Automotive defects, auto company cover-ups and huge jury awards

Last week we wrote about the millions of automobiles that have been recalled this year for dangerous and potentially deadly defects. In addition to the General Motors recall alleging defective ignition switches, some 14 million vehicles made by Honda and others have been recalled due to potentially dangerous airbags. All vehicles recalled used airbags manufactured by a Japanese company called Takata.

Vehicles recalled for defective air bags reach 14 million so far

Much of the news this year has been dominated by the vehicle recall scandal involving General Motors. Central to this scandal were allegations that certain GM officials knew about dangerous ignition switch defects starting in the early 2000s, yet recalls were not issued until earlier this year.

What changes are needed to reduce bicycle & pedestrian accidents?

Our post last week focused on a California law set to go into effect later this month. It requires that drivers observe a three-foot buffer zone when passing bicyclists on the street. The “Three Feet for Safety” law is just one tactic that could dramatically reduce bicycle accidents and fatalities, which are a significant problem across the country.

Will California's bicycle 'buffer zone' law improve safety?

Here in San Francisco and in other California cities, bicycling is more than just a recreational hobby. A growing number of Californians are choosing to make the bicycle their primary mode of transportation when commuting to and from work. And in a city where parking is nearly impossible to find, bicycling also makes practical sense.
