What Google is learning from testing its self-driving cars

Over the past several years, corporate giant Google has been testing a small fleet of vehicles that are self-operating. These vehicles have been designed in ways that Google hopes will eventually lead to a significantly diminished number of car accidents occurring on U.S. roads annually and reduced traffic congestion.

Common questions about common carriers

We share the roads every day with school and tour buses, taxis and trucks. While operators of these vehicles are expected to comply with the very same rules of the road as other motorists, they actually have a greater obligation to drive safely. This is because they fall under a specific category of vehicles called "common carriers."

Should the NHTSA's authority be transferred to the NTSB?

We have previously written about many efforts undertaken by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on behalf of American travelers. This federal agency is directly tasked with preventing auto accidents when possible and improving auto safety generally. The NHTSA has initiated many valuable programs, including those aimed at curbing distracted driving practices, and many valuable investigations into defective auto parts. These efforts have almost certainly saved American lives.

Federal agencies aiming to reduce drowsy driving prevalence

Two federal agencies are working together to better ensure that American travelers remain safe while they navigate the nation’s roadways. One of the most pressing concerns affecting roadway safety today is drowsy driving. When overworked or generally overtired Americans get behind the wheel, they place themselves and everyone around them in a state of danger.

Legal support can be crucial after a motorcycle accident

Motorcycle accidents are among the most catastrophic motor vehicle accidents on the road. In many cases, a motorcyclist suffers several different types of injuries, from abrasions and broken bones to brain damage and paralysis. In the most tragic collisions, the rider can be killed.

How loved ones can help to ensure that patients remain safe

When it comes to healthcare, doctors are the experts. But when it comes to patients, there are no better experts than patients themselves and their families. Therefore, it stands to reason that doctors and hospitals could improve care by seeking input and feedback from those they treat.

How do California hospitals rank in regards to patient safety?

The Golden State is one of the top ten largest economies in the world. It boasts incredible beaches, picturesque mountains, booming industry and a lively political atmosphere. There are any number of reasons why millions upon millions of people live in California and why an untold number of additional people wish that they did. However, not every aspect of life in California is rosy, even for the most educated, affluent and cultured residents of the state.
