Fatal Car Accidents Lead to Movement Towards Installation of Speed-Enforcement Cameras

Car accidents continue to plague New York and Department of Transportation Officials think speed-enforcement cameras will curb serious injuries and fatalities that result from motor vehicle collisions. A recent article in 'Am New York' discusses the frequency of car accidents, particularly near schools. The Department of Transportation suggests that the cameras will have a chilling effect on drivers that have a "heavy foot," reducing the number of speeding drivers on our roads. Citing statistics that point to 75% of speeding vehicles being in close proximity to our schools, the Transportation Commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan, offered the cameras as part of the solution to protecting "New Yorkers on our streets."

Car accidents are a frequent cause of serious injury and death. In fact, there was an increase of nearly 50% in car accident fatalities in New York from 2011 to 2012. We need to do a better job of protecting people, particularly our children. Block O'Toole & Murphy has a proud tradition of helping victims of car accidents. For an example of one of our stories of success in helping a child that was a victim in a car accident, review this: $12,000,000 Awarded to Car Accident Victim

There are many different types of injuries one can sustain in an accident and anything we can do to avoid these unnecessary accidents is worth exploring.
