Crash during test drive kills car salesman

A California car salesman was killed in a crash during a test drive in Ontario on February 23. The driver was suspected of being under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash. According to police, a 28-year-old man lost control of the Corvette he was test driving, and then slammed into a tree a few blocks from the car dealership. Witnesses told the media that the car was traveling as fast as 70 mph before the crash. The salesman, a 43-year-old man, was taken to a hospital in critical condition and later died from his injuries.

Crash prevention systems do make a difference on accident rates

Crash prevention technology really works, according to one study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Rear-end accidents were reduced by around 40 percent with automatic braking technology while forward collision warning systems helped stop 23 percent of such accidents. California residents may be interested in how these figures were derived.

Self-driving cars and federal regulations

As the development of self-driving vehicles continues, one concern that has been brought up is who or what can be considered a driver. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in a letter to California-based Google, has addressed this issue by declaring that the software that controls the company's self-driving cars can be considered a driver under federal regulations.

Statistics show a rise in the number of traffic fatalities

California residents who are concerned about safety on the nation's roadways may be interested in knowing about a report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on that topic. According to the NHTSA, the estimated number of traffic deaths in the U.S. recorded during the first nine months of 2015 suggest that the number is rising following years of steady decline. Fatalities increased by more than 9 percent over the comparable 2014 period.
