Not wearing a seatbelt can be dangerous

In South Carolina, a State Trooper by the name of Sean Groubert was going about his duty of enforcing the laws of the road.

The insurance requirements are clarified

The principle underlying the requirement for mandatory auto insurance is “financial responsibility”. Put simply, this says anyone who engages in an activity that puts others at risk of injury or financial loss, should be able to take responsibility to make good all losses. As applied to driving, every state requires the owners of vehicles to be able to show they could pay a guaranteed minimum amount should they cause loss or damage. In most states, this duty can be satisfied by the owner buying a valid car insurance policy. WhenRead More

Who’s doing the driving?

The law is sometimes alarmingly easy to understand and then sometimes quite challenging. The idea of vicarious liability says that when someone employs another to do work, the employer is legally responsible for everything the employee does during the course of that work. So if an employee is driving on employer business during the working day, you sue the employer if the employee crashes into you. But if the person who’s doing the driving is an independent contractor, you sue him or her directly. The news out of California forRead More

Laws to limit self-driving cars

Google are proposing a radical new type of car which would eliminate the ability of the people inside the vehicle to control it. There would be no pedals and no steering wheel. People would be expected to trust the new technology and sit back while they are gently wafted to their destination (at no more than 25 mph).

Regulating cycling

America is the land of roads. There are interstate highways and dirt roads out in the rural backwoods. But, for some, there are never enough roads. At least, that’s true so long as the cost of gas remains affordable. At some point, the political wind may change and a new wind may begin to blow. This time, instead of personal transport based on electric vehicles, the feeling may be the bicycle is the most environmentally friendly form of personal transport on the planet. Since Americans are also putting on extraRead More

Annual premium rates keep rising

No matter what your point of view, it seems everything costs more each year. If you’re a consumer, you notice this because unless your pay also rises, it gets harder to make all the payments on your family budget. If you’re one of these corporations that the Supreme Court says are just like ordinary people, all the other corporations keep upping their prices so everything costs more. That’s why you have to increase your prices to help pay all the bills. That may seem a little abstract so let’s comeRead More

Everyone who has car insurance knows the reality of zip code discrimination.

Sometimes you wonder whether it’s a good thing to find out exactly how much the rates change. There’s greater peace of mind not knowing how much more you’re paying. But, for better or worse, here comes some research from California. We need to startRead More
