Many kids have cellphones pretty early in life

The cellphone habits a person acquires can have many impacts on them. For instance, such habits could influence their safety as a driver. This is because a person's habits when it comes to their cellphone could impact how prone they could be to trying to use their phone when they are driving.

Bill seeks to expand Illinois' Move Over law

When out on major multi-lane roads, like multi-lane highways, it is very important for drivers to pay close attention to what is going on around them. On these roads, failures by drivers to notice special circumstances when they arise and to react properly to them after spotting them can result in particularly major accidents. Personal injury attorneys can provide victims of major highway accidents with legal guidance on compensation issues.

Siri, who's liable if a driverless car crashes? Is this a trick question?

The spate of auto recalls during 2015 made us wonder about a statistic that safety advocates and motor vehicle manufacturers regularly quote. An estimated 33,000 people die in car accidents every year in this country, they say, and 90 percent of those fatalities are the result of human error. Drunk drivers, people who do not wear their seat belts, drivers who ignore traffic lights -- to misquote "King Kong," the thinking is generally "Twasn't motor vehicles but human error that caused the crash."

Feds shift gears on school bus safety 'best practices'

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration is in the news again, this time because of a surprising about-face regarding seat belts. The switch is not the result of multiple recalls or any alarming statistical findings. The data we discussed in our Nov. 25 post certainly showed that seat belts save lives: Not wearing a seat belt is at the top of the list (by a sizeable margin) of the Fatal Four causes of death in traffic accidents.

NHTSA says crash fatalities up in 2015 after decades of decline

Just in time for the holiday travel rush, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released accident data for the first half of 2015. Spoiler alert: It is not good news. For the first time in many years, the number of fatal accidents on U.S. highways increased year-over-year. And not by a little.

In with the new GM and out with the old in switch liability cases

Plaintiffs in cases involving defective ignition switches installed in General Motors Co. vehicles received some good news this week. GM recalled millions of vehicles in 2014 after the faulty switches were linked to multiple accidents. The switches could slip out of the run position, shutting down the vehicle's operating systems, including brakes, power steering and airbags. 

The trick: Avoid preventable accidents. The treat: A safe Halloween

If your child is among the 41 million children between 5 and 14 who will be trick-or-treating next week, you know that safety comes first and fun comes second. As the title says, the trick is to avoid preventable accidents. The treat is that the kids have a great time and come home with fond memories.
