General Motors may already be parsing new recall decisions

The record number of automotive recalls last year affected millions of Americans across the country, including here in California. While numerous companies issued recalls, the most prominent example of automotive defects last year was provided by General Motors. Revelations that GM knew about and covered up its deadly ignition-switch defect for more than a decade have caused many Americans to drop any GM brand loyalty they may have had.

General Motors has assured both the government and the public that its recall policies and practices will be much improved going forward. Yet according to recent news reports, GM again seems to be prioritizing profits over safety.

Congressman wants railroad crossings investigated

In our last two posts, we discussed concern over the recent increase in the number of pedestrians and bicyclists being hit by commuter trains in California.

Because it is believed that many of the accident victims were distracted by cellphones and other gadgets when they were hit, Sacramento Regional Transit recently launched a campaign warning pedestrians, cyclists and drivers to pay closer attention around the tracks.

See Tracks? Think Train! RT launches new safety campaign (2 of 2)

Welcome back. As we discussed in our last post, safety officials are concerned about the rising number of pedestrians and bicyclists that are being hit by commuter trains in California, especially in the Sacramento area.

Because it is believed that distraction contributed to many of these incidents, the Sacramento Regional Transit launched a campaign this month that attempts to warn pedestrians, cyclists and drivers to pay attention instead of being focused on their cellphones and other distractions.

See Tracks? Think Train! RT launches new safety campaign (1 of 2)

California safety officials are warning that there is a problem with distracted drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists being hit by commuter trains in Sacramento and many other parts of the state.

According to the rail safety group Operation Lifesaver, there were 154 people hit by trains in California last year, resulting in 101 deaths and 53 injuries.

David Crosby strikes and injures a jogger in California

David Crosby, who rose to fame as part of the group Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, was involved in an accident in California. While driving his car, he ran into a man who had gone out for a jog. The incident happened in Santa Ynez, California, and Crosby was close to his home at the time.

According to the California Highway Patrol, speed was not a factor in the crash. Though the speed limit was 55, the musician was only going about 50 miles per hour.

Graco faces major fines for delaying car seat recall

You may remember Graco’s massive recall last year of nearly 2 million car seats because of a potentially defective buckle that could make it difficult for a child to be removed from his or her seat in an emergency situation. If not, we discussed it in this post.

At first, the global child-products maker fought regulators on the issue, claiming that the buckles didn’t need to be recalled. But Graco finally gave in to regulators’ demands to remedy the situation and what resulted was the largest ever recall of car seats.

Cellphones not the only cause of distracted driving

A new study suggests that while teen drivers understand the dangerous distraction that using a cellphone to talk or text while driving poses, they might need more reminders about other forms of distractions while driving.

The study was discussed at the recent Pacific Northwest Transportation Consortium, which included both educators and transportation professionals from five universities.

CHP hopes to improve safety on Highways 74 and 243

Highways 74 and 243 in the Coachella Valley are known for being dangerous.

Highway 74, also called the Palms to Pines Highway, is a winding 50-mile stretch of road that weaves through the Santa Rosa Mountains. At times, drivers follow a narrow road at the edge of the mountain.

The truth about food poisoning: Most common culprits

Food poisoning is the topic of the week on our blog, and if you have read our past two posts, you know that food-borne illnesses can wreak havoc on a person’s life for a lot longer than a week.

In fact, bacteria such as E. coli can end up causing life-threatening problems years after a person has seemingly recovered from the infection.

Different trends for car and bicycle accident fatalities

In recent years, more and more people who are involved in California car accidents have been surviving thanks to safety innovations and medical care, and the fatality rate has been falling. However, cars are not the only vehicles on the roads, and bike accident fatalities have actually been trending entirely in the opposite direction. If anything, the roads have grown more dangerous for bikers since 2009.

The stats kept by the Department of Transportation show that over 700 cyclists passed away after accidents with cars and other motor vehicles in 2009. In California, things were especially bad. While half of the deaths were spread out over the other 49 U.S. states, just about half of them took place in California.
