New York Cab Ride Without Seat-belt Turns Dangerous

After 50 stitches, headaches and hours with a plastic surgeon, a young female passenger of a New York Taxi is by now probably convinced that riding in a taxi without a seat belt is NOT a good idea. People in general who get into a yellow cab don’t bother to fasten their seat belt.

For one New York cab ride  passenger  a false sense of  security causes her to almost lose her life.  She sat back, did not “buckle-up”, and enjoyed the ride. Or did she?

Months back, that relaxed New York mind-set nearly cost this young passanger her life at the intersection of NYC’s 59th St. and Park Ave. The taxi driver according to the passenger had ran a red light. He ended-up crashing into another cab making a left turn.

The young female passanger was thrust forward on impact and smashed into the taxi’s hard plastic partition. This resulted in a a broken nose, deep lacerations to her face and a cut eyelid. Her face appeared completely busted. Witnesses at the scene indicates that the victim in this accident look as if her face had been crushed.

She was rushed to New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center, where doctors had to stitch up her face. The other passenger riding along, was also not wearing a seat-belt, did not do come out of this accident without a scratch either. He had to spend 3 nights in intensive care with bleeding to his brain and and a banged up face from hitting the partition.

NYC Cabbbies

"Buckle-up when getting into a NYC Cab"

The doctor who repaired the victims facial damage, said that it is unfortunately common among the taxi riding public who don’t wear seat belts and don’t realize the danger of the partition. Although improving, a permanent scar will be a daily reminder of that catastrophic cab ride.

When reading this story hearing the term “buckle up” when riding a taxi cab or any vehicle, doesnt sound like such a bad idea.

Taxis in New York City transport 240 million people a year, making up 25% of all the transport in the city. Injuries in taxi crashes, including those involving yellow cabs, legal livery cars and illegal gypsy cabs, with such high numbers are inevitable. New YorkCity Street are congested and dangerous for the driver and his or her passanger!

And over the past year, bicycle advocates and the families of killed cyclists have repeatedly accused the police of failing to properly handle these investigations, obstructing the release of information about the accidents and failing to prosecute reckless drivers.

Smoking pot risk of car crash

Posted by 24hourattorney on February 11, 2012

Smoking pot within three hours of driving doubles your chance of a major crash, Canadian researchers have found.

Their study, published Thursday in the British Medical Journal, the first to tackle the link between crashes and cannabis use, examined data from more than 49,411 vehicular crash victims and excluded any incidents involving alcohol.

“The level of impairment might not be as severe as alcohol intoxication, but it’s there and it does require a public health response,” expert Wayne Hall told ABC Science.

The researchers said more information is needed to determine the level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)- the active compound in marijuana – that causes impairment in driving competence.

But there is a positive link between THC levels and crash risk, the data show.

Despite the clear danger of driving high, law enforcement agencies have very few tools to address the problem, the expert said, despite the fact that that marijuana is the second-most sited substance in motor vehicle incidents.

Although it is easy to measure blood alcohol levels using a breath test, it is much harder to determine concentrations of THC in the saliva and gauge driver impairment on the spot, Hall added.
