Driving while buzzed: Marijuana and safety

California is poised to legalize marijuana in a few days, with polls showing a strong majority favoring Proposition 64. So it's time to ponder the impact of legalization on highway safety.

Motorcyclist killed in California accident

Authorities say that a 22-year-old man was killed when a Nissan Pathfinder turned left into the path of his motorcycle at about 8:20 p.m. on July 17. The crash took place 3400 block of Santa Maria Way in Orcutt when the motorcycle traveling westbound collided with the vehicle.

Tips for motorcycle safety

There are a number of myths about motorcycle safety that cyclists in California should be familiar with. For example, leather is not just for fashion. It helps prevent scrapes and cuts in an accident. That full-faced helmets restrict visibility is another myth. The Department of Transportation requires all such helmets to be constructed so that peripheral vision is unaffected. Furthermore, unlike open-face helmets, they protect from bugs, weather and other distractions that may also be impediments to safety.

Fatal accident shuts down both sides of highway

On April 5, the California Highway Patrol reported a fatal motorcycle accident in Walnut Creek. The crash took place near the North Main Street off-ramp on Interstate 680 shortly before 12:41 p.m. A motorcyclist was ejected from a motorcycle and thrown from one side of the highway to the other after colliding with a vehicle.

Most common type of motorcycle wreck in 2014? Single-vehicle

If you're like most motorcyclists, you've probably been told to take special care at intersections, because drivers often don't notice motorcycles when they make turns. Another hazard is following or being followed by passenger vehicles, because drivers often don't understand how quickly bikes can stop -- or they themselves stop on a dime without any warning.

With self-driving Google cars, speed gets traded for safety

Most Californians are well aware of Google's project to develop fully autonomous vehicles. While many universities and private companies are working on perfecting the technology of self-driving cars, Google's efforts are especially noticeable, as their vehicles have already logged more than 1 million miles of test driving, most of which were on California roads.
