by CBS News, 12 million people (roughly 1 out of 20 adult patients) are misdiagnosed by American healthcare providers each year. This prompts the question of what may be causing this high rate of misdiagnoses? 

Staying safe while behind the wheel

With thousands of cars traveling New York roads every day, it is imperative that people understand how to react in situations where their safety is compromised by the unanticipated actions of others, environmental hazards and even weather conditions. When drivers are educated about what steps to take to stay safe on the road, they can better protect themselves, their passengers and other motorists on the road. 

Many kinds of car accidents up across the country

The United States Department of Transportation released its yearly report on traffic fatalities in late 2017, and the figures were, to say the least, concerning. While not every category of accident fatality increased, some saw the largest single-year increases in over 25 years.
