Exclamation Driving News Roundup: May 26, 2016

NMA Article: Driving News Roundup: May 26, 2016

This is a regular feature on the NMA Blog, where we highlight some of the most interesting driving news stories of the week.

Pennsylvania: Should distracted driving penalties be similar to those for DUI?

Motorcycle rights activists rallied at the Pennsylvania State Capitol on Monday for a bill that would enhance penalties for distracted driving. House Bill 853 would allow additional sentences of up to five years when distracted drivers hurt or kill someone. The goal is to bring distracted driving penalties in line with those for DUI.

Letís Use Self-Driving Cars to Fix Americaís Busted Infrastructure

An entire sector of the federal government is held hostage by the last century. The death spiral of the gas tax, and the other broken user-fees, demand we reform federal transportation funding, harness emerging technology, and guide the autonomous vehicle revolution.

Are live drivers too scared to merge with self-driving cars?

We are seeing a steady growth in innovation across the autonomous car sector, but public perception towards self-driving is still very hesitant, according to a new study. The drivers that answered the survey, conducted by the University of Michigan, still prefer a car with no self-driving capabilities to a partial self-driving car or a fully driverless vehicle.

Feds flash their badges on auto data

On the morning of Feb. 12, a collection of the auto industry’s leading cybersecurity experts gathered at a sprawling FBI complex in Quantico, Va., to meet with an elite digital SWAT team called the Operational Technology Division. Leaders of the division explained that they were interested in capturing connected-car data for investigations and outlined the requisite legal process.

Hacking fears grow as cars become more high tech

Itís no longer the stuff of science fiction: cars zipping down the highway with no driver behind the wheel. Researchers in the Triangle are playing a key role in developing this new technology, but they point out one thing standing in the way of this becoming commonplace on the roads is the susceptibility of cars to hacking.

Accident vs. Crash ó Why does the lingo matter?

Roadway fatalities are soaring at a rate not seen in 50 years, resulting from crashes, collisions and other incidents caused by drivers. Just don’t call them accidents anymore. That is the position of a growing number of safety advocates campaigning to change a 100-year-old mentality that they say trivializes the single most common cause of traffic incidents: human error.

Louisiana: Bill for red-light camera warning passes; but watch out for those speed cameras

A bill that would make sure every red-light camera in the state is clearly marked, is on its way to the Governor’s desk, but it did not include similar rules for cameras that catch speeders. The House voted 88-1 in favor of making sure drivers have advance warning. The bill had already passed the Senate.

Iowa: Ames Slowing Motorists Without Red-Light, Speed Cameras

The City of Ames has addressed problems of excessive speed in the city, not with a speed trap or ticketing cameras, but with something called dynamic feedback signs. The signs track each vehicles’ speed and display it below the road’s posted speed limit. This is viewed as a gentle reminder to slow down in residential and one business neighborhoods in Ames.
