\n. \n First Vehicle Accident \n. \nThat depends on what sort of vehicle you are asking about. I'm sure there were lots of horse drawn vehicle accidents, long before they kept records.
Answer . If a leased vehicle is in an accident, the lessor has to notify the lease company, along with their insurance company. Sometime the lease company will have you go through your insurance for repairs, other times they send you to their repair shop (if they have one).
I say that to avoid accidents on the road everyone should just follow the laws and traffic lights. If you break the rules you will receive consequences such as getting injured or having to pay lots of money. . In the UK the rules of the road are governed by the Highway code. If everyone followe…d these rules the roads would be safe, but the reality is that many drivers, pedestrians and other road users cut corners and sometimes are not fully familiar with the rules which result in accidents happening. I suggest therefore that in addition to following the rules of the road - you watch out for road users making mistakes and be ready to react. 1. Don't text while driving. 2. Don't drink while driving. (Quite obvious, but people do, and it causes fatal accidents.) 3. Don't fiddle around with the radio. 4. Don't multi task while driving. (Putting on makeup, trying to call someone, etc. 5. FOLLOW THE LAWS. Also quite obvious, but some people don't! Do not run red lights, follow the speed limit, don't turn right when you're not supposed to! All basic, but when people don't follow the laws, (which unfortunately happens quite often,) accidents happen! 6. BUCKLE UP! These are just six basic things that can help prevent accidents. There are most definitely more out there. (MORE)

Some of the Preventive Measures are : Avoiding alcohol before driving prevents road traffic accidents. The use of remediation therapy for drink driving offenders will reduce the number that reoffend. A far more extensive use of random breath testing , accompanied by a high level of publicity will… lead to a reduction in injuries. To be most effective breath testing should be intensive and applied to everybody at a checkpoint and not depend on "due cause". Strategies that increase the use of seat belts or child restraints will result in fewer injuries. Stricter enforcement of speed limits will result in fewer injuries. The overall contribution of speed to accidents is not known but is widely quoted to be one third of all fatalities. Roadside guardrails (crash barriers) and crash cushions will reduce injury severity. Safer design of roads and roadside environments will result in fewer injuries. (MORE)
The following are guidelines to help prevent falling accidents: . Stairways should have secure banisters or handrails on both sides going from top to bottom.. All stairways, porches and hallways should be well lit.. All stairways, porches and hallways should be kept clear. Small area rugs sho…uld have a non-skid back or pad to keep them securely in place.. In bathtubs and showers place non-slip mats, adhesive safety strips or decals to keep from slipping. Bath mats on the floor should have non-skid bottoms.. Install grab bars in the tub and shower.. Spills should be wiped up immediately.. To prevent children from falling out of second story windows, install window guards with emergency release devices.. Install night lights in all hallways and bathrooms.. Telephone and electrical cords should be tucked out of the way of walk areas.. Make sure toys and games are put away and not left out near hallways, steps or landings.. Install child safety gates at the top and bottom of all stairways when very young children are present.. A sturdy step stool with hand rails should be used when reaching up for out of reach items.. Follow the dosage instructions on medications..

Keep your vehicle in good shape, tires, brakes, mirrors, windows, lights. Drive defensively, maintain distance and obey speed limits. If conditions are poor, rain, wind, snow, dust, dark, adapt your driving - don't hesitate to go slower than posted limits. Don't drive unless you feel up to it, if yo…u're tired - pull over and rest awhile. Drugs - don't drive at all. Keep your attention on the road, avoid fiddling with cell phones, radios and whatever. Leave yourself enough time - stress and speeding is behind lots of accidents. (MORE)
Three main routes: 1. Good design. The overall concept has to be well thought out, and big decisions like secondary containment decided on. Then it is a matter of working out all possible failure sequences, and showing that major accidents are reduced to a probability of less than 10 -6 per annum. …This analysis relies on a multitude of assessments of, for example, properties of materials and how they behave in possible conditions in the plant, especially in the primary circuit. Stress analysis is very important and must take account of thermal cycles and vibration levels. Also the behaviour of materials in possible chemical conditions. The possible earthquake levels in the locality need to be assessed and applied to the design to find any weak points. The control and instrumentation must be assessed for the required functions and made reliable enough. And so on, you get the idea I expect. 2. Construction: it is very important to make sure the plant is actually built to the required specification, the correct materials used, and techniques such as welding must be fully inspected and recorded. 3. Operation. The operators must be well trained and supervised, and have the correct operating manuals, and have had training in what to do in unusual conditions. The owners should also have a team of head office engineers who can continuously assess that the plant is being run correctly, and analyse for any improvements to be made in the plant. The above all applies to the owners and builders. In addition there must be an independent body who give the licence to operate and regularly examine the plant and operations for compliance. This is the NRC in the US and the NII in the UK, but all countries must have such a body. (MORE)

