HOW TECHNOLOGY IS MAKING DRIVING SAFER

car technologies that keep driving safe

It wasn’t all that long ago that the primary safety feature you could find in the most advanced cars on the road consisted of a seat belt that stretched across your lap. Then a few models began offering exotic features such as antilock brakes and dual front airbags (which didn’t become mandatory for all passenger vehicles in the United States until 1998). We now take those life-saving innovations for granted. But in the last few years, a wave of startling, risk-reducing features have been introduced in the auto world; although most of them are not yet standard on all vehicles, they’re...

DO I NEED UNINSURED MOTORIST COVERAGE?

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Driving defensively is something that students learn when they first take the wheel. You have to not only pay attention to your own driving, you have to anticipate the actions of other drivers and plan accordingly, giving yourself enough time and distance to react properly. The same holds true when it comes to purchasing auto insurance. Many motorists think they’re adequately covered if they have insurance that protects them in the event that they’re at fault in an accident. But if you really want to protect yourself and your assets from an economic crash, you have to anticipate the crazy things...

Common as they are, blind-spot accidents are also highly preventable. Traffic gurus say that exercising just a little extra preparation, awareness and caution could save the motoring public considerable expense...

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO AFTER A TRUCK ACCIDENT

Traffic accidents can range from minor scrapes to catastrophic events that cause serious property damage and life-altering injuries. Until the damage can be properly assessed, it’s advisable to treat all on-the-road accidents very seriously. That’s particularly true if one of the vehicles involved happens to be a tractor-trailer or large commercial truck. It’s a simple matter of physics. Big rigs are 20-30 times heavier than passenger cars, with much greater ground clearance, and the occupants of the smaller vehicle tend to suffer greater injuries in any collision between the two. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation data, 3,986 people died...

As we drive out of the city and onto major trucking highways in Colorado such as Interstate 25, it is important to remember we are sharing the road with semi-trucks and driving around them requires a new set of precautions.
