Fleet operators use technology to combat distracted driving

Traffic deaths in Kentucky and around the country have risen alarmingly in recent years despite improved road layouts and more sophisticated automobile safety systems, and many safety advocates say that the prolific use of cellphones by motorists and an ensuing surge in distracted driving is chiefly responsible. Distracted drivers rarely take evasive action before crashing, which makes this behavior especially dangerous when heavy commercial vehicles are involved that can be difficult to control even with an alert driver behind the wheel.

Burnout may be to blame for many medical mistakes

Kentucky residents who work in high-stress environments that involve many intense interactions with others are at a high risk for burnout. This reversible condition is characterized by physical fatigue and emotional exhaustion, sometimes revealing itself in cynicism, depression and thoughts of suicide. A study published in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings has revealed that more than half of all doctors in the nation suffer burnout.

Cars that generate the most injury claims

As today's vehicles are being equipped with more and more safety features, drivers can avoid accidents and be protected from serious injuries should a crash occur. However, the risk of accidents taking place will remain until perhaps all vehicles become fully automated. In addition, different vehicles offer different levels of protection. Drivers in Kentucky should know about a recent list that has been compiled of the most dangerous vehicles.

Research suggests automated cars won't harm insurance industry

Despite several dire predictions in 2016, recent data suggests that automated vehicles may not lead to the death of the car insurance industry after all. As a string of fatal accidents involving self-driving cars have shown, liability issues will still affect drivers in Kentucky and across the country. The most likely scenario is that the industry will evolve, not die.

An accurate diagnosis can be elusive for women

When female patients are evaluated for heart disease, they face a 50 percent possibility of being misdiagnosed; when they are admitted to the emergency room with stroke symptoms, they are 30 percent more likely to be misdiagnosed than male patients. In the case of diseases such as lupus and multiple sclerosis, women often have to get five medical opinions over more than four years before they can get an accurate diagnosis.
