While it is true that advanced driver assistance systems can help prevent accidents, they cannot do so unless the driver is fully engaged in driving. Unfortunately, many seem to think that ADAS make a car virtually self-driving when this is not the case. This misunderstanding, which can be seen in Pennsylvania and across the U.S., was the subject of a study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
During the delivery process, infants may suffer an injury to their clavicle, or collarbone. Clavicle fractures are among the most common birth injuries, so parents in Pennsylvania will want to know how it occurs and how it can be treated.
Commercial trucks and passenger vehicles routinely share the road in Pennsylvania and most other states. While truck drivers must remember to drive in a safe manner, they say that passenger drivers need to do the same. A contest was held by Teletrac Navman to solicit safety tips from truck drivers that could help passenger vehicle drivers. One of those tips was to make lane changes in a timely manner.
In Pennsylvania, as anywhere else, it is usually harder to prepare a truck accident case than a car accident case, and there are five good reasons for this. First, any case becomes complex the more severe the injuries are. Trucks, being heavier and having a longer stopping distance, crash more forcefully into other vehicles, causing catastrophic injuries and even death.
A federal government report has called the Department of Transportation (DOT) to do more to research and prevent truck underride accidents. This report comes out shortly after lawmakers introduced a piece of legislation to require truck manufacturers to include rear, side and front guards to their vehicles. The legislation, titled Stop Underrides Act, is currently under consideration.
