'Coming up' in auto safety regulations - Part II

During our last post, we began a discussion about the latest efforts of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. We noted that because this agency is most directly tasked with ensuring that motorists remain safe on American streets that it is uniquely concerned with a host of auto safety issues. Keeping abreast of the NHTSA's efforts can be beneficial for motorists concerned about the latest trials and trends in auto safety.

'Coming up' in auto safety regulations - Part I

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may or may not be an agency that our readers are familiar with. The NHTSA is the federal agency most directly tasked with ensuring that automobiles on American roads are safe and that fatal auto accidents are prevented when possible. Although some of our readers may have never heard of the NHTSA before, this agency likely makes a host of decisions on an annual basis that directly impact our readers' lives and their travel-related safety.

JAMA Pediatrics: sports concussions at least as common at practice

Several years ago, healthcare researchers began to suspect that people who suffer a series of concussions might be at just as much risk for long-term cognitive problems as those who suffer serious, traumatic brain injuries.

The benefits of purchasing more than minimum insurance coverage

When you think about auto insurance, what emotion does that thought inspire? Does it make you frustrated? Tired? Does it even make you sad that you spend all that money on "maybe"? Auto insurance is certainly not a "fun" purchase. But it is absolutely a necessary one. Not only does the law require you to have current auto insurance in order to legally operate your vehicle, this kind of insurance protects you from potential financial ruin in the wake of an accident.

Why minimum trucking insurance should matter to you

Most of the time, you likely have little reason to be concerned with the insurance needs of individuals outside your own family. However, there are instances in which the insurance minimums and rates paid by others may directly impact you. For example, if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, the kind of insurance that other drivers involved in the crash have access to may impact the amount of compensation that you receive as a result of the accident.

What are the cellphone rules for drivers in West Virginia?

Car accidents happen for a wide variety of reasons, but one of the most infuriating causes of a car accident is texting while driving. Such a blatant disregard for other people's safety -- and for the task at hand -- is just plain stupid, let alone a perfect way to make yourself liable for any accident that you may be involved in. That's why many states were quick to ban texting while driving and cellphone use while driving in the years that followed the cellphone boom.

Minor auto accidents can still have big impacts

Pretty much everyone understands that major car accidents can have very big impacts on those involved. However, people may be prone to underestimating the impacts of minor car accidents. Some may assume that a car accident that is relatively minor couldn't possibly have any significant impacts.
