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.

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.

A wakeup call about drowsy driving

You might think driving drowsy is an inconvenient fact of life. You have a busy schedule and you do not always get as much sleep as you should, so you grab a cup of coffee before your morning commute and turn up the music to help you stay awake. Unfortunately, common methods of avoiding drowsiness behind the wheel do not always work, especially if you drive longer distances. At the law office of McGlynn, Glisson & Mouton, we feel it is important to let you and other Louisiana residents know about the prevalent danger of drowsy driving.

Car collisions and PTSD

When it comes to auto accident consequences, some are evident right away, such as a broken bone or fatality. However, it is essential to bear in mind that some consequences may not be noticeable until some point in the future, such as mental scars, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. If you think that you have developed PTSD due to a motor vehicle wreck, our law firm is very familiar with the unique challenges you could be experiencing and we believe it is essential for you to move forward.

Studies not conclusive on impact of ride-sharing on drunk driving

More parents admitting to distracted driving

When one thinks of a distracted driver, it is easy to think about a young driver who is fixated on the texts coming in on their phone, even if they are driving down the highway at 65 miles-per-hour or driving down a busy street. However, distracted drivers in Louisiana come in all ages and drive many different types of vehicles, from compact cars to semi-trucks.
