Study: Are hands-free cellphones truly safe?

If you have used your cellphone while behind the wheel, you are not alone. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, more than 660,000 people use their cellphone while behind the wheel at any given time of the day. As a result, thousands of people are killed and injured in distracted driving car accidents every year. As a way to minimize this risk of accidents, injury and death, you may have replaced your hand-held cellphone with a hands-free variety. You may be surprised to learn, however, that even by doing so, you are still at risk of becoming involved in car accident due to cognitive distraction.

Drive safely in fog

Many drivers in California do not have to worry about driving in snowy or icy conditions, but fog can be a problem. Fog occurs most commonly during the night and in the early to mid-morning hours. Even a little fog can be detrimental to drivers, but it can be particularly dangerous when it is very heavy and dense, so drivers should know how to drive in it to prevent accidents with other motorists.

The risks of riding in a limo

Riding in a limo in California is typically associated with fun and special events such as weddings, bachelorette parties, birthday celebrations and wine tasting with friends. While no one wants to think about bad things during these events, passengers should be aware of some of the dangers related to riding in these luxury vehicles.
