Faulty vehicle components can increase your risk in a car

Although you wouldn't be wrong by including those items on the list, you would be overlooking an important factor that contributes to a significant number of collisions and serious vehicle issues every year.

Driving while drowsy is more dangerous than many realize

A lack of sleep often leads to fatigue, a grumpy attitude and difficulty concentrating. The negative impacts that sleep deprivation has on a person are well documented.

That's why Ford Motor Company used World Sleep Day on March 15, to highlight some of the dangers that drowsy drivers expose themselves to.

Study links distracted driving death rates with cellphone laws

A new study suggests that distracted driving is factoring into more and more car accident fatalities. From 2015 to 2017, more than 1,400 people in the U.S. died in car crashes where one of the drivers was distracted by a cellphone. However, fatality rates differ by state. Ohio, which has no ban on handheld phone use and a partial ban on texting, ranked 26th with a distracted driving fatality rate of 1.26 people per 10 vehicle miles traveled.
