It’s Summertime: Drive Safely

Summer is here and with it comes warm summer days, a new free-spirited attitude and, of course, driving vacations. Even if simply driving around town, the happiness of summer has a tendency to cause more distractions than normal. We should be urged to continue to drive safely, and especially be on a closer lookout for children this time of year though. As schools are out, more children will be out roaming the streets–with or without their parents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) collects data throughout the year and has found that: “In 2009, 4,092 pedestrians were killed…

New Rules Seek to Limit Risk of Distracted Driving

Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced new guidelines designed to limit the risk of distracted driving by preventing the operation of infotainment systems while cars are moving. Specifically, drivers would be unable to access email, browse the internet, enter an address into a navigation system, enter a phone number or see more than 30 characters of an incoming message unless the car is stopped and out of gear. The newly proposed guidelines come at a time when many auto manufacturers are seeking to include infotainment systems – built-in electronic systems designed to allow drivers to access the…

Fatal Crash by UCSF Shuttle Driver: Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is one of my main topics lately on this blog for a reason.  Distracted driving is the cause of many automobile collisions, including fatal collisions.  In a recent post last month, I was happy to learn that due to concerns about distracted driving the NTSB recommends a ban on personal devices.  The NTSB has a focus on safety and that focus does not seem to be watered down by politics or inconvenience to cell phone users. Should all cell phone use be banned, even hands free cell phone use? This is an interesting debate and I would…

White Van Sought Hit-and-Run of San Francisco School Bus

Police are still looking for a white van that was involved in a hit-and-run with a school bus in San Francisco yesterday afternoon, Wednesday, January 18th at around 2:50 p.m. near Harrison and Cesar Chavez streets. If you have information regarding this hit-and-run please immediately contact the San Francisco Police Department. The school bus was carrying 20 children. Luckily, no one was injured.  The other vehicle, a white van, drove off after the collision and the driver has not been found, according to CHP Officer Kevin Bartlett. I regard hit-and-run drivers as a special kind of criminal. To negligently hit…

NTSB Expresses Concerns About Distracted Driving

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recommends a ban on all personal electronic devices while driving.  Despite the new fines imposed in California for texting-while-driving from a cell phone while driving an automobile, I still hear about fatal accidents and serious personal injuries which result from this most obvious form of distracted driving.  I am supportive of NTSB’s recent decision to recommend a national ban on the usage of all personal electronic devices while driving a motor vehicle.  NTSB bases its decision on findings from various national statistics on distracted driving, as I have also discussed in the past. …
