Truck driver fatigue and the hours of service rules, P.1

Truck driver fatigue is an important issue, or rather problem, when it comes to highway safety. Although most truckers are responsible and don’t take chances behind the wheel, there are some who put both themselves and other motorists at risk by driving without adequate rest.

Comparative negligence rule and aggressive driving

In our previous post, we spoke a bit about the problem of aggressive driving in general and here in Pennsylvania. One of the issues we mentioned at the end of our last post is that aggressive driving is often not a matter of only one individual losing his or her temper and acting out on the road. In some cases, perhaps many, there is a mutual antagonism involved in aggressive driving accidents.

Insurance is obviously an important resource in many areas of our lives. This is especially the case when it comes to automobile accidents. Depending on the type of accident and its impact on the motorists involved, the costs and losses that come up in the wake of a car crash can be enormous. This is especially the case when an accident involves catastrophic injuries such as paralysis or brain injury.

Could seatbelts be included in school buses?

In a prior post, we highlighted the importance of paying attention to school children during the morning hours, as many children are walking to school. However, we do not want to discount the importance of being careful while driving around school buses. Not only is it dangerous for kids getting on and exiting buses, failing to use reasonable care around moving buses could lead to tragic accidents.

Looking at the issue of liability for crashes involving self-driving cars

In our last post, we spoke about recent research conducted at the University of Michigan which looked at the incidence of car accidents involving fully automatic vehicles. As we pointed out, that research suggests—contrary to some expectations—that self-driving vehicles may actually be prone to accidents that ordinary vehicles.

Research looks at incidence of accidents among self-driving vehicles

As consumers, all of us have come to appreciate and benefit from a continual stream of innovation in the automotive industry. Because of this innovation, a wide variety of safety features have trickled down to consumers, and this occurs continuously. Among the new technologies that are becoming more widely available is automatic or self-driving technology.
