Drowsy driving, and what can be done about it

As the National Sleep Foundation has announced its annual Drowsy Driving Prevention Week for Nov.1 to 8, 2020, drivers across Nevada may want to take a second look at the impact that drowsiness can have on their behavior behind the wheel. In its effect, drowsiness is similar to alcohol intoxication as it impairs drivers' attention, ability to assess risks and reaction times. Being awake for over 20 consecutive hours is like having a BAC of .08.

AAA survey: self-driving cars are far from public acceptance

Nevada residents who are excited about the advent of self-driving cars should know that there are several concerns that keep the majority of the U.S. public from accepting them. AAA conducted a survey in January 2020 asking consumers if they would feel safe riding in a self-driving car, and only 12% answered in the affirmative. Twenty-eight percent admitted they don't know what to think about self-driving cars in the first place.

Easy ways to stay safe while riding

Riding a motorcycle can be an exciting hobby for Nevada residents to take up. However, it is important that those who do understand how to do so safely. New riders are encouraged to take safety courses that will help them learn important riding skills. In some cases, these courses can be taken online, and individuals might be entitled to a discount on their motorcycle insurance by taking part in them.

Bill to allow interstate travel to all truckers meets opposition

Nevada and all other states with the exception of Hawaii allow individuals as young as 18 to obtain a CDL for intrastate travel, opening the possibility for interstate travel when they turn 21. Now, a bipartisan bill introduced in February 2019 is proposing that even truckers under 21 be allowed to travel interstate.
