More To Car Seat Safety Than Just Strapping Kids In

One dead after speeding car slams into St. Petersburg house

Educational sessions were held in schools and daycare centers. A local fire department offered free booster seats to the first 250 people who attended a meeting where a car-safety video, No Regrets, was shown. None of this was done for the control group in York. Six months after the educational campaign ended, the researchers found a 28 percent increase in booster seat use in the Norristown group, compared with no change in York. And as a bonus, more Norristown adults were found to be using seat belts after the campaign. The study, said Arbogast, proves that the key to reaching the unpersuaded is to enlist messengers respected by their communities. “As parents, we are constantly bombarded with safety information. We want to do the right thing, but it’s hard to tease it all out .

BMW M4 Safety Car Debuts in MotoGP at Qatar Grand Prix

“I do feel very fortunate that all he hit was the corner of the house and the porch,” Brown said. Onlookers speculated about a police pursuit, but a St. Petersburg Police Department spokesman said the crash happened quickly and that Harshbarger had not been pursued. A caller reported seeing the car driving south on 49th Street N at a high speed without headlights. Moments later, the car was in pieces. Harshbarger’s driving record shows he was cited for driving under the influence in 1998. In 1989, his license was suspended for six months for the same violation. In 2008, his record shows, he was part of a crash with property damage. In a separate incident that year, he was cited for driving 55 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Consumer safety groups say NHTSA should have pressured GM to order a recall as early as 2007. The agency’s acting chief, David Friedman, has been called to testify before a House of Representatives panel in April looking into whether NHTSA failed to heed warning signs. A Senate panel is also planning hearings. Feds say reports inconclusive Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, whose sprawling department oversees NHTSA, has defended the agency, saying data about the ignition switch from was “inconclusive”. “It just didn’t point to an investigation” by NHTSA, he said, describing the broad probe that companies fear. That evidence included two reports completed in 2006 and 2007 by outside investigators hired by NHTSA. The reports zeroed in, as Young had, on the ignition problem. Both were the results of so-called Special Crash Investigations, which the agency initiates when it wants to take a deeper dive into accidents and their underlying causes, to help see if a wider NHTSA investigation is warranted. After the 2006 Wisconsin crash, the Chevy Cobalt driven by Megan Ungar-Kerns, now Megan Phillips, was taken to an impound lot. Former state trooper Young met a NHTSA contractor from Indiana University and shared his findings. “I made them aware,” he said. The team from Indiana University searched NHTSA’s own database in 2006 and found at least six consumer complaints of the ignition switch cutting off the engine.

What to do if you have a car that’s a lemon

Even if the dealer says it cant find the cause of the problem it still counts as an attempt. Ensure all of your concerns are noted on the work order. You can also complain to your state motor vehicle department if you find inconsistencies in the work order. When you suspect you have a lemon, contact the manufacturer through certified mail so it has proof of your complaint before you file a lawsuit. If the dealer tries to trade you into a different car, ask to see the terms and check around to ensure you arent getting another lemon. Notify the FTC if you suspect foul play, as it oversees the manufacturers, dealers and warranties. In some cases, you can double your damages if you can prove the manufacturer violated the lemon law willfully. Hire an attorney. Many state lemon laws pay legal fees to make filing a complaint more affordable. Sometimes all it takes is an attorney letter to resolve [the case] quicker. You can find one through the National Association of Consumer Advocates . Consider using the state-run arbitration offered by the attorney generals office. The Better Business Bureaus dispute resolution program handles the majority of arbitration, but its funded by the manufacturer, Shahan cautions. Above all else: Be persistent, Shahan says.

Auto Safety Agency Asleep At The Wheel, Critics Say

BMW M4 Safety Car Debuts in MotoGP at Qatar Grand Prix

“The agency did not open an investigation in the GM Cobalt case and in many other cases, I believe, because they decided that unless they had everything handed to them on a silver platter in terms of evidence and information, they didn’t have to act. And that’s just completely incorrect,” Claybrook said in an interview. Sean Kane, a safety advocate and president of Safety Research & Strategies , has sued NHTSA four times in the past few years to get access to documents on incident investigations. He says the agency needs better practices and procedures. “There are no guidelines for what gets investigated and how the agency’s limited resources are allocated,” he said. Kane, who is often an expert witness for the plaintiff in accident cases, believes a “complete systematic shakeup” is needed to make NHTSA work better and smarter. The goal should be to find hidden safety problems, rather than “go from crisis to crisis,” he said. Lives are at stake There’s no way you can tell if your vehicle has a hidden safety defect. We rely on federal regulators to uncover these problems and force the manufacturers to fix them. Critics say the much-delayed GM Cobalt ignition switch recall is just one example that shows the watchdog isn’t doing its job.

“Official Car of MotoGP”: BMW M presents new highlights in 2014

However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is not so pleased with Teslas boasting. The NHTSA has issued a clarification regarding Teslas claim that the car has scored 5.4 out of 5 in the crash tests. Tesla also said that the Model S broke the machine used in NHTSAs roof crush test. The point was, however, not confirmed by NHTSA. According to NHTSA, it never rates a vehicle beyond five stars and do not rank or order vehicles within the star rating categories. The company has proper guidelines for manufactures and publishers to ensure that accurate and consistent information is conveyed to the public. According to the guidelines the carmakers can use only specific phrases like five -star or highest Government rating to describe the crash test result. John Voelcker at Green Cars said that this isnt the first time when Tesla has over boasted about its car model. Regardless of what has been publicized, the crash results of NHTSA tests have shown that the Model @ in an incredibly safe car. It has scored perfect five out of five in other tests too. It is the only car to receive a good rating in the side pole intrusion test. The model has a large front zone impact and a double bumper at the rear end provides an extra protection.

