Know the different consequences for drunk and distracted driving

Before cellphones, distracted driving in California often entailed a motorist who was changing radio stations, eating fast food or applying makeup while at the wheel. With so many digital technologies readily available, distracted driving has become more common. Another familiar road hazard is drunk driving, but the two impaired states and their consequences are not as similar as a person might think. 

No recall issued on semiautonomous car after crash

Automobile manufacturers continue to add safety features to vehicles to reduce the number of traffic accidents each year, and many people in California are enthusiastic about the technology. In addition to the airbags and anti-lock brakes that drivers may now take for granted, there are lane departure warning systems, cameras that detect other vehicles in blind spots and automatic braking. When people rely too heavily on new technology, though, they could be putting themselves at greater risk of a crash. 

What you need to know about vehicle recalls

If you are one of the millions of Americans who received a recall notice because your vehicle includes a Takata airbag, you might be familiar with the process of getting a defective part replaced at a local California dealership. However, not everyone who owns a defective car knows that safety may be compromised. At Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, we understand the critical importance of identifying and replacing defective vehicle parts before they cause injuries, or even deaths.
