Do you want someone to evaluate how safely you drive?

It seems that our possessions are closer than ever to “understanding” us. Remote activators can let us know where we lost our keys, fitness trackers measure a host of our bodies’ movements and processes and some smartphones even refuse to operate for anyone other than the individual whose thumbprint it recognizes. If smart technology could not only help us find our keys and activate our phones but also make us safer, wouldn’t that be a development worth exploring?

The evolution of auto recall rates

Over the past several years, numerous media outlets have reported that much of the American public is suffering from a phenomenon referred to as recall fatigue. The concept of recall fatigue is rooted in the idea that when an overwhelming number of recalls is publicized, the public becomes overloaded with information and ultimately stops responding to recalls with any sense of urgency. It is important to understand this phenomenon in order to properly address it.

Commercial vehicle accident rates continue to rise - Part II

In our last post, we began a discussion of the frustrating fact that it is not always possible to make steady progress towards the goal of ensuring that the American public remains safe while on the road. We mentioned that one factor complicating motor vehicle safety trends is the unfortunate rollback of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s revised hours of service requirement. This requirement was designed to reduce truck driver fatigue and to reduce the prevalence of fatigue-related truck accidents.

Commercial vehicle accident rates continue to rise - Part I

It can be truly discouraging when progress is not being made in regards to important issues. Americans expect our lawmakers, medical researchers, scientists, educators and a host of other professionals to make steady progress towards improving the common good. And perhaps there is no greater expectation of progress than that placed upon safety regulators. When ensuring the safety of the public is a safety agency’s primary task, Americans expect steady progress towards that goal.

Thinking about personal alcohol breath tests: Part II

In our last post, we began a discussion about personal alcohol breath tests. We noted that it is surprisingly easy for a responsible motorist to unintentionally drive while intoxicated. We also noted that if more Americans purchased and regularly used personal alcohol breath tests that the rates of DUI arrests and drunk driving accidents would likely drop significantly. This issue is particularly pressing given the fact that approximately 12,000 individuals perish annually as a result of drunk driving accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Thinking about personal alcohol breath tests: Part I

Most Americans are acutely aware of how dangerous drunk driving can be. It is very rare that anyone is so reckless that he or she knowingly and intentionally gets behind the wheel while obviously drunk. More common is the scenario in which an ordinarily responsible adult believes himself or herself to be sober enough to drive safely and is ultimately surprised to learn that he or she is not quite sober enough to be considered “legally drunk.”
