This Halloween: Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is currently publicizing their Halloween drunk driving prevention campaign. With the holiday falling on a Friday night, they want motorists and partygoers to know that buzzed driving is drunk driving. If you plan on celebrating with alcohol, designate a driver or make an alternate plan to get home safely. It can be as simple as adding the number for a cab company into your phone ahead of time. 

7.8 Million Cars Recalled for Exploding Airbags

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has recently issued a recall on about 7.8 million vehicles due to defective airbags. The inflators on these airbags can actually explode under the right conditions. Not only will your airbag not protect you in the event of a crash, it might actually kill or seriously injure you. At least four deaths and a plethora of injuries have been linked with the faulty airbags. The airbags in question are in a variety of models from BMW, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota.

Leaf Season Wrecks on Blue Ridge Parkway

An increase in car crashes on the Blue Ridge Parkway has law enforcement officials reminding motorists to drive safely while enjoying the fall scenery. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, this is one of the busiest seasons for the popular scenic roadway. There have been 19 crashes on the 469-mile stretch of road, and half of those wrecks happened in the Pisgah District. There is also some concern that drivers are looking at the leaves instead of focusing on the road. 

Deadly Wrong-Way Crash in Henderson County

On Monday night, two people died in a wrong-way crash on I-26. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the Henderson County wreck happened at about 9:30 p.m. in the eastbound lanes, near mile marker 50.

Six People Hospitalized after I-26 Crash

A rollover crash on I-26 that sent six people to the hospital is being blamed on driver inexperience. According to the Times-News, the 15-year-old driver was licensed in South Carolina and had some type of conditional or provisional license, also known as a "learner's permit." Apparently, the teen driver's vehicle drifted to the right shoulder of the road and hit a section of rumble strips. The driver then jerked the steering wheel and overcorrected the Mazda SUV. The vehicle flipped over on the roadway.
