How older drivers can avoid danger from other drivers

If you are an older driver, you may be tired of hearing jokes about having to hang up the keys soon despite your impeccable driving record.

Do long trucker commutes endanger motorists?

Sharing the road with commercial truckers is an inevitable part of life in modern America, but if you are like many motorists, you may do your best to avoid traveling near large trucks whenever possible.

As the holiday season approaches, many residents in California and elsewhere are making plans to attend work parties, go downtown with their friends or celebrate with family at their homes.

LiDAR to be included in autonomous vehicle parts

California has long been known as the land of the car and the emergence of self-driving cars is not likely to change that. What these vehicles might change or at least what many hope they will change is overall safety. One goal for autonomous vehicles is to reduce the number of car crashes that happen and therefore reduce the number of people hurt or killed in these senseless incidents. 

What should you do immediately after a car accident?
