Senate bill would mandate tractor-trailer side underride guards

More than 200 road users in Pennsylvania and around the country are killed each year when the passenger vehicles they are traveling in strike the side of a semi-tractor trailer. The National Transportation Safety Board urged the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to mandate the fitting of side guards to all new tractor-trailers in 2014, but the recommendation was nonbinding and no regulation was introduced.

Road rage: defusing it in others and avoiding it in oneself

Aggressive and bullying drivers are as much a fact of life in Pennsylvania as they are anywhere else. They cut off other drivers, ride people's bumpers to make them move out of the way and steal parking spots. The question is not how to make such drivers kinder. Instead, the issue is how to keep them from getting angrier and to not make moves that can compromise everyone's safety. Like with many other things, the process begins with one's self.

Keeping teens safe on their motorcycles

Teen motorcyclists in Pennsylvania and elsewhere in the U.S. will want to know how they can keep themselves safe. After all, motorcyclists are 35 times more likely than automobile drivers to get in a fatal crash, and 90 percent of all motorcyclists who are involved in a crash had no previous formal training. What makes matters worse is that over half of all teen motorcyclists opt for sports bikes, which are responsible for more collisions than any other model.

Car crashes are often preventable, research indicates

Auto accidents are always a concern when drivers take to the roads in Pennsylvania and across the United States. There are over 6 million car crashes that take place across the country every year, and the number of collisions increased in both 2015 and 2016. These crashes not only lead to significant property damage but also major bodily injuries. This means that researchers are looking into the causes of auto accidents in order to develop more understanding about why the crashes occur and help to prevent future crashes, lowering the annual toll of injuries and fatalities.
