Understanding and dealing with a truck accident

Truck accidents often have tragic consequences. Due to their size and weight, large commercial trucks have the ability to cause extensive damage to other vehicles and their passengers. If a truck is hauling hazardous materials, the damages can increase exponentially. These are some of the reasons why the government heavily regulates the trucking industry. However, safety requirements cannot stop all accidents from happening.

Determining the safety of self-driving cars

California drivers who are interested in tracking the evolving world of autonomous cars know that one of the big reasons people cite in favor of these vehicles is the alleged safety they may offer. In short, the goal is that a car operated more or all by a computer could be safer than one operated by a human being.

Biker killed by drugged driver

California's temperate climate lends itself so well to motorcycle riding all year round. While mostly good weather may reduce problems with dangerous road conditions, it cannot negate the realities that bikers face when it comes to sharing the road with other motorists. Motorcyclists must always be aware of the risks posed to them by negligent drivers of cars, trucks and other vehicles.

Tips on choosing the right motorcycle gear

Motorcyclists in California know that there is nothing more thrilling than being on the open road. However, along with the many thrills comes a need for safe gear, which can offer protection in a number of different respects to riders of all skill levels. Choosing the right gear can be difficult in some cases, especially for new riders who may be unaware of what comprehensive protection actually looks like.

Distracted driving bans not sufficient

California was one of the first states in the nation to attempt to crack down on the use of phones while driving. As the month of April is designated as Distracted Driving Awareness Month, people will continue to hear about how using phones when behind the wheel is dangerous. This type of effort is needed because statistics show that even with a clear ban on the handheld use of phones while driving, too many drivers refuse to put away their phones.
