The hidden costs of a car accident


Owning a car in southern California is a luxury that many people take for granted, until they stop and think about how much it costs to own and drive a car. Of course, most drivers in California also know that without their car, they may not be able to get where they need to be.

Former cop heads back to trial after fatal DUI crash


People in San Diego may have heard about a recent controversial court ruling that set a former police officer, who was responsible for causing a car accident that resulted in the death of a 20-year-old in 2011, free on bail. The former officer, a 53-year-old woman, allegedly slammed her vehicle into the back of the victim's car, sending the man's car spinning out of control and ultimately over a steep embankment. After tumbling end-over-end down a 350-foot hill, two passengers in the victim's vehicle were able to escape by kicking out the back windows and scrambling up the hill for help. The driver, though, was unable to be saved and died from his injuries. After an investigation, police found the officer had been driving at over 90 miles-per-hour at the time of the crash, and had a blood alcohol content of .14 percent, nearly twice the legal limit in California.

Distracted drivers shouldn't get a free pass


Traffic accidents happen in the blink of an eye, which is why every California driver needs to be able to devote their full attention to the task of arriving at their destination safely and without incident. Unfortunately, the distractions posed by cell phones and handheld devices can distract drivers from the task at hand, increasing the likelihood of car crashes, property damage, injuries and even death. Because of the risks involved in such actions - and the devastating consequences that go along with them - regulations and penalties have been put into place to discourage distracted driving.
