The self-driving car's secret problem

The self-driving car is an invention that its creators believe will lead to safer roads. However, a secret problem of these vehicles has been identified as more are tested on actual roads. Self-driving cars follow traffic rules at all times and this is not always compatible with the way humans actually drive. Kentucky drivers, however, might prepare to eventually share the road with these cars and will need to understand the potential risks.

New logging requirements coming for Kentucky drivers

Since 1938, commercial drivers have been required to keep written logbooks documenting the hours they drive each day. In December 2015, the federal government announced a new regulation that will require trucking companies to install electronic logging devices in order to prevent their drivers from doctoring their books.

Wheelchair users vulnerable in pedestrian accidents

Drivers and pedestrians in Kentucky should be aware that wheelchair users are more likely to die if hit by a car than other pedestrians. Georgetown University researchers, who published their results in a medical journal, said that they found little research on injuries among wheelchair users who were hit while pedestrians and almost none on fatalities. They used data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and newspaper reports in their study.
