The hits just keep on coming for motor vehicle air bags

Back in the day when AM radio was king, someone coined the phrase "The hits just keep on coming." It became a hallmark of certain stations across the nation, including in Texas. When you tuned in, you knew you would get the top hit songs for whatever genre of music you happened to favor. That was a good thing.

Is there an autonomous motorcycle in our future?

Earlier this summer we wrote a couple of items about self-driving vehicles. One featured the fact that Daimler is now licensed to test a nearly autonomous 18-wheeler truck. The one before that was focused on the efforts being made to develop fully independent, driverless cars.

Motorcycle safety: Sometimes how you look at the issue is key

Some people like change and embrace it with an enthusiasm that is sometimes hard to swallow. On the other extreme are those who dread change as if each slight shift is a 180-degree turn that spells the end of the world.

Trucker in crash that killed 6 declared 'imminent hazard'

You don't often hear the term "imminent hazard to public safety" applied to a vehicle driver -- much less a semitractor-trailer driver. But that is the tag applied to one commercial hauler.

If injury costs exceed coverage limits, there may be options

A lot of people don't like paying for car or medical insurance. If they aren't sick or don't have an accident, they reason why pay for insurance. In the best of circumstances, they'll never make a claim and receive benefits. And even if they do, they might hold the view that there's the very likely prospect they'll have to fight to get the insurance company to fulfill its obligations.

Dodge Chargers with touchy air bags being recalled

There's an oldie goldie by the late singer Jim Croce that carries a refrain about things you should never do. Things like not tugging on Superman's cape and spitting into the wind. We're not sure what would happen if you tugged on that cape, but anyone who's ever been guilty of breaking that second law knows it can get messy.
