Can Your Old Car Learn These New Safety Tricks?

Cars are flooding the market with safety features aimed at correcting mistakes or alerting the driver to hazards on the road. As autonomous driving becomes a closer reality, many of the features used to keep the car within its own lane or detect other surrounding objects can be used to help drivers practice safer driving techniques. However, many older vehicles don't have these life-saving features, forcing many car owners to decide between their safety and spending their savings on a newer and safer vehicle. Fortunately, those choices can be made with less financial pressure as companies are producing aftermarket safety kits.

Beloved Former Los Angeles Laker Suspected of DUI

Former Laker, Derek Fisher, was arrested on Sunday June 4th on suspicion of a DUI accident after flipping an SUV on highway 101. While no other parties seem to be involved in the accident, the car was flipped over onto its roof when CHP had arrived. Thankfully, neither Fisher nor Govan, Fisher's girlfriend and star of the show, "Basketball wives," were injured in the accident. California Highway patrol claims that Fisher was under the influence at the time of the accident. Interesting to note is that the totaled vehicle was registered to Matt Barnes, Ex-husband to Govan and former teammate of Derek Fisher. Matt Barnes and Derek Fisher were in an altercation when Govan and Barnes were separated and still married.

The Cost of Repairing Car Safety Tech After An Accident

What cases fall under personal injury?

If you have an accident or get injured in California, you may have a case under personal injury law. Personal injury, according to the American Bar Association, is any injury caused to you or damage caused to your property due to someone else’s negligence. In some cases, negligence does not have to be proven to win a personal injury case. It really depends on the situation.

What are the different forms of distracted driving?

For years, it seemed as though the greatest threat that you faced on Los Angeles roads was from drunk drivers. With the advent of cell phone technology, an entirely new class of dangerous motorist was introduced: the distracted driver.
