Driverless vehicles a possibility in rural Minnesota

In towns where there are few taxis, buses or public transportation systems, people may struggle to get where they want or need to go. In areas with many disabled individuals and people who can't drive, there's always a risk of pedestrians getting into accidents. Rural areas have more hazards, too, like damaged roads and wildlife to look out for.

Buffalo collision results in 4 people suffering injuries

Distracted drivers are some of the most dangerous. Among them are people who don't pay attention to the roads because they're focused on eating, feeling drowsy or are sending text messages. Others are those who look away at a fancy home on the side of the road or who are daydreaming. While some of these actions seems relatively harmless, they can result in serious crashes when they take place at the wrong time.

A moment of distraction can lead to long-term or permanent damage

A motor vehicle accident could have a significant impact on numerous areas of your life, especially if serious injuries occur. Perhaps while you were travelling home from work, another car suddenly struck your vehicle, and instead of the comfort of your own couch or bed, you might be spending time in the hospital.

What are Minnesota's crash statistics?

In 2015, there were 411 people killed on the highways in Minnesota. While the goal is to see a reduction in crashes each year, that was the same number of people killed as in the year 2010. Interestingly, the state actually has fewer crashes, yet the number of people suffering injuries or dying in them is rising.
