Car Wrecks and Cell Phones - National Safety Council Announcement

The National Safety Council (NSC) recently announced that 1.6 million car wrecks per year are caused by drivers using cell phones or sending text messages while driving. The NSC reported that this number amounts to 28% of all car wrecks. The NSC has called for a ban on cell phone use and texting while driving to reduce the number of car crashes. The NSC reports that cell phone use causes more crashes than testing, due to the larger number of people who use phones while driving. However, the NSC notes that texting is more of a distraction and thus a larger risk for causing crashes. The NSC hopes that state and local governments will recognize the danger posed by texting as well as cell phone use, and take appropriate action to protect all drivers on the road. If you or someone you know has been involved in a car crash caused by the other driver using a cell phone or texting, please consult one of the Mundy & Singley attorneys regarding your legal rights and a potentia

In auto safety news, Toyota today announced that it would broaden a recall to fix potentially faulty accelerator pedals in various car models due to the potential for dangerous unintended acceleration caused by the pedal becoming stuck in a part-way down position or slowly returning to idle due to pedal wear. The recall applies to 2.3 million vehicles. This recall comes on top of a previous Toyota recall aimed at the potential for accelerator pedals to become stuck in floor mats, which applied to 4.2 million vehicles. The federal government had received a number of reports of runaway acceleration in Toyotas at the time of the first recall. Runaway acceleration due to design defects in automobiles poses a significant risk of injury or death from auto accidents. If you or a family member has been injured or killed in a car wreck due to a faulty accelerator pedal or other dangerous condition of an automobile, please contact one of the attorneys at Mundy & Singley, LLP for

Texans and Texas truck accident lawyers are especially concerned about trucking safety due to the number of trucks on the freeways in Texas, for example on US IH-35, which has large amounts of trucking traffic through Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas. Houston sees significant trucking traffic through US IH-10 and IH-45. Fortunately, 2009 brought good news for truck safety in Texas, which came from the U.S. Government's Department of Transportation. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which regulates trucking safety, recently began to enforce a new rule requiring higher safety standards for newly registered truck and bus companies. This is especially good news for Texans due to the number of truck accidents involving injury and death that occur in Texas. The safety standards covered by the rule include drug and alcohol testing, hours of service rules, driver qualifications, and vehicle condition.
