Nevada considers technology to check phones after crashes

The state of Nevada may introduce controversial new technology that can help law enforcement determine whether cell phone usage played a part in motor vehicle accidents. The New York legislature rejected a measure to use the technology in 2017, but the state is also considering it again. The first version of the proposal before the Nevada legislature allowed drivers' licenses to be suspended for 90 days if they would not agree to have their phones checked, but the proposal was amended to require a warrant if a driver refused.

Ford educates young people about the dangers of drowsy driving

As part of its young driver education program, the Ford Motor Company has developed a "Sleep Suit" that simulates the effects of sleep deprivation.

AAA: daylight saving time can lead to drowsy driving

Drivers in Florida should aim to sleep at least seven hours every night. Missing one to two hours of that within a 24-hour period, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, can nearly double one's chances for a car crash. This is why it's always critical to get enough sleep in preparation for daylight saving time.

Pedestrian deaths are rising for several reasons

Florida was among the states with high populations that recorded a collective 5 percent rise in pedestrian deaths during the first half of 2018. A report from the Governors Highway Safety Association cited growing population as one source of the increase in traffic fatalities involving pedestrians. With more people crossing streets, the likelihood of accidents increase, but sport utility vehicles and smartphone distractions appear to be contributing to the problem as well.
