Self-driving vehicle kills pedestrian in Arizona

Sadly, it finally happened. A self-driving vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in mid-March in Arizona. We can only speculate about what’s going to happen: Technology’s image is expected to take a big public relations hit, while state and federal lawmakers likely will take a much more seriously look at additional regulations pertaining to self-driving vehicles.

With the oncoming spring weather, bikers will be out

It is not surprising that bicycle commuters begin hitting the streets more often as winter melds into spring the Denver metro area. What is surprising, though, is the number of complaint letters to newspapers and over the airwaves regarding biker intrusions onto our roads. The fact is, bicyclists have the same right as motor vehicles on municipal streets, county roads and even state highways.

The major effects of not-so-minor injuries (Part 1): Whiplash

If you’ve never been in a car accident, consider yourself lucky. The average person will get into three or four accidents during the course of a lifetime, according to insurance industry data. Fortunately, most of those accidents are minor, resulting in only property damage or mild injuries.

Animal-vehicle collisions: Will insurance cover your claim?

If you have even been driving on back roads during deer season or traveled through the woods while taking a scenic drive, you have probably have had to dodge an animal or two.  Unfortunately, sometimes a collision is unavoidable and the animal is large enough to cause significant damage or injury to your car or yourself.  Whether you have experienced a crash or a near miss you probably know how shocking and startling these type of accidents can be. With animal-vehicle collision on an upward swing in the state of Colorado, it is more important than ever to know if you are covered. After the initial shock wears off, you may find yourself wondering who will be responsible for covering the costs of injury and repair.

Colorado snowmobile safety

Whether you’re a Colorado native or one of the many welcome visitors our area draws each year, it’s never a bad idea to make sure you’re up to date on the safety regulations for any of our popular winter activities. In this post, we’ll be taking a look at the basics of snowmobile safety, as well as going over the laws that regulate their safe and legal operation. 

The rise in autonomous vehicles and your safety

Currently, there is legislation up for consideration that will make way for autonomous vehicles to operate on a regular basis, and some will not require a driver. Certain large franchises are pushing for the approval of such bills, as it will allow them to reduce shipping costs. Though this could be a win for big business, what does it do for public safety?

Common injuries to professional delivery truck drivers

Delivery drivers beware! As anyone who operates a delivery vehicle for a living surely knows, there are a vast number of opportunities for potential injury to occur while on the job. These can include not only incidents that occur suddenly and sometimes without warning, but also the more long-term types of injuries that can happen over time due to the rigorous and often repetitive nature of this kind of work. Understanding the conditions that factor into many of the most common injuries that afflict professional delivery drivers can go a long way toward helping prevent some of the more avoidable accidents that occur. 

Car accidents are now the number one cause of child deaths

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents are the leading cause of death for children, ranging from ages 1 to 13 years old. Data compiled by the NHTSA from the year 2015 found that 35% of child passengers who were under 13 and who were not buckled up properly in seat belts, booster seats or child safety seats were killed in car accidents that year. In 59% of those cases, booster or safety seats were in use but were either incorrectly installed or not properly buckled.  These statistics don’t even extend to the inclusion of the thousands of instances in which fatality is avoided, but serious injuries to children who are improperly restrained occurred.
