car accidents, ride-sharing accidents, car accident case, following a car accident, car accident injuriesRide-sharing services like Uber and Lyft are becoming increasingly popular throughout Chicagoland, and many DuPage County residents also rely on ride-sharing apps instead of calling a taxi. Indeed, it is often much more convenient to log into your Uber app to arrange for a car in many different situations, whether you are meeting friends or coworkers for an evening out, or if you want to avoid parking at Chicago O’Hare or Midway airports.

An article in Crain’s Chicago Business tracked Uber usage throughout the Chicago area, emphasizing that younger and more affluent people are the most likely to use ride-sharing services. The bottom line is this: there are many more Uber and Lyft drivers than ever before. With more ride-sharing apps and vehicles on the road, car accidents can happen with Uber or Lyft drivers. What should you do if you were involved in a crash with an Uber driver? In other words, what steps do you need to take if an Uber or Lyft driver was careless or reckless and crashed into your motor vehicle? In most cases, the steps you should take are similar to those in any car accident case.

DuPage County auto accident lawyer, automated car features, reduce car accidents,  automated technology, motor vehicle crashesAutomated vehicle technologies are designed to reduce serious and fatal car accidents, but do they actually work? We are not referring here to fully automated vehicles, but rather to technologies that already are in a high percentage of cars on the road, such as adaptive cruise control or a lane-departure warning system.

According to a recent article in The Drive, automation that removes human error from driving could one day help decrease accidents that killed more than 40,000 Americans last year. However, that statement assumes that drivers in DuPage County and throughout the country not only are willing to use automated technology, but that they also understand how it works and are using it properly.

Otherwise, according to a study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), automated technology could end up having no impact at all on the rate of motor vehicle collisions. What do you need to know about the benefits and limitations of automated vehicle technology?

avoiding car accidents, DuPage County car accident lawyer, car crashes, traffic collisions, car technologyAs a recent article in Slate highlights, the number of serious and deadly car accidents in the country has risen in the last decade despite the fact that automobiles are getting “smarter” and that technology has only continued to improve. Indeed, as the article notes, the 8 percent rise in motor vehicle crash fatalities in 2015 was the “largest in 50 years,” and by 2016 the number had risen again to more than 40,000 annual traffic fatalities. While technology within automobiles might not be able to prevent crashes in some circumstances, it can provide us with more information about the reasons that car accidents happen. That kind of knowledge may help DuPage County drivers to avoid serious and fatal crashes.

“Naturalistic Driving Studies” and the Role of Technology in Car Crash Knowledge

In 2008, a study conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan sought to use different kinds of technology to determine the actual causes of car crashes by installing devices in thousands of vehicles to produce “naturalistic driving studies.” The study caught on with other researchers and commentators interested in getting to the root of the specific causes of auto accidents. To be clear, such studies “are now equipping cars with accelerometers, sonar, sensors that track river inputs, and lots of video cameras.” Drivers who participate in the study agree to do so, and to drive with vehicles equipped with the tools we just mentioned.
