Impact of car size on vehicle collisions

New Yorkers who have small cars may enjoy better gas mileage, but they also have higher risks of being seriously injured or killed when they are involved in collisions. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway safety, people who are in small cars have twice the risk of being killed in accidents when they are compared with people who are in larger, heavier vehicles such as trucks or SUVs.

Motor vehicle crash deaths increase threefold at night

There are several reasons why driving during the evening and nighttime hours is more dangerous in New York and around the country. Municipalities eager to avoid rush hour traffic congestion often schedule road construction and repair crews to work at night, and drunk drivers are a persistent danger in the late night and early morning hours. Government accident data shows that the chances of being killed in a car accident are three times higher at night, but there are steps that motorists can take to reduce these risks.

Record number of convictions overturned in 2016

Little is said about attorneys or organizations that work to free people falsely accused of (and convicted of) crimes that they did not commit. People only seem to know about them when a person is freed from death row or are released from prison after decades of incarceration. While these stories are still more of the exception than the rule, more people are being exonerated after being found innocent despite being prosecuted.
