AAA study highlights the benefits of truck safety technology

The lives of 500 road users in Ohio and around the country could be saved each year if all tractor-trailers were fitted with the latest safety equipment and systems according to a study released recently by the Automobile Association of America's Foundation for Traffic Safety. AAA researchers came to this conclusion after studying the impact that lane departure alerts, air disc brakes, video-based monitoring technology and automatic emergency braking systems would have on road safety. They based their casualty estimates on figures gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2015 when 400,000 truck crashes claimed more than 4,000 lives and caused roughly 116,000 injuries.

Safety precautions could mitigate risks of holiday road trips

Ohio residents who plan on traveling over Thanksgiving may want to know more about the dangers of holiday road trips. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data, roadway fatalities peak on Thanksgiving and drop only slightly over the winter. The most recent statistics available from NHTSA's Fatality Analysis Reporting System indicate that the Thanksgiving holiday may be a deadly time to take to the road.

Tips for a safe Black Friday

Black Friday has become something of a safety risk for quite a few of the people who venture out in search of good deals. Not only do crowded parking lots increase the risk of pedestrians being hit and cars hitting each other, shoppers are packed into stores and tempers may flare.

Poor slip resistance leads to slip and falls, study shows

Floors produce what is called a dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) level, and higher ones denote better slip resistance. In a CNA study of slip-and-fall accidents, researchers found that 50 percent of the surveyed sites had floors that did not pass the minimum DCOF threshold of 0.42, which was set by the American National Standards Institute. This should give some business owners in Ohio and across the US cause for concern.
