Motorcycle accident lawsuit hinges on antilock brake icon

In April 2008, a husband and wife were riding on their motorcycle on a California highway when traffic suddenly slowed. Traveling at 65 miles per hour, the husband was unable to stop the motorcycle in time. The rear wheel of the bike locked, and the wife was thrown more than 30 feet forward onto the pavement.

NTSB recommends full ban of cell phone use behind the wheel

At any given moment in 2010, about one in every 100 drivers on the road in California and across the U.S. was using their cell phone to text, send an email, or surf the Internet. This marked a staggering 50 percent increase over the previous year's cell phone use behind the wheel. As a result, federal lawmakers are working to deter and hopefully forbid any and all cell phone use while driving.

California could save 133 lives with stricter teen driving laws

Although every state has some form of graduated licensing laws for teenage drivers, a new report indicates that stricter laws could save 2,000 lives if implemented universally throughout the country. However, a youth rights association is opposing the move toward stricter laws for teen drivers, stating that such limitations are discriminatory to members of that age group.

Wrong-way driving a growing cause of California accidents

Whether it is a result of a driver operating under the influence of alcohol or an honest mistake by the driver, the number of car accidents caused by wrong-way driving is on the rise in California and throughout the United States.

California police plan events for Teen Driver Safety Week

In honor of the third annual National Teen Driver Safety Week, which is taking place this week in California and throughout the country, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) has planned several events to encourage teenagers and their parents to take traffic safety seriously. According to the CHP, auto accidents are the leading cause of death in the U.S. for drivers between the ages of 15 and 20, and teenage drivers are involved in three times as many deadly car crashes than all other drivers.

California governor vetoes ski helmet law

Last year, then-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill that required skiers and snowboarders under the age of 18 to wear a helmet on the slopes. Now, in what feels like a case of déjà vu, Governor Jerry Brown has again vetoed a ski helmet bill. There is one main difference between the two vetoes, however: while Governor Schwarzenegger supported ski helmets, he struck down the bill because it included various other ski resort regulations. Governor Brown, on the other hand, justified his veto with an argument that parents, not the state, should make the decisions that affect their children.

California legislature passes ski helmet law

Earlier this week, the California state legislature passed a bill that requires all skiers and snowboarders under the age of 18 to wear helmets while on the ski slopes. If the law is signed by California Governor Jerry Brown, the state will become the most restrictive, in terms of requirements for both skiers and ski resorts, of any state in the country.

Google self-driving car crashes - with a person behind the wheel

In recent months, California company Google Inc. has been publicizing its latest development: a car that can drive itself. And although we are likely years away from the Google self-driving car becoming a common fixture on our freeways, it is exciting to see the latest developments in technology come to life, which is why a recent accident report involving the self-driving car could spell trouble for the company and its innovation.

California woman sues for wrongful death - of dog

Most pet owners consider their beloved cat, dog, or other animal to be a member of the family, much more than just a belonging or a piece of property. As such, we would do anything to protect our pets, and the mere thought of them being harmed or feeling any pain is difficult to take.

Don't let distracted driving derail your road trip

With the onset of August, many California families are looking for ways to squeeze in one more summer adventure before the kids head back to school. One relatively cost-effective way to take that last family vacation is by heading out on a cross-country road trip. For example, California parents could consider the historical Route 66, a road trip that stretches from California to Chicago, covering eight states between.
