What should you know about Tesla’s Autopilot feature?

You may have heard about the groundbreaking feature in Tesla automobiles called Autopilot. This system helps drivers change lanes and brake more safely and accurately. It can also assist them in backing out and parallel parking, and even pick them up without a driver from a location close by. This technology is amazing, you might think, and you would be right. However, you and other Louisiana residents should understand that new technologies are rarely without limitations.

Hospitals put patients at risk by “dumping” them

Residents of Louisiana, as well as the rest of the country, expect a certain level of care when they go to the hospital. It is not unreasonable to expect to be treated with respect and dignity, whether the diagnosis or prognosis is good or bad. Sadly, it would seem that there is a trend among some hospitals to discharge patients before it is medically or physically safe to do so, regardless of a law that is supposed to protect patients from this type of treatment.

When commercial trucks hit passenger vehicles, tragedy ensues

Most people understand that there's an element of risk involved in riding in or driving a motor vehicle. Even if you are a very cautious driver, you can always end up in a collision caused by someone else's mistake or negligence. Any crash has the potential to be quite dangerous, but when a commercial truck hits a passenger vehicle, the results can be tragic.

Determining fault in drunk driving accidents

When someone is involved in a collision with a drunk driver in Louisiana, he or she may immediately think that the drunk driver caused the accident. This may not always be the case, though. It is important to understand how fault is determined in a drunk driving accident.

What are the consequences of texting while driving in Louisiana?

As a Louisiana driver, you probably know that it has been illegal to text while driving since 2008. What you may not be aware of, however, is that as of last June, the fines associated with texting while driving increased dramatically. Hands Free Info advises that if a law enforcement officer catches you texting while behind the wheel and this if your first offense, you will face a $500 fine. That fine will increase to $1,000 each subsequent time you are caught texting while driving.
