Are high drivers as dangerous as drunk drivers?

If a person smokes a joint then gets in his car to make a quick run through a McDonald's drive-through, is he putting other drivers in danger? Or is driving while under the influence of marijuana safe compared to drunk driving? This is what officials in places like Colorado, where some level of marijuana use is legal, are trying to figure out. 

Fewer older drivers killed in accidents

A number of our blog posts have focused on the development of crash avoidance technologies that are poised to change the way people drive (and avoid accidents). We also suggested that these changes were made in part to attract a new class of buyers (older drivers) that would not usually purchase a new car at such an advanced age.

GM reportedly knew about ignition switch defect

It appears that the massive recall General Motors recently issued is only the tip of the iceberg when considering the widespread liability it could be subject to. The recall involves hundreds of thousands of Chevy Cobalts built between 2005 and 2007, along with Pontiac G5s built in 2007. The defect involved the ignition switch in the cars, where the key could potentially fall out of the steering column if it was weighed down by a heavy key chain.

Jimmy John's could be liable for car-pedestrian crash

Jimmy John's may be known for its "freaky fast delivery" of its famous sandwiches, but after an accident involving a delivery driver and a pedestrian, the sandwich franchise may have to reconsider its moniker. According to a recent report by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the crash occurred in Morgantown, West Virginia, where a man who was walking his dog across a street was struck and killed by a Jimmy John's delivery driver.

Negative social media review leads to lawsuit

In the age of social media, recommendations on sites such as LivingSocial.com, YahooLocal.com and Avvo.com can be a boon for businesses seeking to gain credibility with potential customers. A positive review can help customers understand how they can benefit from using the company’s services, and word-of-mouth advertising is essentially the most effective type of promotion.

Winter car crashes can be avoided

It may seem like a myth or urban legend, but many accidents occurring during the winter time do not involve another vehicle. In fact, they commonly involve contact with the elements (instead of another driver). Many of our posts this winter have focused on the dangers of black ice, and the growing conversion of the urban legend is ample reason for this.
