Fatal accidents involving large trucks on the rise

Mississippi drivers may be interested to learn that the number of large trucks involved in fatal accidents increased in 2015, according to statistics from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. These are the most current numbers available.

CVSA's surprise inspections identify brake issues

Mississippi residents understand the importance of safety when it comes to driving, particularly when large commercial trucks are involved. Therefore, they might be concerned that a surprise inspection event identified nearly 2,000 trucks that had to be taken off the road for safety issues, including over 1,000 with brake issues.

Tesla Model S fails to earn place on IIHS safest vehicles list

Mississippi residents may know that the Tesla Model S has been described by the electric car manufacturer and its forward-thinking CEO Elon Musk as the safest vehicle ever to be put on sale in the United States. The Model S is fitted with a dizzying array of the latest passive and active safety systems, but it did not impress testers from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety during a series of accident simulations. The Tesla was one of three full-sized cars to be put through a grueling series of tests by the nonprofit group, and it was one of three that failed to earn a place on its coveted list of America's safest vehicles.

Self-driving car safety regulation uncertain

Multiple vehicle manufacturers and even some technology companies like Apple and Google are highly focused on the autonomous vehicle market and the development of fully self-driving cars. While experts in the industry admit that these cars are still many years away from being ubiquitous on Mississippi highways, testing of the new vehicles has focused on the need for safety regulations.
