Distracted driving may cause many teen car accidents

Teenagers in California and around the country may run a higher risk of dying in a motor vehicle accident than other age groups, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association. In 2015, traffic fatalities across all groups had the highest year-over-year percentage leap in 50 years, and the number of deaths increased for the first time since 2007. The upward trend is expected to continue in 2016 based on preliminary figures for the first six months of the year.

Underride guards can prevent truck accident fatalities

Motor vehicle accidents on California highways can be particularly dangerous when they involve large commercial trucks.

An underride truck accident occurs when a passenger car goes underneath a tractor-trailer from the back or side of the truck.

Safety regulators plan for zero traffic fatalities in 30 years

California road users might be relieved to learn that several regulatory agencies have formed a coalition to end the surge and reduce traffic fatalities to zero in just 30 years.

How can animal bites be prevented?

Pet owners in California often face large expenses when injuries result from their animals attacking people. According to the department of public health, $20.3 million in liabilities resulted from 527 California homeowners' insurance claims relating to animal bites in 2011. An animal owner bears responsibility for an animal bite no matter where the attack takes place. Because of the potential for high medical fees, everyone in a community should take steps to limit these injuries.
