Car company using technology to prevent drunk driving accidents

A leading car company is on a mission to make the roads safer for drivers in New Mexico and elsewhere in the country by using technology to proactively detect questionable driving behavior. The European automaker plans to include in-car cameras and sensors on its vehicles to look for signs of intoxication or distraction. The new system, which will be installed on vehicles starting in the early 2020s, goes a step further by allowing the car to intervene when necessary.

New studies from Risk Institute shed light on distracted driving

Many drivers in New Mexico, as elsewhere, use their phone or in-vehicle technology while behind the wheel. This can lead to accidents. The National Safety Council states that such accidents contribute to an average of 9 deaths and 100 injuries every day in the U.S. To combat the growing epidemic of distracted driving, the NSC has designated every April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

Weather Channel sued after fatal motor vehicle accident

New Mexico fans of the Weather Channel show "Storm Wranglers" may be aware that its hosts, Kelley Williamson and Randy Yarnall, died while chasing down a storm in Texas. On March 28, 2017, while the two were following a tornado, their live stream suddenly came to an end. The two had run a stop sign and smashed into a car driven by a 25-year-old employee of the National Weather Service. All three were killed.

For-profit nursing home risks

Many people living in New Mexico have loved ones living in nursing homes. Because the elderly are often quite vulnerable, a high level of trust must exist between nursing homes, their residents and the residents' families. Sadly, that trust can be breached, and it appears as though breaches of trust are more likely to occur in for-profit nursing homes.
