The future bodes well for older drivers

For years, safety analysts feared that as the baby boomer population grew across the U.S., the number of auto accidents involving older drivers would increase. However, with the advent of crash avoidance technologies such as lane integrity systems, backup cameras and emergency braking systems, it is becoming less likely that senior citizens will be involved in car crashes.

GM issues recall to correct ignition switch problem

General Motors is poised to recall more than 700,000 vehicles due to faulty ignition switches that can shut off a car and put drivers (and passengers) in dangerous positions. According to a recent USA Today report, the American automaker is recalling a number of Chevy Cobalts built between 2005 and 2007, as well as 2007 Pontiac G5s built in North America. Essentially, the ignition can be compromised by heavy key rings that can pull car keys out of the ignition and cause the car the stop suddenly.

Firefighter killed in accident on icy overpass

A Dallas firefighter was killed on Monday night after being knocked from an icy overpass after stopping to help a stranded motorist. WFAA.com reports that the firefighter (who was responding to another accident) was struck by another vehicle that had lost control and crashed into a stopped car and then spun into him. The firefighter fell more than 50 feet to the highway below.

Nine-year high for recalled vehicles

At last month’s Detroit Auto Show, many automakers touted their innovations in fuel efficiency and safety. New offerings and prototypes included cars that would run on electric fuel cells (partially and fully) as well as cars that could detect hazards and apply the brakes before a human driver could.  Clearly, the future of safety innovations is bright.
