Driving tips to prevent accidents in the winter

In North Carolina, winter generally tends to be mild. However, this puts many drivers at risk when the temperatures do drop and cause ice to form on the roads.

BMW recalls 1 million vehicles over fire concerns

About 1 million BMW owners around the country can expect to receive recall notices in the coming weeks. Two recalls involving vehicles produced by German carmaker between 2006 and 2011 were announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Nov. 2. The cars and SUVs are being recalled to remedy issues that have been linked to a series of fires. BMW says that its dealers in North Carolina and throughout the U.S. will begin performing the needed repairs at no charge on Dec. 18.

Study links poor surface friction to slip and falls

CNA Financial Corporation has released a Slip and Fall Study Report, which should be of interest to business owners across North Carolina.

NHTSA to develop safety guidelines for self-driving cars

In early October, a Senate committee approved a bill that could speed up the manufacturing and testing of self-driving cars. It allows the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to exempt automakers from meeting certain safety standards and allow them to deploy up to 80,000 self-driving cars annually for the next three years. In September, the House of Representatives passed a similar measure. The bill has been called a landmark in legislation, with the support of corporations like General Motors and Ford Motor Company, but North Carolina motorists should know that there are some hurdles involved.
