Drunk driving deaths continue to rise

Roughly one-third of deadly car accidents involve drivers who have had too much to drink. Perhaps it should come as no surprise then that the general increase in traffic deaths over the past two years has included an increase in drunk driving fatalities. Last year, there were 10,265 such fatalities. This year, that number is expected to rise. With one of the deadliest nights of the year for drinking and driving accidents right around the corner, it is a good time to reconsider the problem of drunken motorists.

Walking back truck safety rules

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has been attempting to install a new set of rules regarding hours of service for truck drivers. Those rules were blocked by Congress this week, some say at the behest of trucking industry lobbyists. The goal of the rules is to reduce fatigue-related truck accidents. A trucking industry group has promised to seek more changes in January, once the legislators elected in November take office.

Reporting dangerous auto defects

Motor vehicle recalls reached record highs in the past two years. Despite the increase, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration wants to make it easier for consumers to report auto safety problems with their cars. The NHTSA has proposed a rule that would force automakers to place labels on the sun visors of new vehicles. These labels would include instructions to car owners on how to file safety complaints.
