Deadly Nebraska car accident

A Jan. 24 car accident that occurred at approximately 10 a.m. near Wahoo resulted in the death of a 29-year old woman.

Volvo hopes to eliminate fatalities in their cars by 2020

Car buyers in Nebraska who look first for safety and durability often decide that vehicles manufactured by Volvo best suit their needs. The Swedish company has built a reputation for placing safety at the top of its list of priorities with innovations such as the three-point seat belt and the rearward facing child safety seat. The three-point seat belt alone is thought to have saved over 1 million lives since its introduction in 1959. Volvo is also a leading proponent of autonomous vehicle technology, and the company says that self-driving cars could virtually eliminate traffic accidents in the future.

Safety agency releases "Most Wanted" list

Nebraska drivers should be informed about the items that made it onto the National Transportation Safety Board list of 'Most Wanted" safety improvements for 2016. In addition to some items that appeared on the 2015 list, the 2016 list features some unique safety items. One focus of the list is to reduce fatigue-related motor vehicle accidents.

Light snow and dangerous driving

Light snow might cause more car accidents than an actual snowstorm, as drivers' perceptions do not always allow them to adjust appropriately to sudden light light snow or ice on the road. Even when Nebraska drivers are being careful, they might not fully perceive the danger that a light snow dusting might cause.

Crash leaves 1 dead in Nebraska

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.
