Exclamation Driving News Roundup: May 19, 2016

NMA Article: Driving News Roundup: May 19, 2016

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


ASCE finds infrastructure underinvestment to cost U.S. families $3,400 a year

A new report by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) says weak infrastructure investment in the U.S. will cost the nationís families $3,400 per year for the next 10 years in lost time, inconveniences and repairs of homes and cars.


Hawaii: First state to sue Takata

Hawaii became the first state to sue Takata Corp. alleging the company knowingly sold potentially defective airbags in a suit filed May 13. The state also claims Takata covered up data showing the airbags were a danger and then delayed recalling them.


Minnesota: Homeland Security rejects request for Real ID extension

Minnesota has still not done enough work to merit an extension on complying with the federal Real ID driverís license standards, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Officials acknowledged that the state lifted its ban on planning for the federal standards but noted that it still bans implementation of the standards.


How Tolling Will Enable Driverless Cars

At some point, just as the buzz around an exciting, highly visible new innovation hits a crescendo, people begin to spot complications along the road to success. Theyíre complications, not necessarily fatal flaws, but it means someone will have to sweat the details.


Self-driving cars might cut costs but make traffic worse, researchers say

Self-driving cars are expected to usher in a new era of mobility, safety and convenience. The problem, say transportation researchers, is that people will use them too much.


Ohio: No crash increases since Springfield shut off red-light cameras

One year after a new law forced Springfield to shut off its red-light cameras and city leaders feared crashes would increase, traffic data shows that hasnít been the case.


Louisiana: Red-Light cameras drawing increasing opposition from advocacy groups

New Orleans is one of many cities facing lawsuits for red-light camera use. A group of residents claim the cameras violate both the United States Constitution and New Orleans Home Rule Charter. A recent class-action suit in Jefferson Parish against the cameras was successful, with the class members receiving partial refunds. As for an alternative solution, the National Motorists Association suggests increasing the time for yellow lights.


Big Rigs Will Drive the Autonomous Vehicle Movement

There’s been a lot of discussion lately about the partnerships between automakers and tech companies†to produce self-driving vehicles and how that will impact our car- and truck-loving universe. We tend to think†that this is a lot of worry over an issue that won’t come to fruition for several decades.
