voiture sportiveThe San Diego-based automotive brand analysis firm, Strategic Visions recently released its “Customer Love Index” for 2015 model-year vehicles. The report indicated that Americans are definitely not enamored with hybrids. In fact, the only class of vehicles that scored below the minivan was the hybrid. But what exactly is the most loved car of 2015?

Infotainment pieces can be articles, blogs, and even videos. They can be found on our computers, our smartphones, and even in our cars. In fact, infotainment is everywhere –and this constant accessibility may be killing us.
mit Schnupfen AutofahrenWe’ve all been there—you are right in the middle of rush hour traffic on a Friday afternoon, the sun is in your eyes and you feel a sneeze coming on. According to some research, more than two million drivers have crashed because of a sneeze while they were driving, and at least a third of adults believe driving is the worst time to sneeze. In fact, sneezing can have disastrous, or even fatal consequences when it happens to a driver. A 79-year old Australian woman died in 2014 after a sneeze caused her to jerk the wheel of her car, causing a rollover. A school teacher in Missouri lost control of her car in 2012 after a sneeze, running into another driver, who lost her life in the accident.

Car with smashed windshieldA Boeing jetliner crashed near the East Midlands airport in England in 1989. The crash occurred during an emergency landing, killing a full third of the passengers on board. Doctors who attended to the survivors of the crash, found those who had “braced” prior to the crash, were less likely to have brain trauma or concussions, regardless of where they sat on the plane. The “brace” position in an airplane is head bend forward, feet planted on the floor. Since 1967, the FAA has been studying the brace position, using crash dummies. There have been some adjustments made on the exact posture for those in an anticipated crash, however the basic principles have remained the same.

pot-in-jar-smSince the advent of the motor vehicle, drunk drivers have plagued our streets and highways. But now, a federal report tells us a new threat is becoming increasingly prevalent- drugged driving. Even you may have even driven under the influence of drugs – and not even been aware you were impaired. But what exactly is considered drugged driving, and is drugged driving as dangerous as driving drunk?
Woman on red bikeEveryone in America has a responsibility to share the road. This means motorists, bikers, cyclists, and pedestrians all have to learn to get along. Yet, each year thousands of bicyclists are injured and killed in motor vehicle accidents on the road. Motor vehicle drivers are quick to point the finger, citing lack of bicycle safety or riding in the middle of the lane. Bicyclists, on the other hand, are quick to point out that motor vehicle drivers don’t always pay attention to them in the road or cut them off when they have the legal right-of-way. So this begs the question: Who causes accidents more often: Cyclists or Motorcyclists?
The businessman using mobile smart phone while driving the carWhile most of us tend to think teens are the biggest texting offenders on the roadways, the surprising results of a recent study found middle-aged drivers have a high rate of collisions due to the use of their cell phones while driving. These results show that very few drivers really have a clear understanding of the risks associated with distracted driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported driver distraction was the primary cause of at least 18 percent of all auto crashes in 2012, with more than 3,300 people killed as a result. It is widely believed those numbers were actually much higher in 2012 because many of those who crash as a result of distracted driving do not admit that fact. Three years later, in 2015, the numbers are estimated to be as high as 30 percent or more.

We might call them “crazy,” a “slowpoke,” “Grandma,” or other names. In order to determine which driving personalities are the most common, drivers in the largest cities in the U.S. were asked specific questions. These questions included “How do you react to being tailgated,” “How do you react to being cut off,” “At what point on your gas gauge do you fill the tank,” and “What do you do if you miss  your exit?” Once all the answers were compiled, the following key types of driver personalities were revealed:
