Driving With Children – Essential Road Safety Tips

OCT 27, 2017

Road Safety Tips for Drivers Based on NHTSA Studies According to NHTSA, about 1,000 minors under 14 get killed in car crashes each year. And most of them (over 700 people) die in cars, while more than 150,000 kids are injured. These statistics are scary, and they are even more devastating since many of these fatalities and injuries were avoidable – if only adults were more responsible and focused on road safety rules.

Think, for instance, of restraints. Based on an NHTSA report, 37% of those kids, who didn’t survive the accident, were unrestrained. And this despite the fact that NHTSA statistics indicate strongly that use of children safety seats reduce the mortality rate by 71% for infants and by 54% for toddlers under 4 years. Even for children occupying the front seat, the mortality reduces by 45% provided they use seat belts. Let’s recollect what traffic rules tell us about restraints and what safety experts recommend in this regard.

Getting Ready for Your DMV Driving Test: What Is "Blind" Spot?

AUG 16, 2017

Imagine a typical situation on the road: you are driving your car and see another vehicle behind you signaling that it is going to overtake your car either from the left or from the right. At first, you clearly see the vehicle through the rear-view mirror on the windshield and then, when it starts the changing lane maneuver, through the side mirror. But suddenly you notice that in the process of overtaking the vehicle has disappeared from your sight somehow, just like a vampire, who is not reflected in mirrors. But has it really disappeared?

If you try to change the lane while thinking it has, you are very likely to get into a traffic accident, since it may turn out that you couldn’t see the vehicle because of a blind spot – space around your car which is not visible through vehicle mirrors.

According to the 2014 NHTSA overview, motorcycle riders are killed in road traffic accidents 27 times more frequently than drivers and passengers in vehicles, and they are 6 times as likely to be injured. To a large extent, these hard figures arise from the recklessness of many motorcyclists who violate traffic rules and bypass basic safety requirements.

Requirements for Legally Riding a Motorcycle and Obtaining a Motorcycle License

JUL 31, 2017

Why do you need a motorcycle license or endorsement? Though requirements for bike riders differ from state to state, there are no states that allow riding motorcycles on public roads without a valid motorcycle license. Even if a person holds a regular driver’s license and has many years of experience in driving various types of vehicles, he or she must obtain a motorcycle endorsement stamped in their DL. If a person has no DL and doesn’t drive any vehicle, but he or she would like to ride a motorbike legally, he or she has to earn a standalone license that is usually classified as a Class M license. Note that neither an existing driver's license gives the right to operate a motorcycle, nor a motorcycle license allows operating a vehicle. So, to operate both types of road transport you need a valid DL with a motorcycle endorsement.

At intermediate stages, a motorcycle learner permit or temporary license can be issued to allow riding legally prior to obtaining a full license. Usually, some restrictions are imposed on a rider holding such a document, such as restricted nighttime riding, passenger restriction or in-jurisdiction only restriction.