It's when there is something you're trying to stop (prevent) from happening, so you take a preventive measure (do something) to stop the thing you think might happen.
The main thing to realise is that the Russian RBMK design reactor has only been built in Russia and former Soviet Bloc countries, so the lessons learned are not on the whole applicable. I know that various design changes were made and incorporated in reactors of that type which were still operating …subsequent to Chernobyl, but it is still not a design that would be built in the future. The main lesson in general terms is to consider very carefully any experiment to be carried out on a reactor, to make sure the procedure is written up carefully and thoroughly, to make sure the operators understand what is going to be done, and to have a team standing by to advise the operators as it is carried out. Needless to say, the overriding of safety systems which was part of the reason for the Chernobyl failure must not be allowed. I know for a fact that this would not be allowed in the UK, but of course can't vouch for every country that uses nuclear power. This is one of the unknowns- in countries where the rule of law is somewhat flexible and liable to be broken by over powerful politicians, one can't have full confidence that scientist's advice will always be listened to. As far as other reactor designs go, certainly Chernobyl would have caused scientists and engineers to think through their safety analysis again, but I doubt if anything positive came out. Diversity of safety shutdown systems for instance was already part of the AGR design and not added after Chernobyl. For the PWR design in the US and elsewhere it was the Three Mile Island incident in 1979 that made people sit up and realise that some aspects of the design needed strengthening, rather than the Chernobyl experience.

Serious train accidents are caused by a variety of mechanical and/or human factors. A spokesman for the Federal Railroad Administration in Washington , and others, have suggested that many mechanical failures are actually a result of deferred maintenance. The railroad companies, he said, in an eff…ort to eke out greater profits have reduced or postponed maintenance to both their rolling stock and tracks. In fact, the number of rail maintenance workers is now half what it was 20 years ago. Human factors causing train accidents involve three areas: - Health problems of a crew member, like a heart attack - Substance abuse - Human error caused by fatigue While catastrophic health problems are largely unavoidable, and post-accident drug testing has dramatically reduced the incidence of substance abuse, fatigue remains a key factor in a large number of train accidents. Many train workers agree that sleep deprivation and the grueling schedules were the most serious safety issue on the nation's freight trains. Because of past concerns about fatigue-related crashes, Federal Railroad Administration law now limits train-operator work shifts to 12 hours. But workers contend that being marooned repeatedly in a company motel far from home is not their idea of restful time off. "The rules are written in blood here," one engineer said. "The only time they change is when people are injured or die." On the passenger side of the track, there are a number of items and tips that passengers should be aware of to help train workers stay focused, which could then lower accident numbers. Most of the safety tips that passengers need to follow come from realizing that a train is heavy and dangerous machine. A train should always be given the right of way. Once a train has started moving, it can take a long time for it to stop. A 100-car train moving at 55mph will need at least a mile of track in order to come to a complete stop, once emergency breaks have been applied. If locomotive engineer on a train can see you, it is already too late. With this in mind, always follow traffic signals in regards to train tracks. Trains are not always on an exact schedule, so expect a train at any time. Never race a train to a crossing and do not stop a car on railroad tracks. As a passenger, simply following the rules posted in train stations will prevent accidents. Never try to board a moving train. When a train approaches, be sure to stay behind the warning strips/signs. The strips may seem unnecessary, but a train may extend three or more feet outside of the rail, causing serious injury to people who are not paying attention. By following rules and regulations posted in stations, passengers allow train workers to stay focused on their jobs, which can prevent accidents and keeps trains running more smoothly. Although human error and fatigue may still cause accidents, any effort to help reduce the number of those accidents is well worth it. The safety rules were created for a reason, and should be followed in any situation. The information you obtain from this article is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. You should consult an attorney for individual advice regarding your own situation. (MORE)
In the US, there are virtually no fire accidents in trains today as they have already been prevented. In the 1800's, fires on trains were quite common as a result of even minor incidents, because stoves were used for heating passenger cars. By the 1900's, the stoves were gone, but many cars were sti…ll made of wood, resulting in fires being a concern. Today, the sources of fire are extremely limited. On freight trains, a hot journal can result in flames with hot grease burning, but fire is not the typical result and major concern, but a derailment. On passenger trains, sources of fire are nearly non-existent except at the locomotive and sources on electric trains. All materials on passenger trains are chosen and treated to prevent or slow a fire. The typical fire today on any train is at the locomotive and with the exception of catastrophic incidents (where fire was secondary), these rarely have significant impact. Current US regulations have severe restrictions on fuel for trains going through confined areas where fire may have present an increased risk, even as a secondary risk. (MORE)

