Speeding tops list of aggressive driving behaviors

Drivers in Ontario may be interested in a new study about aggressive driving released by the University of Waterloo in Canada.

Pedestrian accidents more common in less affluent areas

When there is an auto accident in Ontario or elsewhere in Canada, people who are among the most vulnerable to injury and death are pedestrians and bicyclists. There are many preconceived notions as to why this is the case, including encountering a drunk driver, a distracted driver or a reckless driver. However, there are often other reasons for the prevalence of pedestrian accidents, especially in certain areas.

Girl dies in crash involving taxi

Ontario snowfall results in large number of crashes

The day of heavy snow for the winter in Ontario resulted in hundreds of car accidents because of reckless or negligent driving on dangerous roads. According to a sergeant with the Ontario Provincial Police, there were more than 400 crashes investigated over a 24 hour period, not including all the cars that lost control or spun out on their own. A special weather advisory was issued by Environment Canada at the beginning of the storm, and Winter Operations advised drivers via Twitter that there would be salt trucks operating throughout the day.

Why time shifts can lead to more crashes

In Ontario, personal injury accidents between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. increase dramatically in the 30 days after the clocks get set back an hour. This is partially because drivers in the province and throughout Canada are more likely to be driving home in the dark. A lack of light can make it harder to navigate roads that could also be slick with rain or leaves. It can also be harder to see when rain falls on pavement that is now illuminated by street lights.
