Two Killed in Ripley County Head On Collision

Two Killed in Ripley County Head On CollisionAt Tabor Law we've noticed more and more head on collisions being reported on Indiana roadways. On Saturday night, two people were killed when a car crossed the center line of State Road 129 in Ripley County. The motor vehicle operator who crossed the center line and a passenger in the car that was struck were both pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the car that was struck head on also sustained serious injuries as a result of the collision and was airlifted to a nearby hospital.

Will Apple's new Do Not Disturb While Driving iPhone feature reduce the number of distracted driving related collisions?

In June Apple made an announcement according to TechCrunch about an iPhone update that could reduce the number of distracted driving accidents on roads across the country. The latest software version in testing, iOS11, will have a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" feature- a customizable phone setting that motorists can turn on to disable ALL notifications. If you're navigationally challenged like me, don't worry, even with this feature on you will still be able to play music and use navigation. Parents can even enable this new Do Not Disturb While Driving feature through Apple's parental controls system. An update of this sort has been long overdue because as we know, many drivers are unable to resist the immediate temptation to check their phone when that notification pops up. Android already offers a distracted driving prevention feature. Apple's update is set to release to the public in September of this year.

You snooze you lose- sleep deprived is no way to drive

You snooze you lose- sleep deprived is no way to driveSnooze behind the wheel, and you could lose not only your license, but your life. Driving while fatigued is one of the lead causes of accidents across the country. Drowsy driving causes as many as 1.2 million collisions on average a year, which result in up to 8,000 fatalities. And drowsy driving doesn't just mean driving when you're tired from a rough night's sleep. Drowsy driving can also be caused by sleep disorders, medications, commercial (truck) drivers, or working the late shift.