2015 Audi A3 Gets Top Safety Pick Plus Rating from IIHS [Video]

She saw a wall of fire outside her window. The car had flown into the air, hit a tree and split into several pieces. The rear portion grazed part of her window awning and slid through the front of her porch on the corner of 49th Street North and 34th Avenue North. It happened just before 4:30 a.m. The driver, who police have not identified but who they said may have been traveling south at over 100 miles per hour, died after he was thrown from the car. Pieces of his vehicle crushed Brown’s railing, sheared the front of a bush, shattered a window and then miraculously slid away from her house. As they slept, a single wall separated Brown and her husband from the flying car. “I do feel very fortunate that all he hit was the corner of the house and the porch,” Brown said. Wreckage from the crash covered more than a block of 49th Street North, from the spot where the driver hit a bus stop near 35th Avenue North to the yard of a dental office on 34th Avenue North, where the mangled front end landed. As she stepped outside in the dark, Brown scanned the debris that littered her yard and her neighbors’. “My eyes wandered to every little piece,” Brown said.

Our firm’s focus right now is helping the people those ‘terrible things’ happened to.” A report by CNNMoney dated Mar. 11, 2014 cited a letter Barra sent to General Motors employees, noting that the company will, “hold [itself] accountable” for the problems associated with the defective components. “More than 3 million vehicles have been recalled in the past two months, and an independent vehicle safety group says that more than 300 deaths could be linked to the vehicle defects. This isn’t news that should be ignored,” Gordon said, referring to The Center for Auto Safety’s latest findings, published in a Mar. 14, 2014 Detroit affiliate WXYZ, citing 303 fatalities in recalled Chevrolet Cobalts which may be the result of the faulty ignition switch failing to deploy air bags at the time of impact.

Wenger: Good Drivers Have Accidents

61 Cars Involved In Mendota Bridge Crash

In what was supposed to be a celebration of Wenger’s 1,000th game in charge of the club, the Frenchman watched his team concede four first-half goals in a demoralising derby loss on Saturday. Wenger said the response to the loss had been an overreaction after his team had kept clean sheets against Tottenham and held Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw. Along with the loss to Chelsea, Arsenal have been beaten 5-1 by Liverpool and crushed 6-3 by Manchester City this season. “You have to put that into perspective, we just came out of two convincing results at Bayern Munich and at Tottenham with a very solid defensive performance so you have to think that was an accident,” Wenger said. “How do you deal with the accident? You repair the damage and you go for the next one. “An accident has happened, that doesn’t mean that you’re not a good driver. It just means we have played about 40 games this season and it’s not what happened on Saturday that reflects the quality of this team.” Wenger’s men have a quick chance to bounce back with a meeting against Swansea at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday. He said Arsenal needed to get back to the quality that sees them sitting fourth in the Premier League.

Sandy Thuy Le, 26, died from the injuries she sustained when she was run over outside The Mohawk music club early Thursday, Austin police spokeswoman Veneza Bremner said. Police say the driver, Rashad Owens, was fleeing police when he crashed through a barricade and accelerated his car into a crowd in Austin’s Red River Entertainment District, killing two people at the scene and injuring 21 others. Le had been listed in critical condition since she was struck. Dr. Christopher Ziebell, the emergency department director at the University Medical Center-Brackenridge, had said the two most critically injured patients suffered life-threatening head injuries. Stuart Gates told The Clarion Ledger of Jackson, Miss., that Le his sister-in-law was surrounded by friends and family when she died Monday morning. “She lived in this whimsy that almost made you jealous, she was a very carefree and nonchalant person with a definitely giving spirit, and she was very selfless,” Gates said. “She was full of life, she was quirky, and she was always someone you were looking forward to seeing.” The victims who died Thursday were Steven Craenmehr, a 35-year-old Dutchman who was on a bicycle, and 27-year-old Jamie West of Austin, who was riding on a moped when the car plowed into her. Five of the injured remained hospitalized Monday at University Medical Center, including one person in critical condition and two in serious condition, spokeswoman Kendra Clawson said.

Twenty two-car accident in Lenexa leaves 8 injured

Oftentimes, a detailed police report written by an officer at the scene can make a difference for someone who wants justice to be served. Last month, the Las Vegas NV Cops Department formally announced in that it would stop responding to property damage auto accidents in the city starting March 3, according to CNN. The city made the decision in an effort to allocate their resources toward bigger cases. Previously, the police department estimated they spent 250 hours a week responding to minor property damage car accidents in Las Vegas, according to CNN. However, Las Vegas NV police officers will continue to respond to auto accidents in which someone sustained an injury in an accident, CNN reported. Las Vegas NV police will moreover respond to accidents if one of the drivers refuses to turn over information to the other driver, in addition to insurance information, license & registration, CNN reported. Las Vegas is not the 1st city to adopt this new policy of no longer responding to property damage accidents. San Diego, San Francisco & LA CA no longer respond to property damage car accidents, according to Las Vegas NV traffic chief Mark Tavarez, according to the CNN article. Las Vegas, NV auto accident lawyer Glenn A. Paternoster, co-founder of Aaron & Paternoster, Ltd., asserted the police department should reconsider its decision. Car accidents need to be properly documented, no matter how minor or major they might seem, Paternoster said.
