Sadly, a recent Pompano Beach traffic accident involving a Honda Accord and two Suzuki motorcycles claimed the lives of the riders and left the driver of the Accord seriously injured. In 2012, automobile occupants were 26 times less likely to die in a traffic accident per vehicle mile traveled than motorcyclists, according to the Insurance Information Institute. According to the Miami Herald, the incident took place on a Saturday night around 9 p.m. on Interstate 95 near Atlantic Boulevard. Leading up to the wreck, a 44-year-old woman was driving a Honda Accord southbound on I-95 when she lost control of her car and veered into the median. When the Accord veered into the median, a 54-year-old motorcyclist riding a Suzuki motorcycle on I-95 veered left to avoid it, struck the median wall and was ejected from his bike as a result. The motorcyclist was taken to Broward Health North for...

If you drive a 2014 or 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you should be aware that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has issued a recall of 230,000 vehicles worldwide due to a software bug that can cause the airbag to deploy unintentionally.

The SUV will normally inflate the side airbags when the computer detects that the vehicle is about to roll over; however, in certain circumstances, drivers are facing the unexpected inflation of these airbags, which can cause a rapid and dangerous distraction leading to a real crash and potential injuries or wrongful death.

And speaking of defective airbags, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a separate recall affecting over two million Honda and Toyota vehicles. These vehicles were previously subjected to a recall due to faulty crash sensors produced by the auto parts supplier TRW, but the manufacturers were reportedly unable to correct the issue.

Over one million of the vehicles involved in the NHTSA recall had been recalled before due to faulty Takata airbags. We wrote about these airbags in December 2014, when metal fragments exploding outward due to an issue with the airbag's propellant killed a Florida woman. Her injuries were so severe that investigators originally thought a homicide had occurred.

The vehicles involved in the NHTSA recall are as follows: Acura MDX, Dodge Viper, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Liberty, Honda Odyssey, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix and Toyota Avalon, model years 2002 through 2004. It is vitally important that owners of these vehicles contact their dealers to have the issues rectified.

The bridge tender will reply to the boat's request via radio or by sounding the bridge's horn. The bridge tender will alert motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians that the bridge is about to be raised with traffic lights and bells.
