Collision avoidance systems save lives in Kentucky

Many car manufacturers boast about various technological safety features that their vehicles offer, including different types of collision avoidance systems. In order to determine how effective these systems are in saving lives, researchers completed a study in which they compared vehicles with these safety features with vehicles that did not have them.

Why large trucks and small vehicles collide

Kentucky residents may believe that accidents involving large trucks take place overnight, on the interstate or that they are caused by aggressive drivers. However, these are not assumptions that are borne out by the facts. In about 70 percent of accidents between large trucks and smaller vehicles, the driver of the smaller vehicle was responsible. This may be because drivers of those vehicles drive too fast or are in a truck driver's blind spot at the time of a crash.

Defective fuel pump results in truck recall

Kentucky truck drivers should be aware that over 1,700 tractor-trailers will be recalled because of a potential defect in the fuel pump in some Cummins engines. An estimated 1,737 Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks that were built with Cummins ISX15 engines are included in the recall.
