In May of 2016, a driver and his “driverless” Tesla Model S driver did not see a tractor-trailer crossing the road. Failure to take control from the autopilot proved to be a fatal delay.A subsequent investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) raised concerns on the limitations of the autopilot feature and Tesla’s definition of the term.
Connecticut residents should be able to get in their cars or hit the streets on foot or on two wheels and know that they will be safe. Sadly, that is not always possible. And, what may be even sadder is that the reality of traffic accidents may be getting graver if recently released crash fatality statistics are any indication.
While everyone has heard that it is dangerous to drive while drowsy, many people wonder if it is really as serious as it sounds. Whether or not you are part of the 83.6 million drivers across the country who the Connecticut Post reports operate a vehicle while suffering from sleep deprivation each day, it is important to learn the facts surrounding drowsy driving.
Connecticut parents go above and beyond to ensure their children remain safe in all situations. This includes trips to the grocery store, which can turn tragic in an instant should a shopping cart injury occur. While such instances seem unlikely, in fact numerous children are harmed due to shopping carts each year and some even suffer from significant injuries as a result.
It should have been just a quick trip to the supermarket to pick up a few things to make dinner. Unfortunately, things do not go according to plan. As you were pulling into the parking lot, you were rear ended by a distracted driver. The accident pushed your car into another vehicle that was waiting to pull out of the parking lot, so your sedan has impact damage in the front and the back. You are still waiting on a quote for the damages, but the insurance company may decide to total it.
