After the crash: catastrophic injuries

We’ve all heard the news stories. There’s a major crash on I-96 with two people killed and three sent to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Imagine for a moment one of those injured people is a family member. It’s devastating to think about. A spinal cord injury may keep them from ever walking again—through no fault of their own. There’s a long road to recovery ahead after enduring multiple surgeries and hospital stays. There will be no shortage of medical bills.

What is the penalty in Michigan for texting while driving?

In our last post, we talked about self-driving and autonomous vehicles, and how these vehicles are poised to change the way we think about getting from point A to point B. Self-driving cars will also dramatically change safety out on the roads, as these vehicles are supposed to cut down on the number of accidents that occur by significant numbers. If that does happen, they will be a massive breakthrough.

Self-driving car technology is already available

Road safety advocates say that autonomous vehicles could one day virtually eliminate motor vehicle accidents in Michigan and around the country. While cars lacking steering wheels and pedals may still be several years away from dealer showrooms, the research being done by companies like Google, Tesla and Volvo is already preventing crashes and saving lives. Even modestly priced cars, SUVs and pickup trucks are now available with systems that watch blind spots, prevent skids and can actually brake or steer automatically in emergency situations, but some experts worry that having this kind of technology at their disposal could encourage drivers to act recklessly.
