  • Car seat safety: Has your baby's car seat been recalled?

    When it comes to the safety of their babies, most parents don't take chances and they are unwilling to compromise. That's a good thing, because young children are very vulnerable in certain situations. A good example is car accidents.

  • No hindsight needed to know that distracted driving is dangerous

    We frequently write about distracted driving on this blog, and with good reason: It is one of the most serious and common hazards on U.S. roads. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nine people are killed each day and more than 1,153 people are injured in car accidents involving distracted driving. Much of the time, texting and phone calls are to blame. But these are not ...

  • Air bag's history shows slow adoption and government regulation

    There are many features in automobiles that we take for granted. Before power steering, for instance, it was incredibly difficult to turn the wheels of a vehicle while stopped or while driving at low speeds. Using hydraulics to increase steering power both improved performance and safety. We also take other safety features for granted, including seat belts and air bags. It may be hard for younger ...
