Do teen car accidents increase in the summer?

Last week's post discussed the hazards of distracted driving and focused specifically on how drivers taking pictures of other accidents on the road pose a risk to paramedics on the scene. Washington State troopers claim that distracted driving of any kind remains a problem on the road and that most of the time the people they pull over are searching for their favorite songs, operating a navigation system, holding their phones, or texting. However, even talking to a passenger or changing the radio can become a distraction if the driver takes his or her eyes and mind off the road for a short period of time.

Distracted drivers taking pictures of crashes cause crashes

Much has been said about the dangers of distracted driving and how texting and driving is emerging as the most common cause of distracted driving accidents. However, new research is pointing to another cause of distracted driving accidents-documenting a car accident as driving by it.

Are you aware of the hazards you face as a paramedic?

In Washington state, people typically look up to nurses, law enforcement, teachers and first responders because individuals in these professions usually care more about the needs of others than about their own. Paramedics, who face potential danger with every response to a call, also fall into that category.
