Car accidents are responsible for an incredible amount of deaths in the United States. Just in 2009, 33,808 people died in car accidents. One might think that responsibility is the first thing expected from such accidents, but it is surprising how until today people still avoid their responsibilities such as cases of hit and run accidents.
