The location of Chelsea is in a highly traveled area, as the city is only three miles from Logan International Airport. Unfortunately, as with many other highly traveled roads by growing city populations, the city limits of Chelsea have been the location of several accidents involving trucks, motorcycles, and personal vehicles. Although some accidents are of no particular fault of either driver, many may be avoided if drivers took more care when driving in rain, snow, or fog. Additionally, even though Massachusetts adopted a “no texting and driving” legislative policy in 2010, one of the primary causes of vehicle accidents in the Commonwealth include the negligence of one driver as he or she texts. The National highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that more than 3,000 individuals are killed in distracted driving accidents each year. Many of those involve drivers who were talking or texting on a cell phone while behind the wheel, which not only creates danger for others on the road, but also for the driver and those who are present in the vehicle with him or her. The most recent statistics show that one in every ten Massachusetts drivers are texting while driving, which means that for every ten persons, ten are at risk of being involved in a negligent automobile accident.
As an urban city close to the heart of Boston, Chelsea is the location of several fun parks and carnivals. While amusement parks and carnivals are intended as places for games and enjoyment, both riders and bystanders are at risk of suffering serious injuries. Roller Coasters, water slides, and many other rides provide must entertainment for children and adults, yet they also create a variety of dangerous scenarios that could have detrimental effects. Injuries and unfortunately even death may come from either riding or being in proximate distance to such rides. There are several causes of injury in amusement parks and carnivals, such as defective or broken rides, negligently constructed or maintained rides, malfunctioning safety equipment such as seatbelts and shoulder restraints, failure by the staff to properly identify the risks associated with a certain ride, and the negligence of a ride operator.
