Autopilot features in cars don't let drivers off the hook

We have been reading about the promise of driver-less cars for years. And while we are closer than we've ever been to this type of technology, we are still quite a ways away from being able to jump in the car and nap or read our way through a road trip.

In fact, the current state of automatic operation in cars may actually require that drivers pay more attention to driving, not less. Below, we examine a few reasons why we need to remain cautious and vigilant when it comes to self-driving features in cars.

Keep your kids safe from dog bites this summer

Did you know that your child is at an increased risk of being bitten by a dog during the summer months? That is according to researchers who say that factors like increased irritability for dogs during the summer and increased time spent outside by kids contribute to a rise in biting incidents.

However, there are steps you can take to protect your kids and prevent dog bites as we head into the summer months.

Commercial vehicle inspection blitz coming this week

Let's imagine being back in school. On the first day of class, you receive a syllabus that shows a big test coming up at the end of the spring. As that date draws closer and closer, you get more reminders to study and prepare for the big test. If test day comes and you still haven't studied, then you would have no one to blame but yourself if you fail.

This is the way we can think about the upcoming annual trucking inspection blitz the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance is conducting this week. 

4 summer driving hazards that might surprise you

Every driver knows that there are dangers associated with driving. We know that disobeying traffic laws can be dangerous, as is driving while distracted or drunk. 

However, there are some driving hazards of which you might not be as aware. These potentially surprising threats to your safety can be more common during the summer months, so it is a good idea to be aware of them in order to avoid them.

Car accidents and physical therapy: Know your legal options

There may come a time in your life when your doctor suggests physical therapy. While this may not be something that you want to do, it's important to realize that physical therapy has a positive effect on many people's health.

In fact, if you were injured in a car accident, physical therapy may be something that your doctor suggests in the near future, and it is important to know your legal options for covering the cost of this kind of care.

Criminal offenses that increase in summer months

Memorial Day is coming up next week, and many people consider it to be the unofficial start of summer. With this in mind, it can be a good idea to talk about some types of criminal offenses that are more likely to occur in summer months.

This information comes from a special report from the U.S. Department of Justice, which also notes that the seasonal fluctuations stem from factors including increased daylight hours, temperature changes and fluctuations in personal routines, like being on summer vacation or increased drug or alcohol use.

Don't discard your legal options after a garbage truck accident

Did you know that the garbage truck driving down your street is a commercial vehicle? And even though garbage trucks typically move much slower than the 18-wheelers people typically think of when we think of commercial vehicles, they can still cause serious, catastrophic injuries in the event of a crash.

Below are some of the common types of accidents involving garbage trucks of which we urge readers to be aware.

5 ways motorcyclists can protect themselves and prevent crashes

Operating any type of motor vehicle requires a certain amount of skill and responsibility. Drivers need to be properly trained and licensed, and they must understand that their actions directly affect their safety and the safety of everyone around them. This duty is the same whether you operate a massive commercial vehicle or a much smaller motorcycle.

If you do operate a motorcycle, though, you must also be aware of the fact that you are more vulnerable to catastrophic injuries in the event of a crash. Because of this, you can and should take some important precautions to protect yourself and prevent a crash.

Device to identify distracted driving could make road safer

There are a number of tools available to police, investigators and legal representatives that allow them to identify the causes of fatal car crashes. For instance, a Breathalyzer device can measure a driver’s level of intoxication and provide evidence that he or she was drunk at the time of an accident.

According to reports, a similar device that measures distraction could soon make its way into police toolkits. The device is called a "textalyzer," and it would allow police to determine whether a driver was using his or her phone in the seconds before a fatal crash. 

What to do when your child suffers a serious dog bite

Parents generally do whatever they can to prevent injuries to their children. In the case of a roaming or vicious dog, however, parents may not get a chance to intervene. A dog can attack suddenly, without provocation, and can cause serious damage to a child.

In addition to the penetrating trauma of the bite itself, the potential exists for serious psychological damage to a child attacked by a dog.
