Ad campaign aims to educate California teen drivers

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced recently that it would be partnering with the Ad Council on a PSA related to underage drunk driving. The PSA was created as part of National Teen Driver Safety Week and aims to show teenagers that drinking and driving can lead to permanent consequences. Footage for the commercial was shot entirely on an iPhone and portrays drunk driving as a party foul.

The consequences of running a red light

Running a red light is a major safety risk at intersections in California and across the rest of the country. The Traffic Safety Facts 2008 Report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that drivers who run red lights caused 762 deaths in that year. Additionally, it is estimated that red-light runners cause about 165,000 injuries every year.

The statistical risks of road travel

Thousands of people are killed or injured on the roads of California annually, but the chances of being involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident have fallen sharply in recent years. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals that the number of fatal auto accidents has been declining since 1985, and the number of people killed on the nation's roads fell by about a third between 2011 and 2014.

Autonomous vehicles and the question of liability

As California residents may know, self-driving features are being added to motor vehicles by some companies, including Mercedes, Tesla and Google. Others are working on their own versions of autonomous cars. A question has arisen in who carries responsibility if one of these vehicles is involved in an accident.

Claiming wrongful death for a fatal crash

California residents might be interested in understanding more about why Paul Walker's daughter has filed a lawsuit against Porsche over the late actor's sudden death in a car accident in 2013. Walker died after the 2004 Carrera GT he was a passenger in crashed into a concrete lamppost. Investigators believe the vehicle was traveling up to 94 mph in an area with a 45 mph speed limit.

Rabies awareness campaign aims to educate about the deadly virus

People who live in California may have less risk of contacting rabies than those in some other parts of the world, but rabies is a possibility for anyone who comes in contact with animals. Since 2007, Sept. 28th has been designated as World Rabies Day to raise awareness about this deadly disease.
