Since December the 1st 2003, it has been illegal to use a hand held mobile and drive at the same time. The law goes onto be more precise t by declaring it is illegal to use a hand held device that is used for reasons for written and verbal communication.

 
Although not illegal, hands free has been even declared as an distraction. But how does this relate to the Iphone and Ipod? Could these blur the lines of the law, due to their interactive nature which could be potentially distracting and hazardous?!
 
It has been an argument around for awhile. Is your Iphone or Mp3 player a device that could endanger your safety? Almost everyone is aware of the potential hazards these devices could create, and it is in fact written to legislation that you cannot use a hand-held device that has internet and email capabilities.  
 
To get into the intricacies, it is illegal to use any hand held device that is a mobile or similar when the engine is running, even when stationary – so no using even when in traffic jams.
 
The line is very blurry with especially Iphones because they have communicative as well as mp3 capabilities, making them note entirely legal to use when driving. To be safe, it is recommended overall that you handle no devices, including Mp3 players when driving as these still can distract you.
 
It's vital that you focus your attention on the road at all times, even when stationary in a traffic jam.
 
 
A device is considered distracting if it stops you from effectively driving safely. For instance, if it distracts you by taking your eyes off the road longer than they should be, that device is considered to be distracting. Noise can also be distracting as well, as it can stop you from using your hearing in order to listen to other cars and traffic, as well as the sound of your own car. Keeping any hands free conversations or music on your car mp3 player down to a good level, will help you engage all your senses in the driving process.
 
Currently, there's a few safety focused car audio entertainment options on the market, which help to avoid you getting distracted, including car Bluetooth players which allow you to control your incoming and outgoing calls via your voice, rather than the phone.  You must always take safety into your own hands too, by avoiding using devices which will distract you from driving.

AAA Clubs, consumers, and small businesses join Senator Monning
to ensure car owners control their own data, not automakers
 
SACRAMENTO, CALIF. – Today, Senator Bill Monning (D-Monterey) joined the Automobile Club of Southern California, AAA of Northern California, consumers, and business leaders to announce legislation that will provide car owners rights to control their own car data, which is being generated within their own vehicle and currently transmitted to automakers.
 
“Our cars are quickly becoming mobile computers, and while this technology provides several important benefits to consumers, it is imperative that there are basic safeguards in place to ensure consumers can decide who has access to their data,” said Monning. “The modern connected car can greatly improve safety, enhance convenience and lower costs, but it can also tell automakers other personal information that consumers should have more control over. SB 994 will provide car owners disclosure, access, and choice when it comes to their car’s information.”  
 
In 2014, one in every five new cars sold or leased is a connected car. By 2025, it is expected that 100 percent of the new cars sold will be connected. Furthermore, the U.S. Department of Transportation recently announced plans for regulations that would require all cars to communicate with each other in an effort to avoid collisions.
 
With new technology transforming the driving experience, cars are able to transmit vital information on their performance, location, and even how, when, and where people drive. With these cars, it raises important questions: 
·       Who has access to the data from your car?
·       Can you control access to your car’s information?
·       Can you choose who will receive your car’s data for the services you want?
 
SB 994 will answer these questions clearly for consumers by providing the following protections:
·       Disclosure: Ensure consumers are informed and understand what information is being collected and what is transmitted to the automaker.
·       Access: Ensure consumers have access to their car information and prohibit automakers from creating exclusive systems.
·       Choice: Ensure consumers have the right to control who can access their car information and designate other service providers to receive their information to provide needed and wanted services.
 
“On behalf of 10 million California consumers, the AAA clubs believe car owners should have basic rights in controlling their own data,” said Alice Bisno, Senior Vice President of the Automobile Club of Southern California. “Just like a smart phone or computer, consumers should be allowed to know what information is being collected and decide who has access to their information. As more cars become connected cars, and as more information gets transmitted to carmakers, this issue needs to be addressed now.”
 
Last year, AAA surveyed their members and other consumers. 79 percent of the respondents agreed that “consumers always should be able to decide if information generated about their car can be shared and with whom.” 85 percent believed that we should have “laws to protect consumers’ right to their car information.”
 
In the next few weeks, SB 994 will be considered by a Senate policy committee.

New seat designs have additional features such as adjustable upper belts, seat belt pretensioner, energy management features, and rear center seat lap/shoulder belts. Adjustable upper belts let you change the position of the shoulder strap to accommodate a person's size. Pretensioners, on the other hand, retract the seatbelt to remove excess slack, almost instantly, in a crash. However, you still to adjust your seat belt so that it fits as snugly as possible, since pretensioners are not powerful enough to pull you back into your seat in the event of an impact.
