How many people fall asleep behind the wheel?

Have you ever nodded off behind the wheel? Maybe you didn't fully fall asleep, per se, but you suddenly jerked your head up and opened your eyes. You felt your heart start pounding as you realized that, at least for a split second, you were out -- and the car was still moving.

Officer gives driving tips after 10-car crash

When the news stations in Phoenix began to talk about a recent pile-up, they started by staying that 20 cars were involved. A police officer got on the line to do an interview with them, and he quickly pointed out that it was actually 10 different cars. While that is a much smaller wreck, it still shows just how massive a chain-reaction crash can be.

A self-driving car got involved in a deadly accident back in March of last year, and officials with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are still investigating the case. This is the first such fatal accident and, with self-driving technology likely the future of modern transportation, they want to leave no stone unturned.

How likely is your car to roll?

You have to think about a lot of different safety issues when buying a new or used car. You probably consider tech options, like lane-departure warning systems and airbags. You probably consider the sheer size of the vehicle and how well it will fair when colliding with a different car or truck on the road.

Just let those tailgaters pass

When someone starts tailgating you, it is all too easy to get angry. You may even be tempted to do something aggressive yourself, like suddenly hitting the brakes -- known as "brake-checking" the other driver. You may simply start driving slowly to make them angrier and more frustrated than they were before.
