There are many people who travel Maryland roadways who are, overall, safe drivers. They try to follow all traffic laws and avoid distractions while driving. Unfortunately, some car accidents are caused by some of the safest of drivers who slightly misjudge a turn or distance. While the mistake may be out of character, it can still have devastating consequences, sometimes resulting in a fatality. Police are still trying to work out all of the details associated with one man's death in a recent tragic accident.
There are many measures in place to keep users of Maryland roadways safe. Legislators work hard to ensure that laws protect drivers and appropriately punish those found guilty of traffic infractions. Additionally, motor vehicle manufacturers work diligently to ensure that vehicles have adequate safety features. Despite these measures, car accidents still happen, and lives may be lost. Unfortunately, one man was recently killed in Anne Arundel in a head-on collision.
Maryland residents may recall the case of a police officer from Howard County allegedly being responsible for a crash last summer.

There are many good drivers on the road.

Many people await the day when they are finally able to get their learner's permit. Unfortunately, these inexperienced drivers often have a large amount to learn before they are able to drive unattended.

In a recent case, authorities allege that a male who should not have been driving unsupervised crashed into a local cell phone store.
Football is a major pastime in this country. Even months before the football season starts, people begin preparing with countdowns to the first game and parades in celebration of the local professional team.

As car accidents tend to do, this family has been left with several medical bills.
