If you are in a car accident, does your choice in where you sit in a car really make a difference? Are you safer sitting in the front seat, or the back seat? The answer will depend on where the impact is (head-on collision, rear-end collision, side-impact, rollover, etc.), as well as the safety features available in the vehicle. In this blog post, we will explore this question and discuss things that you can do to stay safe in a car.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has dispatched a special crash investigation team to probe the possibility that a Tesla involved in a Newport Beach crash that killed three people this month was operating on a partially automated driving system.
The 4th of July holiday is a much anticipated time of celebration—perhaps, even more, this year as we are in the tail-end of the COVID-19 pandemic. This Independence Day will be one of the first celebrations, for many people, since social distancing and face mask mandates have been lifted. As the pandemic restrictions are winding down, more people will likely be on the road this weekend, and—unfortunately—a higher number of people will be on the road after consuming alcohol.
After initially denying the Consumer Product’s Safety Commission’s (CPSC) recommendation that it recall its treadmills, Peloton announced on Wednesday that after more consideration it would be complying with the request after all. The recall includes about 125,00 of Peloton’s Tread and Tread+ machines. The CPSC reported that there have been over 70 injuries tied to these treadmills, including one such incident resulting in the death of a six-year-old child.
The CEO of Peloton, John Foley, has reached out about the recent death of a child caused by the company’s popular Tread+ treadmill. In his letter, Foley addressed the tragic accident that involved a child who, sadly, passed away following an incident with a Peloton treadmill. Out of respect to the family, details of the accident have not been released. As of right now, the exact cause of death and the age of the child remain unknown.
