Self-Driving Cars: Futuristic or Fatal?

As technology becomes more advanced, knowing your rights on the road becomes even more important. On March 20, 2018, a self-driving car created by Uber struck and killed a 49-year-old pedestrian while she was crossing the street. A tragedy like this implicates several complications that would not occur in an ordinary traffic accident. For example, apportionment of fault and the exchange of insurance information are components of almost every traffic accident, yet would be nearly impossible to resolve quickly without an actual person behind the wheel of the car.

Injury Insurance for Uber Drivers

In May of 2017, Uber launched a pilot insurance program for its drivers in several states across the country. The optional program allows drivers to purchase injury insurance through Uber's insurance partners at a low rate that covers their medical expenses and lost wages if they suffer injuries on the job. As part of the initiative, Uber has raised rates in the states where the program is available to off set the premiums for drivers.

Avoiding Road Rage

When drivers lose control of their emotions behind the wheel, the results can be devastating. Road rage incidents can cause serious injuries, property damage, and emotional distress. Medical treatment, lost wages, and other costs add up quickly. Financial stress only adds another level of frustration to the mix.

What is Defensive Driving?

Learning how to drive defensively can help you avoid unsafe conditions and reduce your risk of accidents. When drivers are more aware of and adopt defensive driving techniques, it keeps our streets and highways safer and everyone on the road benefits. Plus, because some insurers allow you to take defensive driving courses to lower your premiums or reduce points on your license, adopting these safe driving techniques could wind up saving you money.
