Common risks associated with motor vehicle crashes

Motor vehicle accidents contribute to more than 2 million injuries each year according to the CDC. In order to avoid being another statistic, drivers in California are encouraged to consider the common risks associated with motor vehicle crashes. These include texting while behind the wheel and being distracted or drowsy while driving. Ongoing research into these risk factors has improved the understanding of the true impact of distractions on accidents and injuries.

FMCSA announces revised safety program parameters

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's Compliance, Safety and Accountability program is designed to identify unsafe trucking companies in California and around the country, but trade groups say that the data used by the government watchdog is unreliable and the safety scores assigned to truck operators are misleading. Congress took action in 2015 by including a provision requiring the FMCSA to revise the CSA program in the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, and a report published on July 4 reveals how the agency plans to comply with this requirement.

What to watch out for if you’re sharing the road with a truck

There is a high risk of injury when an accident occurs involving large commercial trucks. For that reason, truck drivers know that handling their vehicle properly is imperative to their own safety and the safety of others. However, there are certain things that are outside of a truck driver’s control.

Travelers: distracted driving is rife during the summer

Most California motorists are aware that distracted driving is widespread, especially with new technologies stealing away people's attention. What they may not know is that it becomes an even greater issue during the summertime. During its newly launched Every Second Matters™ event, which took place on June 15 on Capitol Hill, the Travelers Institute brought this up and urged safe driving for all.

The future of auto insurance may not be so bleak

As California motorists transition into using driverless cars, it may not necessarily mean the end of the auto insurance industry. Instead, the industry will likely develop new products and otherwise adapt to new driving and vehicle ownership trends. While one survey speculated that car insurance companies could lose up to 80 percent of their business by 2040, recent autonomous technology accidents have shown that there will still likely be a need for coverage.