Is there more to this question than meets the eye? Basically, if vehicles don't touch then it's difficult to see what accident has happened, but of course, if a body has been squeezed between the vehicles, thereby preventing them from touching, then yes, there has been an accident. Answer: Any In…surance company can be claimed for the damage of the vehicle and not the accident. It is up to the investigating agencies to look into the cause of the damage and ascertain if it was damage to accident in contact with what obstacle. It is not necessary that there a visual contact. Accidents/damages can occur even without a contact for insurance claims to be claimed for. (MORE)

A risk assessment is nothing more than a careful examination ofwhat, in your work, could cause harm to people, so that you canweigh up whether you have taken enough precautions or should domore to prevent harm. The aim is to make sure that no one gets hurtor becomes ill. Accidents and ill health can… ruin lives, and affectyour business too if output is lost, machinery is damaged,insurance costs increase or you have to go to court. A risk assessment does not need to be complicated. In most firms inthe commercial, service and light industrial sectors, the hazardsare few and simple. You probably already know whether, for example,you have machinery that could cause harm, or if there is an awkwardentrance or stair where someone could be hurt. If so, check thatyou have taken what reasonable precautions you can to avoid injury. Your risk assessment tells you that more needs to be done about therisk from the activities under your control. How do you decide whatthat 'more' should be? In the great majority of case, referring togood practice will give you the answer. (MORE)

