Does Autopilot Absolve Someone From Drunk Driving?

These seem to be everywhere: Advertisements, online reports, news stories and blogs all about the developing automated vehicle technology. Some of the new technology is simple driving assistance, and other manufacturers are already going to full automated driving: "Autopilot."

Tennessee's changing school bus laws: are they enough?

After the horrific Chattanooga school bus crash that claimed the lives of six children in 2016, there has been much debate over school bus safety statewide. Countless parents and lawmakers alike have begun to question whether bus drivers have taken proper safety measures while on the job in the past. Fortunately, Tennessee laws have changed since this tragic accident. Yet are those changes big enough to make a difference?  

Tennessee's bicycling safety practices and the law

As some cities in Tennessee continue to see major population booms, bicyclists from near and far are drawn to the state's pristine valleys and majestic mountain views. Cycling is certainly a healthy choice of exercise, as well as a cheaper option than driving to work or school. Yet does the congestion of city traffic and placing trust in distracted drivers make this choice in exercise a safe one? 

Reviewing Tennessee's hand signal laws

As a motorcyclist in Shelby, you know full well just how difficult it can be to share the road with other vehicles. Like many of those that we here at The Gold Law Firm have assisted in the past, your difficulties may not be due to your own driving tendencies, but rather those of other motorists. Drivers sometimes tend to overlook motorcyclists and not respect their place on the road. When accidents involving such drivers do happen, they often tend to deflect the blame on to the motorcyclists, claiming that they were recklessly weaving in and out of traffic without warning. You should be prepared to counter such a claim. 

Drunk driving potentially involved in fatal crash

Many people in Tennessee have a heightened awareness about the dangers of drunk driving during the New Year's holiday time. This risk, however, is also prevalent during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday time as people commonly attend family gatherings, business parties and other social functions where alcohol is served as part of the holiday merriment. They then get in their cars or other vehicles and attempt to drive home safely.
