Every time you take the road as a driver or a passenger, you find yourself moving in a churning sea of fast-moving vehicles of various sizes and shapes, all racing to their destinations. You are at the mercy of engineering expertise and compliance with safety regulations, as well as the skill and focus of every single driver. Your potential for an accident is staggering when you look at the sheer number of vehicles and drivers in the United States: – 253 million vehicles on our streets and highways; and – 196 million licensed drivers throughout the country.
Add to this the number of other common modes of transportation – such as motor homes, buses, big trucks, trolleys, motorcycles, skateboards, scooters, bicycles, and railroads – and the odds are, an accident could happen at any time.
