Waymo Van Involved in Accident in Chandler Arizona

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento self-driving car accident lawyer. A recent accident in Chandler, Arizona, between a Waymo autonomous vehicle and a Honda sedan resulted in injury to the human operator of the self-driving car. Details about the accident were sketchy at first, but later, police confirmed that the car was in manual mode when the collision occurred. Reportedly, the Honda tried to avoid a collision with another vehicle and ended up striking the driverless car.

$452 million Project to Improve Hwy 50 to Start in 2019

I’m Ed Smith, a car accident and personal injury lawyer in Sacramento. Commuters fighting the traffic getting to the downtown area will be in for a sweeter commute in the future thanks to officials from the state highway and light rail as well as local environmentalists. A plan has been agreed upon to allocate $452 million toward making changes to Highway 50 by adding 50 new HOV lanes and adding light rail service during peak commuter hours. At the current time, carpool lanes start in the hilly area at El Dorado County and stop at Watt Avenue. According to Caltrans, those lanes will be extended into West Sacramento to Pioneer Bridge. The local director said the project will also include adding sound walls along the areas around 65th Street and Stockton Boulevard.

Project Is Slated to Start Next Year

Company Denies Defective RV Tire Claims

Company Denies Defective RV Tires Claims

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Defective Tire Accident Lawyer. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is denying claims about a defect in their tires. Recently, the tire company denied allegations that defective RV tires are linked to 95 cases involving deaths and serious injuries. The claims are being investigated by federal regulators. In December 2017, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into allegations that Goodyear G159 tires were not intended for prolonged use at high speeds on RVs. When the tires are put on motorhomes traveling at above 65 miles per hour, they were likely to fail and result in the loss of vehicle control.
