Driver crashes car into light pole, injures pedestrians

Driving is such a common element of our everyday lives that it's easy to forget just how dangerous it can be to get behind the wheel of a vehicle. One driver learned this the hard way recently when he began exhibiting erratic behavior and crashing his car into two other vehicles before ultimately colliding with a the concrete base of a light pole. The impact with the light pole sent debris flying, some of which struck nearby pedestrians.

Large trucks make roads significantly more dangerous

The freeways and interstates in California are a sprawling network of lane after lane of traffic, crammed with vehicles of many kinds all in a hurry to get where they are going. It doesn't take above-average insight to know that when it comes to car accidents, some of the most dangerous kinds of accident can be those that involve large commercial trucks. These mechanical behemoths are responsible for thousands of fatalities each year, and California is not immune to these dangers.

Be aware of recalls that may affect your motorcycle safety

Being a motorcyclist is a singular feeling. On a motorcycle, it is freeing and immediate, as you cruise across roadways in a personal relationship with the road and the vehicle that other forms of transportation struggle to match. At the same time, every motorcyclist has in the back of his or her mind, "What if something goes wrong? What if a car doesn't see me? What if there's a patch of gravel in a turn?" These fears are reasonable, because when motorcycling goes wrong, it often goes horrifically wrong.

Are SUVs getting safer?

You may remember a national television and print campaign several years back that was created to raise awareness, especially among younger drivers, of the dangers of driving an SUV. The campaign featured a person riding a creature that resembled a cross between an SUV and a bull in a bull riding competition. The campaign made the point that SUVs are inherently more prone than other styles of vehicles to rolling over in accidents or difficult handling situations, making them more dangerous to inexperienced drivers. Here in 2016, the state of SUV safety has greatly improved.
