The importance of keeping one’s car cleared off during winter

Many things can be a common sight during the winter here in New York. One is going out to your car and seeing it covered in ice and snow. When a driver encounters this situation, it is very important for them to properly clean off their car, including its windows and mirrors, prior to taking to the roads.

Used cars can come with serious hidden defects

When it comes to purchasing a used car, the old saying, "Let the buyer beware," is very appropriate. We have all either heard of or lived through nightmare scenarios caused by a substandard used vehicle. Most of the time the problems relate to constant breakdowns and expensive repair bills. But the fact is, a lemon of a used car can be more than the source of frustration, it could also be extremely dangerous to drive.

Some days are tougher than others when driving in NYC

Driving through New York City is a challenge on just about any day at any time. But there are some days that are particularly tricky. For example, if you motor through Manhattan when the United Nations is in session, you will face extra traffic congestion. But big events are not the only cause of slow moving traffic.

Yet it seems that far too many citizens and visitors of our fair city have yet to receive that particular message. Or if they did get the message in the form of a text sent to their phones, they may have simply ignored it.

A two-second distraction can double the risk of a car crash

There are many people who spend a great deal of time behind the wheel of an automobile. In fact, it can become an ingrained part of their daily routine. Unfortunately, it is easy to forget how important it is to keep your focus on the road and avoid succumbing to distractions.

Personal injury claims are about more than just money

When it comes to personal injury claims in the aftermath of a car accident, people often get far too tangled up in the monetary values. True, it is encouraging to know that you could recover thousands or even millions of dollars with a successful claim, but the money is often only a part of what motivates a personal injury claim. This is especially true depending on the nature of your injuries, which may be well beyond the capacity of money to heal.
