Younger drivers put others in harm's way

Ideally, teen motorists in California will have at least 100 hours of supervised driving time before they drive on their own. Since younger drivers lack experience behind the wheel, they are more likely to be involved in deadly crashes. When a teen driver is in a vehicle with other teen passengers, the fatality risks increase even higher.

Limo involved in deadly crash had been cited for faulty brakes

California readers may have heard about the horrific limousine crash that killed 20 people in upstate New York on Oct. 6. Now, media outlets are reporting that the vehicle involved in the deadly accident had been cited for brake failures by the State Department of Transportation.

Drivers on California roads are likely to overestimate the capabilities of their vehicles' safety features, according to research conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. The AAA study found that drivers think blind spot monitoring and other safety technologies are more advanced than they are. It may indicate that more driver education is necessary before American drivers are ready to adopt self-driving and other motor vehicle technology.
