Car Accidents in Hawaii
A significant cause of vehicle accidents across the state is speeding. The Hawaii Department of Transportation has attempted to reduce the number of speed-related crashes and associated deaths by increasing the penalties inflicted upon those cited for the act.
Hawaii is also working hard to fight distracted driving, which is the number one cause of car accidents in the United States. The ubiquitousness of mobile phones and the ever-growing obsession with social media have forever changed the way drivers behave behind the wheel.
Distracted driving has been proven to be more perilous than drunk driving’ a fact supported by car accident statistics that show in 2012, police across the state issued more than 5,0000 tickets relating to operating a motor vehicle while using an electronic handheld device.
In spite of their best efforts, however, car accidents continue to happen every day and have long-term consequences for injured victims and their families.
