Preparing for winter driving

The Federal Highway Administration states that 22 percent of all accidents are weather-related; that's nearly 1.3 million out of 5.7 million crashes every year. Many drivers in California have to face heavy snows, freezing rains, and floods in the winter, which means an increased risk for car crashes during this most dangerous of seasons.

Study links people with ADHD to higher risk of car accidents

Driving vehicles requires people to adopt safe behaviors and successfully combine cognitive, motor and visual skills. Among people in California diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, their tendency to be easily distracted has appeared to impact their driving abilities according to multiple studies. The defining characteristics of ADHD include impulsiveness, hyperactivity and difficulty paying attention.

Wildlife collisions increase with end of daylight saving time

Most wild animals are active when it's dark, so they especially become a danger to drivers when the days get shorter. The autumn season also complicates matters as bears will be prowling around for food before hibernation, and deer will be mating. Drivers in California should know that there are precautions they can take to avoid accidents with wildlife.

Self-driving vehicle regulations meet roadblock

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has said that it needs further instructions on how to revise current auto safety regulations for self-driving vehicles. It is also asking for comments on whether it should eliminate certain regulations altogether. This could affect how soon drivers in California and across the U.S. can get self-driving vehicles.
