Fewer Car Accidents Reported At Port Authority

The New York car accident attorneys at Block O’Toole & Murphy are always looking to bring you important information about New York motor vehicle crashes. The story cited below reports that the frequency of car accidents at Port Authority facilities is once again down in 2012. This marks the fourth year out of the last five where we saw the number decline.

The Port Authority attributed the reduction to various programs that focus on safety. It is an important step anytime we see progress in road safety because car accidents can lead to serious injury or even death. They occur most frequently because drivers are distracted, using cell phones, texting, talking or just not paying attention. Other causes include human error, unsafe road conditions and driver intoxication.
