In-car Breathalyzers may cause accidents to occur

Interlock devices used to prevent drunk driving accidents are becoming increasingly popular in Oregon and across the United States. These devices require that a driver breathes into a Breathalyzer before the car will start. Though some advocates believe that their use helps deter drunk driving, they may also cause car accidents to occur.

Common causes of truck accidents in Oregon

Truck accidents can be caused by a number of things, and drivers in Oregon should be aware of at least five of them. The first and most obvious factor is negligent driving. Truckers can speed, drive drowsy and drive drunk, among other things. It's interesting to note, however, that the majority (about 81%, according to some studies) of truck crashes due to driver error are actually caused by passenger vehicle drivers, not truckers.

Pediastrian, cyclist deaths increased in 2018
