Would You Consider This A "Hit & Run" Accident?

Imagine you were walking in the designated pedestrian section of the American River Parkway Trail and you were run into by a bicycle from behind. Imagine further you are a legend in the running community and the crash resulted in five facial fractures, a fractured skull, a broken hand, two broken teeth and serious lacerations over much of your face and body. Finally, Imagine the person who hit you and then fled dropped his cell phone... the same phone that bystanders used to summon paramedics. The last piece of the puzzle is the District Attorney's office cannot determine if a felony has been committed and cannot use the information from the cell phone to identify the bike rider.

Where Is Your "Safe Place" While Driving?

The media has written extensively about so called "safe spaces" on college campuses. These are places people can go to stay as safe as possible from outside influences. We thought it might be interesting to explore some of the "safe spaces" and "safe behaviors" while driving.

Self Driving Cars... Turns Out Their Biggest Threat Is...

It's not a question of if, it's become a question of when. When will we see self driving cars, trucks, buses and even trains. After logging hundreds of thousands of test drive miles over the last few years it turns out driverless cars could be available for use by the end of 2017. If the research is accurate we know the biggest threat to self driving cars boils down to cars driven by other humans!

United Airlines Settles Passenger Beating Case

The "re-accommodation" of Dr. David Dao from a United Airlines Passenger jet was caught on cell phone video by several horrified onlookers and was settled just 20 days after the incident. The settlement is confidential and we know how badly United wanted to get this off the front page of the newspaper and out of the minds of the travelling public. More on this in a moment.

Deadly Distractions Other Than Cell Phones

News reports make it appear that all cases of distracted driving are related to cell phones and texting. This is simply not the case according to the National Safety Council. Since cell phone usage accounts for just over 50% of driving distractions it is worth looking at the "rest of the story."

California Ranked #1 In Pedestrian Deaths In The Nation

A just released study shows that California leads the nation in pedestrian deaths with an increase of 11% in the past 6 months. The study went on to reveal the shocking fact that almost 2 pedestrians per day die in the Golden State. The most disturbing aspect is the cause is known and the deaths preventable.

Drones Sometimes Fall From The Sky

Recently a child in Southern California was injured by a piece of debris after a drone collided with a tree. That piece of debris hit the child as she was in a stroller. In another incident a small child in the United Kingdom was rendered partially blind by a drone that was being flown by a family friend and the friend lost control.

Passenger Rights In The Event Of A Car Crash

Passengers often feel like the odd person out after a car accident. Since they weren't the driver the odds are, with rare exception, they aren't going to be at fault. Since they are a passenger they often feel like there is no place to turn to recover financially from their injuries. We have often been told they don't want to pursue the driver if they were at fault and if the other driver was at fault the complexity of going after them as a passenger is overwhelming.

Driving Deaths Surge In New Report

A recent report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals fatal traffic accidents increased at the alarming rate of over 8% in the first 9 months of last year. Another aspect of this report is the reality that most of these aren't accidents and instead should be defined as automobile crashes due to the reality of an accident being outside of someone's control.

A New year Brings New Laws To Curb Distracted Driving

Not long ago we published a blog about people taking "selfies" while driving and the problems it created. Doing something other than driving is something Henry Ford never considered and it seems many are focused on doing everything except driving in a defensive manner as we were taught in driver's education. As a result of all of the distractions drivers are faced with, new laws have been created.
