Fatal car accident injures 4 Secret Service agents

Nebraska residents may have heard that four Secret Service officers were injured in a car accident in New Hampshire on Dec. 29. All four of the officers were traveling in a vehicle that was struck head on by a second vehicle. The 45-year-old man who was driving the second car was pronounced dead at the scene while two passengers in his car sustained injuries.

Car accident risks related to driverless cars

As more driverless cars are developed and tested in actual roads, a study has found that their accident rate is currently at twice that of the vehicles driven by humans. The fault, however, doesn't seem to be with the driverless cars, but a result of the interaction between these vehicles that follow traffic rules at all times and humans, who can be inattentive, aggressive or make exceptions to the rules. Nebraska drivers might be interested in finding out the risks associated with these vehicles before their use is widespread.

New rule requires truck driver hours to be logged electronically

Nebraska residents may be aware that federal regulations restrict the amount of time that truck and bus drivers can spend behind the wheel. The regulations are in place to prevent accidents involving heavy commercial vehicles caused by fatigued drivers, but accident investigators have long complained that the paper logs that used by drivers to keep track of their hours can be easily falsified or altered.

Avoiding motorcycle accidents in Nebraska

Whether a rider has just learned how to operate a motorcycle or has been riding for years, erratic or unsafe driving may increase the odds of an accident. However, riders who take the time to educate themselves about the dangers of being on a motorcycle may reduce their risk of being involved in a crash. Understanding how to evaluate road conditions and knowing how to be observant can help avoid common scenarios.
