Side impact collision

     When one vehicle collides with the side of another vehicle, it’s called a side impact collision.  This type of crash can be very dangerous, in part, because a car’s doors generally lack the substance needed to absorb the energy of high speed crashes.  Even in a car with side airbags, it is difficult to completely safeguard drivers and passengers from a side impact crash.  The limited material between the side of the vehicle and the vehicle’s occupants means that the front end of one car can actually enter into the passenger compartment of another vehicle.  According to the United State Office of Health, Safety, and Security, side impact crashes result in over 9,000 deaths a year.  These happen because, when a vehicle is hit squarely on its side doors, the vehicle’s occupants may suffer life threatening injuries or death from broken bones, spinal injuries, paralysis, or brain injuries.

       The root cause of many broadside collisions is negligent driving.  High speed driving, failing to obey traffic signals, and distracted driving can cause side-impact collisions.  Many side impact collisions occur at intersections.  It is common for the crashing car to fail to yield properly at stop signs or red lights, and, in turn, they hit the side of a turning automobile.

How Much Discretion Do USCIS Examiners Have in Approving or Denying Applications?

As immigration applications continue to be subject to a seemingly always-increasing level of scrutiny, and as approval rates have declined, someone considering whether to apply for an immigration benefit (and invest not-insignificant sums in the application) should consider the question of how much discretion an individual examiner has to deny applications that meet all of the legal requirements for approvability.
