California has third highest number of senior crash deaths

California has the third-highest number of fatal accidents involving senior drivers in the U.S., according to a new study by TheSeniorList.com. The purpose of the study, which used data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, was to determine which states have the worst senior drivers.

Study highlights lack of female safety data

A study published in Traffic Injury Prevention found that women are more likely to get hurt in a car crash. This is true even when they are wearing seat belts. Ultimately, the data indicates that women are 73% more likely than men to be hurt in a front-end collision. Researchers analyzed data from 22,854 front-end collisions that were reported to police in California and throughout the country. These accidents occurred between 1998 and 2015 involving roughly an equal number of males and females.

Speed limiters may soon be required in all new trucks

A bipartisan Senate bill may soon affect thousands of truck drivers in California and across the country. The bill, Cullum Owings Large Truck Safe Operating Speed Act of 2019, was developed by a Democratic and Republican senator. It would require that all newly produced Class 7 and Class 8 trucks be installed with speed-limiting devices.

July Fourth sees more DUI crash deaths than any other US holiday

The Fourth of July saw 1,192 DUI fatalities between 2010 and 2017, followed by Memorial Day with 1,105. California residents should know that certain factors make Independence Day especially deadly.
