How safe is it to travel by train?

When you need to get around Washington or the rest of the country, you have several options available to you depending on finances and your timeline, and you may decide, at least sometimes, to get to your destination by train. It may trouble you to know, however, that traveling by train is actually more dangerous than traveling by plane, and taking the bus, too, is typically a safer transportation option.

Drivers, cyclists must be vigilant at traffic signals

Even if you are a safe, responsible driver and you consistently follow the rules of the road, you still face unavoidable dangers when other motorists fail to exercise the same level of care behind the wheel. At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we understand that the number of fatalities caused by drivers who run red lights is at an all-time high, and that many red-light car crashes are avoidable and caused by the negligence of other motorists.

Automated vehicle levels and safety

Most residents in Washington State have likely heard a lot of talk or read many articles about the emergence of autonomous vehicles. They may not be aware that they have even seen vehicles on the road with some levels of autonomous capability. This is due, in part, to the fact that there are multiple levels of autonomy and some still require the involvement of human drivers. While these vehicles are touted as a means to improve safety on the road, that may not be as straightforward as it sounds and the different levels of autonomy may contribute to that.
