Study shows automatic emergency braking reduces accidents

Understandably, many vehicle owners in California have a tendency to gravitate toward cars and trucks designed with optimal safety in mind. An increasingly common safety feature included on vehicles is automatic emergency braking (AEB), which was the focus of a recent study by Insurance Institute For Highway Safety experts. In a nutshell, researchers concluded such systems work very well based on an assessment of 2013-2015 model year vehicles from General Motors. Ten models that included small and large sedans and full-size SUVs were evaluated for the study.

NSC reports insufficiencies in states' auto accident reports

According to a report from the National Safety Council, no state has fields and codes for the reporting of all car crash factors in its police reports. The NSC pinpoints 23 such factors and found that Kansas and Wisconsin, which fared the best, captured only 14 of them. Residents of California will want to know how their state fares.

The dangers of driving at night

Many California motorists will find themselves commuting in the dark now that daylight saving time has ended, so it's important that they know the risks involved with nighttime driving. The nighttime compromises depth perception, color identification and peripheral vision, and it can also be dangerous for those with diminished night vision. This is why one of the best safety tips is to simply slow down.

Enjoy safe driving in the sun

When people in California take to the roads for their daily commute, they may not expect problems on a bright, sunny day. However, bright sunlight can cause serious vision issues for drivers, especially when the rising and setting sun coincide with rush hour traffic. The light is particularly bright at this time and may lead to excessive glare, blocking drivers' vision and leading to dangerous situations. In fact, the risk of a severe car accident rises by 16 percent during periods of particularly bright sunlight. There are some guidelines that drivers can keep in mind to reduce their risk on a sunny day.
