California sees spike in vehicular deaths

As you and other Californians watch the rapid pace at which companies are attempting to make fully autonomous cars a reality on our roads, you might appreciate the potential safety improvement these vehicles are said to provide. Certainly taking human decision-making out of the driving equation may be helpful one day. But, in the meantime, it is humans who have all the control when behind the wheel. Sadly, this responsibility is not taken seriously enough as more people continue to die in traffic accidents.

How can you avoid collisions?

California motorcyclists know that the conditions of the road can change at any moment. Cars in front of you can stop on a dime, people or animals can dart into the road, or objects may roll in front of you. You could easily find yourself scrambling to find a way to avoid hitting them. You may be wondering if there's any way to swerve collisions that could be considered safer than the rest.

Is distracted driving much worse than the data suggests?

While most drivers across California understand that using their phones while behind the wheel poses a danger to others, data shows that the majority of drivers do it anyway. Some experts believe that the crash information that is currently available is seriously underestimating the number of fatalities due to distracted driving. 

How driver negligence endangers motorcyclists

Among the many perks of living in California is the fact that there is rarely an “off season” when it comes to taking out your motorcycle. Around here, many riders get to enjoy the road year-round, but that also means that motorcycle accidents are an all-too-common occurrence. At McKnight, McKnight, McKnight & McKnight, we have a firm understanding of what is causing many of today’s motorcycle accidents, and we have assisted many clients who suffered injury because of another’s negligence.

Studies disagree on the effects ride-sharing has on drunk driving

Communities across California now find ride-sharing apps such as Uber and Lyft as common-place conveniences, and the companies like to tout their effectiveness in combatting drunk driving. However, whether or not these services are making a dent in drunk driving accidents and deaths depends upon which study is considered.
