Are seat belts required on California's school buses?

California Vehicle Code (VC), Section 27316 requires that all newly manufactured school buses have shoulder/lap belts installed on them by their manufacturer before they can be used to transport passengers. This law covers both Type 1 and 2 buses with manufacture dates of July 1, 2005 or July 1, 2004, respectively.

Why vehicles are recalled, and what happens if I'm hurt by one?

The responsibility of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is to both set safety standards and to issue recalls of any vehicles believed to pose of a risk of injury to the consumer. These responsibilities were first signed into law as part of the National Traffic and Motor Safety Act of 1966.

The least dangerous routes and times for your California commute

If you're hoping to decrease your likelihood of having a serious accident or even a fender bender, you may find one of the apparent solutions somewhat counter-intuitive. Most drivers likely assume that crowded, heavy-traffic areas during rush hour are the worst places to be. In fact, though, data from a recent study indicates that the opposite may actually be true, at least on the interstates and roads in the Bay Area, and it likely holds true throughout the entire state of California and beyond.
