Self-driving car software would be the driver, NHTSA says

California residents share the roads with many other drivers, but in the future, cars without drivers may be making up part of the traffic. Google's driverless car passed another hurdle in its campaign for approval when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration decided that if and when driverless cars are on the roads, the software that controls them would be considered to be the 'driver." The news was given to Google on Feb. 4 via a letter from the NHTSA.

Volvo vows fatal injuries in its vehicles by 2020

Volvo has a reputation for using the number of serious injuries and deaths that occur when its customers drive its vehicles to make them safer. California Volvo owners might be happy to learn that the automaker has promised that, by 2020, they will not suffer serious injuries or deaths in its vehicles.

Driverless cars struggle among lawbreaking drivers

As companies like Google Inc. and General Motors Corp. develop self-driving robotic cars, California has proposed rules to govern autonomous vehicles on public roads. Because of studies that show an accident rate among driverless cars double that of human-operated vehicles, the state has drafted rules requiring that a human be in a robot-operated car and be ready to take over operation at all times.

Car collision involving Caitlyn Jenner sparks second lawsuit

California car accidents can occur for a multitude of reasons, and no one is immune from the potential of being involved in a crash. In some of these accidents, a famous or prominent person might be involved. A February accident involving the reality television show personality and former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner resulted in the death of a woman and five other people suffering injuries.

Current vehicle safety and possible improvements

While continual strides are being made to make driving safer, car accidents in California and around the country still pose significant risks as 32,719 traffic accident fatalities occurred in 2013 nationwide. This makes automobile travel one of the more dangerous parts of life, but some things can make a difference when it comes to road safety.

AAA study looks into drowsy driving

People in California who fall asleep at the wheel are not in a small minority. According to a new AAA survey, about 43 percent of licensed U.S. drivers answered 'yes" when they were asked whether they had ever fallen asleep while driving. About 31 percent of drivers who were surveyed said that they had struggled to stay awake while they were driving sometime during the previous month.
