The ambitious goals of Elon Musk for autonomous car technology have aroused worldwide safety concerns, magnifying the tricky balance in self-driving car development. While autonomous cars are designed to make the roads safer, moving ahead too quickly could cause motorists’ lives to be in danger.

Parents can help reduce the risk of teen driving accidents by ensuring that their teenagers are ready to get behind the wheel. The risk of motor vehicle crashes is higher among teenagers than among any other age group.

Millennial drivers between 19 and 24 are a serious hazard to other motorists. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, over 88 percent of millennials engaged in at least one dangerous driving behavior within a 30-day period. Older drivers and teens between 16 and 18 are also guilty of engaging in the risky driving behavior, though not to the same degree. Overall, young millennials are the worst offenders when it comes to engaging in risky behavior behind the wheel, especially regarding distracted driving where cell phones are involved.

Nevadans should avoid driving in the dangerous blind spots around large trucks. Because of their size and design, blind spots exist behind and on either side of large trucks. It can be very difficult for truck drivers to see motorists who are traveling in these areas. When drivers make the mistake of driving in these locations, they are at a much greater risk of being involved in truck accidents. When an accident is caused by a truck driver’s negligence, a truck accident attorney may help the victims to recover damages. If the other motorist causes the accident through his or her own negligence, however, he or she might not have the valid grounds to file a claim against the truck driver or the company for whom the driver works.

Ranked for 2016 as the state with the seventh worst drivers in the nation, it appears that Nevada’s motorists have a lot to work on.
