Holiday Driving Tips

During the holidays we typically find ourselves rushing from one mall to the next frantically trying to fulfill our christmas gift list.  This distracted driving combined with the worst weather of the year adds up to an increase in personal injury auto accidents.  So it is very important to drive defensively and cautiously during the month of December.

San Diego Personal Injury Attorney
As a San Diego Personal Injury Attorney, I am often asked to give advice on what types of inusrance coverage someone should buy. Here are my helpful tips: 1. Buy as much insurance that protects you personally. This includes uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist (don't forget that we live on the border of Mexico and there are thousands of people driving without insurance or with only the minimum) this type of coverage pays YOU when you are injured in an accident that is not your fault. 2. Medical Payments is another important one that is overlooked. This is a no-fault coverage that will pick up the slack and gaps in your health insurance and help protect your credit when in an accident by picking up bills right away prior to settlement. 3. Gap Insurance for your newly purchased auto. It is important to realise that when you drive off the lot, your car diminishes by 33%. If you are then in a San Diego Auto Accident, and your car is totalled, then the other side's insurance only has to give you the replacement value of your car, meaning 66% of what you just paid! The Gap Insurance will cover this 33% gap on your loan. Drive safe and keep on eye out for my next San Diego Personal Injury Attorney blog update! Law Offices of Robert B.

Driving in the rain can be dangerous; in fact thousands of car accidents each year are caused by wet driving conditions.

Routinely Check Your Tires

It is a good idea to always check your tires before you hit the road. To ensure your tires are working at their best, make sure you do the following routine maintenance:

 

Keep your tires properly inflated. The correct air pressure for your tires is specified by the vehicle manufacturer and can be found on the vehicle door edge, door post, glove box door or fuel door. It is also listed in the owner's manual. The number listed on the side of the tire is not the recommended air pressure for your tire -- it is the maximum air pressure for the tire. You should check your tire's air pressure at least once a month.

Check the tires tread depth. Tires should have 1/16 inch tread depth in order to perform the in the way for which they were designed. Proper tread depth will help prevent skids and hydroplaning.

Have your tires rotated at least every 6,000 - 7,000 miles. This will aid in detecting alignment problems and help prevent irregular wear.

Slow Down

As rain falls, it mixes with grime and oil on the road creating slick conditions perfect for skids. The best way to avoid skidding is to slow down. Driving at a slower pace allows more of the tire's tread to make contact with the road, which leads to better traction.

Recover From a Skid

Skids can even happen to the most cautious drivers. If your car does skid, remember not to slam on the brakes, and do not pump the brakes if you have an anti-lock braking system (ABS). Instead apply pressure to the brakes in a firm manner and steer the car in the direction of the skid.

Keep a Safe Distance

It takes about three times longer to break on wet roads than on dry roads. Since more distance is required to brake, it is important not to tailgate. Keep more than two car lengths between you and the vehicle in front of you.

Recover from Hydroplaning

When it rains, water creates a barrier between the road and your tires. The liquid film that forms can cause you to lose traction and glide or hydroplane across the water's surface. If this happens, do not brake. It is better to take your foot off the gas, hold the steering wheel in place, and lightly apply the brakes. If you have a manual transmission, push in the clutch and let the car slow down on its own. Lastly, always hire the best San Diego Lawyer

LONDON/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission unconditionally approved a merger between record companies Sony Music and BMG but warned on Tuesday that it would look closely at any further proposed consolidation in the industry.

The deal creates a rival to market leader Universal Music and shrinks the number of music majors to four companies from five. Vivendi-owned Universal and Sony BMG, as the new company is to be called, account for about 46 percent of music sold worldwide.

"The Commission will keep a close watch on the music sector as it becomes even more concentrated and would very carefully scrutinize any further major concentration in the industry," EC officials said in a statement.

Because Sony BMG will become the second company besides Universal Music to have more than 20 percent market share, industry executives and sector analysts say the two smaller rivals, EMI Group and Warner Music, might need to merge to keep up.

Despite the EU's cautionary tone, Bear Stearns analysts said on Tuesday they thought EMI and Warner could pull off a deal.

"Although EMI/Warner would have a combined market share of 26 percent globally (up to 30 percent in Europe), we believe these issues could be addressed through small disposals," the analysts wrote in a note.
