Most drivers in Tennessee have likely been warned of the dangers of drinking and driving throughout their lives. Ample data exists to support that driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol is a recipe for serious and fatal car accidents. Sadly, victims of one car crash are grieving the loss of a child, following negligent impaired driving by one man.
Since Nashville is one of the most popular cities on the eastern side of the nation, few tourists and even residents often prefer walking down the streets instead of driving a car or calling a ride service. It not only allows for great exercise, but it gives people more of a chance to take in the area’s unique atmosphere and visual wonders.
Ambulance drivers always have a difficult task on their hands. They need to transport the victim, medic and any other additional family members or passengers to the hospital as fast as they can while navigating through Nashville’s terrible traffic. Drivers that do not slow down or move over to an adjacent lane when the emergency vehicle starts speeding forward with the sirens blasting could receive up to $500 in fines and up to 30 days in jail.
Remaining safe on Tennessee roadways is dependent on weather and road conditions and the behavior of drivers. When drivers neglect to drive in a safe manner, serious car accidents can occur. Sadly, a recent late night accident resulted in the death of two individuals and injuries to others.
