Distracted driving can occur when a Reno driver chooses to take his or her attention away from the important task of watching the road and focuses that attention on another person or thing. Certain types of distracted driving can result in the distracted drivers receiving tickets from the law enforcement officials who catch them. More significantly, though, distracted driving is a dangerous practice that can lead to serious and sometimes deadly car accidents.
The human body is composed of complex systems that must function together in order for a person to maintain his or her physical well-being. While many organs and systems play vital roles in managing the health of a person, the brain and associated nervous system are integral to almost every other process the body must complete. Reno residents who have been involved in vehicle crashes and other accidents may have sustained injuries to an important part of their bodies' nervous systems: the spinal cord.
Most Nevada highways are well marked to indicate to drivers where they may permissibly enter and exit the roadways. The signage used serves many purposes, including the protection of drivers from inadvertently driving the wrong way onto busy and high-speed throughways. Traveling at high speeds can be dangerous on its own, but when a driver ends up traveling the wrong way on such a road, the outcome can be deadly.
The Fourth of July is a particularly exciting holiday when Reno residents can enjoy the beauty of Nevada's summer while celebrating the autonomy of our great nation. It is a time when friends become family and communities come together to enjoy each other's company, feast on cookout fare, and watch amazing fireworks displays in the sky. It is also a time when individuals may choose to partake in the consumption of alcohol, which, under controlled circumstances, can be a safe endeavor for adults.
