The incredible disappearing glass: new cars have less sightlines

Safety features in motor vehicles have been a regular feature on this blog. Just a couple of weeks ago, we talked about a bevy of new safety features that are making it easier for drivers to stay safe in case of an accident; and in some cases, avoid an accident altogether thanks to some of these technological improvements.

Wearable baby blanket recalled for choking hazard

Parents in Montana do everything they can to protect their children. Unfortunately, there are some things that a parent cannot control. Among those things are hazardous or defective products. Parents expect that products -- especially those made for children or infants -- are safe. Unfortunately, frequent product recalls show that this is not always the case. 

Car crosses center line and crashes into motorcycle in Montana

A motorcycle rider died and his passenger injured apparently due to a car crossing the center line of a highway and striking the motorcycle.  The accident occurred along U.S. Highway 212 in eastern Montana in Powder River County.

New auto safety innovations are benefiting motorists

We have previously written about the dangers of distracted driving. At present, distracted driving is the number one cause of preventable auto accidents. However, it is not the only danger plaguing drivers and not the only hazard inspiring technological innovations to keep motorists safer. A number of new safety advances are available to consumers and may soon lead to a reduction in motor vehicle accidents nationwide.

15-year-old was driving in crash that injured 4 in Billings

Last week we discussed the fact that teenage drivers are at greater risk of being involved in a car accident than other drivers who are more experienced. Unfortunately, inexperience may have been a factor in a recent single-vehicle crash that left four people injured in Billings. 

Teens are problematically waiting to earn their drivers' licenses

Novice drivers are uniquely vulnerable behind the wheel. In a motorist’s first year of driving, he or she is more likely to be involved in devastating car accidents than at any other point in time. As a result, many states have initiated graduated drivers licensing (GDL) programs. These programs require teen drivers in particular to adhere to various rules that decrease in their restrictive nature over time. By requiring teen drivers to adhere to strict rules during their first six months, year and two years of driving, they gain valuable experience while remaining as safe as possible.
