One thing is clear about our society today: our roads are not always safe. With over 250 million vehicles on the road today, car wrecks happen with an alarming frequency. In 2012, there were an estimated 2.36 million injuries that resulted from car wrecks, and 33,561 fatalities. Those numbers represent lives that were endangered or lost, and families that were forced to deal with tragedy and heartbreak.
Many of these wrecks are not accidents; they result from deliberate choices or clear negligence. Drivers today do not always follow the law. They do not always show care and concern when they get behind the wheel. They text while driving, or drive while intoxicated, or fail to demonstrate care for others on the road with their dangerous driving. As a result, our loved ones are in harm’s way every time they get into a vehicle and travel. We may take measures to protect ourselves, either by driving defensively, or by following the law, but we cannot protect ourselves from the mistakes other people make. Unfortunately, when other drivers make errors, the people who suffer are sometimes the innocent bystanders just trying to get home, or to work, or to school.
