Fatigue, distracted driving and trucking accidents

Fatigue and distraction are major contributing factors for many trucking accidents in California. Nationwide, nearly 100,000 crashes are believed to be caused by fatigue alone each year. Trucking companies are taking measures to reduce the number of accidents caused by fatigue and distraction with new technology.

Teen drivers pose greater risk without adult passengers

New drivers may worry others on the road in California as teens rarely have a reputation for safe driving. Only some of that is due to recklessness, however. Teens are less experienced drivers who have had relatively little time on the road and may not be skilled at responding to quick-moving situations or emergencies. This is reflected in the findings of recent research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, which was released in time for National Teen Driver Safety Week.

Collision avoidance features can make trucks safer

Large trucks were involved in accidents that killed 4,300 people in 2016. That was a 28 percent increase from 2009, and it has led to calls to make these vehicles safer. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, the accidents that led to the deaths could have been prevented or mitigated with collision avoidance technology. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has said that it is testing such technology, and it could make California highways safer.

New frightening statistics for male bicyclists and big cities

With so much land to explore, California is one of the top destinations for bicyclists in the nation. It has all types of terrain ranging from mountains, forests and big cities that have a quality almost unrivaled to them by other states. With the state’s handheld ban on cell-phones, they should have little to worry about when it comes to cycling on the road.

Good news and bad news from NHTSA

The good news from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is that the overall number of 2017 car crash fatalities in the nation decreased to 37,133 from 37,806 the previous year. This works out to a 1.8 percent decline in fatal accidents on roadways throughout California and the rest of the country. The largest declines were among bicyclist-related accidents at 8.1 percent and motorcyclist-related accidents at 3.1 percent. Deaths from passenger vehicle crashes decreased by 1.4 percent.
