Speeding is instrumental in many truck crashes

States post speed limits to ensure your safety and that of other drivers under general conditions, but truck drivers in Kentucky and on highways across the U.S. have to pay special attention to road and weather situations that require extra caution. Often this means operating at slower speeds. Our staff at Gary C Johnson PSC have seen many incidents in which a large truck travelling too fast for the conditions, caused a serious highway crash.

City streets fail older pedestrians

Based on numbers from the 2010 Census, and reported by the Los Angeles Times, people aged 65 and older will make up 19 percent of the U.S. population by 2030. If you are among the approximately 78 million baby boomers turning 65, you may be joining a growing sector of older Americans who are moving to urban centers and taking to the streets. The problem is, Kentucky streets have not necessarily been designed with your pedestrian safety in mind. Serious injury from motor vehicle accidents involving dangerous crosswalks and inadequate signals are a familiar issue for our staff at Gary C Johnson PSC.  

Work zones are treacherous for trucks

A truck is involved in one in four fatal crashes in work zones in the U.S. every year, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In 2011, there were 635 fatal large truck crashes, of which 174 occurred in work zones. Perpetual highway and bridge repair in Kentucky and across travel corridors throughout the U.S., along with other construction and utility work, create dangerous driving conditions for large trucks.

Defective tires pose lethal risk

Millions of unsafe motor vehicle tires are on roads and in stores in Kentucky and throughout the country, according to an investigation by ABC News. The reports stated that due to manufacturer negligence and a federal recall system that is hard to navigate, you might be unaware of how vulnerable you are to the hazards of driving on unsafe tires. At Gary C. Johnson PSC, we are conscious of the dangers to you and your loved ones caused by tire explosions from faulty design and manufacturing.   

Motorcyclists are at greater risk of injury in crashes

If you ride a motorcycle, you have joined millions of other Americans in taking to the open road on two wheels. The difficult news is, you are three times more likely to be killed in an accident on Kentucky and U.S. highways as a motorcyclist than if you are driving a motor vehicle. In addition, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, deaths from motorcycle crashes increased 7 percent from 2011 to 2012. At Gary C. Johnson PSC, we know that when you ride your motorcycle you are particularly vulnerable to serious injury from a crash with a passenger vehicle or truck.
