Study finds drivers engage in many distracting behaviors

Some Ohio drivers may disapprove of others using cell phones while driving, but it might not stop them from doing so themselves. This was one of the findings of a survey conducted by Root Insurance, a company that gives discounts to drivers who set aside their phones while driving.

Ohio readers may be concerned to learn that the automatic emergency braking, or AEB, systems on some 2017-2018 Nissan Rogues appear to be malfunctioning, according to an automobile safety group. As a result, the vehicles could come to a sudden emergency stop and cause a serious car accident.

States consider device that checks cellphone use after accident

Data regarding whether cellphones were a factor in motor vehicle accidents may be improved in Ohio if a new technology that checks phone activity is widely adopted by law enforcement. Nevada and New York are two states where the legislature has considered a device called the "textalyzer."

Daylight saving time and motor vehicle accidents

On March 10, Ohio residents set their clocks one hour forward. This unfortunately means getting one fewer hour of sleep for many people. Official guidelines issued by the American Automobile Association advise drivers to get enough sleep before heading out on roads and highways. Experts recommend seven to eight hours of sleep every night. According to a recent AAA study, an overwhelming 95 percent of drivers stated that it's dangerous to drive without getting enough sleep. Despite this prevailing belief, nearly 30 percent of study respondents also admitted to driving their vehicles while significantly drowsy within the prior month.

How speed limiters could address rise in truck crashes

Road Safe America has looked at federal data on large truck crashes from 2009 to 2017, finding that there was an increase in large truck crash deaths in all but six states. A total of 35,882 people died in such crashes in that eight-year period. Ohio residents should know that the highway safety non-profit advises truck fleet owners to incorporate vehicle safety technology as a way to address the trend.

Survey shows texting, emailing while driving on the rise

More Ohio drivers might be using their phones to text and send emails while behind the wheel. However, it is still not clear whether this means that deaths from distracted driving are on the rise. Knowing whether a crash was caused by a distracted driver usually relies on someone in the accident self-reporting or investigators being able to examine drivers' phones. This can make gathering reliable data difficult.

Ridesharing drivers run risk of sleep deprivation

Many ridesharing drivers in Ohio choose to work during extended periods of wakefulness. However, sleep deprivation can affect one's circadian rhythm and make the early mornings and late nights an especially dangerous time for driving. Unfortunately, ridesharing drivers can feel compelled by salary incentives to underrate sleep and keep working.

Some truck drivers fighting roadway fatigue with stimulants

Truck drivers in Ohio and across the rest of the country are under increased pressure to meet hauling deadlines at all hours of the day. This type of demanding work, especially when extensive driving of long distances is required, can contribute to driver fatigue. Due to the weight and size of trucks, the victims in these accidents tend to be people in other vehicles, passengers and nearby pedestrians or cyclists.

Car accidents are a leading cause of death

Ohio residents spend a good portion of their lives on or near streets and highways. Motor vehicles have become the standard mode of transportation in the United States, and it is difficult to completely avoid interacting with them either as a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian.
