In our last post, we discussed the many safety hazards that come along with fall driving. From the sun’s intense glare to more traffic on the roads to foggy mornings, fall can be a very dangerous time of year to drive.
The fall season is officially upon us in California and the rest of the United States, even though the warm temperatures might feel a lot like summer.
Earlier this week, we wrote about a tragic accident in Roseville, California, last month in which a vehicle that was in park rolled over the driver as she was unloading something out of the back seat.
Have you ever been driving down the freeway only to glance at the car next to you and see the driver with his eyes on his cellphone instead of the road? It’s not a very comforting feeling, is it?
Technology has changed the way we go about life in many ways, including the way we find a ride. Uber is a California-based ridesharing company that allows people to use a smartphone app to connect with drivers in their area who are willing to give them a lift using their private vehicles. The smartphone app developed into a modern-day taxi cab service that is now available in most areas of the country.
Every year, people across the U.S. eagerly await the publication of various reports ranking everything from graduate schools and hospitals to cars and retirement destinations. While this is certainly understandable, there is one report that perhaps doesn't receive quite as much press, but which provides a very comprehensive look at traffic safety here in the U.S.
The private transportation industry has undergone something of a dramatic transformation over the last several years thanks to the advent of ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft. Gone are the days of arranging a ride in advance or waiting for a taxi company to send a vehicle your way, and in are the days of instantly locating a ride with just a few swipes of your finger.
Investigators are still looking into the deadly chain-reaction crash that occurred along the 60 Freeway just recently. Some of our Placer County readers may have heard about the crash that injured at least 13 people and killed a 5-year-old girl. And depending on what investigators find out about the crash, it's possible that the accident victims may be entitled to compensation.
It may sound like science fiction, but several tech-savvy individuals insist that they can not only predict when and where an accident may take place, but get that information to emergency services before the crash even happens. They say with the help of their analytics software, this could become a reality across the nation.