1. Eliminate all driving distractions. Distracted driving is blamed for 80% of traffic accidents according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Adiministration. Anything from cell phones to singing can significantly interfere with your ability to focus on the road ahead. 2. Avoid the left lane. Ac…cording to research, most collisions happen in the left lane of a freeway. If you are trying to avoid an accident, the left lane offers fewer escape routes than the middle or right lanes. You are also more likely to receive a ticket when driving in the fast lane. 3. Survey the road ahead. Instead of only paying attention to the vehicle in front of you- make sure you pay attention to 3 or 4 cars ahead of you. This way you know what to expect and will be able to react more efficiently in case of emergency. 4. Keep your hands on the wheel. Grip the steering wheel at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. This will give you greater control of your vehicle, making it easier to maneuver in tough situations. 5. Check your blind spots. Make sure you always know what's happening in your blind spots. Failing to check your blind spots while changing lanes is an easy way to get in an accident. 6. Beware of intersections. A significant percentage of accidents happen at intersections from individuals running red lights or not paying attention to pedestrians etc. Try to slow down and watch out for changing lights and pedestrians. Do not slam on the gas the minute the light turns green- make sure to watch for other drivers running red lights. 7. Judge a driver by the look of their vehicle. A lot can be inferred by the condition of a drivers car. Heavy body damage could signify a reckless driver. 8. Know your car's limits. Know what your car can and can't do, so you can better react to road conditions. If you know your car's breaks don't stop on a dime- increase your following distance. If your car is not fast enough to pull in front of a vehicle- wait until it is safe. 9. Maintain the condition of your vehicle. I have seen many car accidents caused by vehicle malfunctions. Get regular tune-ups to ensure your car is fit for the road. Some malfunctions you may not even be aware of- so make sure you regularly read any information mailed to you about your car and pay attention to recalls on your vehicle. 10. Avoid nighttime driving. Lower visibility and a higher drunk-driving rate make the roads particularly dangerous after hours. (MORE)
Mostly accidents are caused by people not paying attention to whatthey are doing, using mobile phones or falling asleep at the wheelfor example. Other accidents are the result of "human error"misjudging road conditions or traffic behaviour etc. Relatively fewaccidents are caused by speed alone (a co…mmon misunderstanding) andfewer still these days by mechanical failure of the vehicle itself.In summary accidents are generally caused by people. New, inexperienced drivers have more accidents (hence they payhigher insurance premiums). More experienced drivers have lessaccidents because they are better able to predict hazards and reactaccordingly. Training people to pay more attention to their driving andimproving road markings reduces the number of accidents. Answer:Drunk driving is one of America's deadliest crimes," saidacting Secretary of Transportation Maria Cino. Of all U.S. trafficdeaths during 2005, 39 percent involved alcohol.-U.S. DEPARTMENT OFTRANSPORTATION.Car accidents kill more than one million people andinjure approximately 50 million each year. Drivers who areotherwise responsible and safe may take great risks by drivingafter they drink an alcoholic beverage. During 2008, in the UnitedStates, more than 37,000 people lost their lives in automobileaccidents. About a third of these died in crashes involving driverswho had been drinking. Even the smallest amount of alcohol canimpair your driving skills. Some resolve not to drink any alcoholat all if they are going to drive. Exceeding the limit usually makes little difference in the time itwill take you to arrive at your destination. For example, over adistance of 50 miles (80 km), increasing from 65 miles (104 km) perhour to 80 miles (129 km) per hour will gain you less than nineminutes. Is it worth risking an accident to gain that little time? Seat belts are designed for safety.

Many, perhaps most, accidents could be prevented by changing peoples' attitudes to it and making teaching more thorough. Most people eroneously think that once they have passed their test they know how to drive. The fact is that once one has passed that initial test there is an infinity still t…o learn, and learning about driving should continue throughout one's life. To be able to drive on the public highways is a privilege, not a right. A privilege which may be enjoyed so long as one observes the rules. There's a much better chance of doing that if one understands the reason for those rules, and this is where education is so important, but sadly so overlooked. There is sound reason for introducing periodic re-tests once one has been awarded that first pass. Also, in some countries there is a, so far, voluntary, advanced driving test. Most drivers in most countries never get good enough to pass this unless they have a mature attitude towards the skill and art of safe driving and are willing to have their driving assessed and apply suggested corrections to bad habits. One advantage of these schemes, is knowing that having passed an advanced test, not only are you are considered to be safer than the average driver, membership of a body such as the Institute of Advanced Motorists, in the U.K., will qualify you for discounted insurance. You are are far better risk. (MORE)
Although it is difficult to control the actions of others, it is possible to control the actions of yourself. The best way to avoid a motorcycle accident (along with almost all other accidents) is to be aware, and be cautious. If it appears that an oncoming driver is being reckless, then react to it… as so, such as taking your foot off the gas, preparing for a sudden stop or a sudden maneuver. Awareness, however, should not be limited to other reckless drivers, but should also be applied to our own reckless driving as well. We have all cut out in front of a driver or pulled a move that we knew we should not have. By being aware of these actions and learning from them, we can avoid doing them in the future, keeping ourselves and others out of harm's way. (MORE)

Yes, a 'Doppler Brake' based on a bat's sense can be developed to prevent train collision and similar accidents. Each coach of a train along with the engine can emit sound waves which may be inaudible to human beings in the range below 20Hz or above 20,000 Hz to be sensed by the other trains quite f…ar away to slow down and stop without colliding or to do the needful. It would need a significant amount of research to ascertain the frequency and to filter unnecessary echoes.
