Ride accidents can lead to liability

Amusement park enthusiasts love the thrills and adrenaline rushes that come with riding rides. It’s what keeps fans coming back to Six Flags Over Texas and the Texas State Fair year after year.

How older drivers can avoid accidents

It is an inescapable fact that our driving public includes more older drivers than in past decades. According the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers over age 65 made up 16 percent of the driving public in 2011, which is up from 15 percent from 2002. Because of this, there ostensibly will be more vulnerable drivers on the road for a considerable time to come.

Not all crash avoidance systems reliable, says IIHS

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducted the first-ever tests of crash avoidance systems; mechanisms that are touted for their ability to help drivers avoid objects (and other vehicles) that they may not initially see. Essentially, these systems incorporate lasers and on-board radar to measure the speed and distance of nearby objects and alert the driver to hazards that may lie ahead.
