Army Researchers Use Eye Tests to Screen for Concussions

Army researchers are using a simple, quick and cheap eye test to screen for concussions. According to the Army, many people suffering from concussions develop temporary vision problems. This test will identify people suffering from such vision problems. One of the great things about military research, is that it can be applied to the general population. Could this test one day show up on high school football fields?

Can Pokémon Go Endanger Your Safety?: A popular new smartphone app is causing concerns among transportation officials across the country. Unlike other video game apps, Pokémon Go uses smartphone cameras to bring the game to life. Pokémon was a popular animated television show and handheld video game in the late 1990s. However, many Pokémon Go players are adults playing for nostalgic value. Pokémon Go requires players to interact with the game environment by getting up and moving around in the real world. Players can then interact with the Pokémon and capture them using pokéballs. Pokémon Go also uses GPS to interact with other players and Pokémon. The game requires players to travel around local locations collecting Pokémon. For example, Charizard could be hanging out in front of a local Starbucks, requiring players to go to that location to capture the fire-breathing Pokémon. Why does this game pose possible dangers to players? The risks are apparent if...

Although Pokemon Go became wildly successful two weeks ago, the popular app may pose dangers to players.

The One Surprising Reason You Should Never Speed in Colorado: If you live in Colorado and have a heavy foot while driving, you may want to spend some time reading today’s blog. Speeding can cause rollovers, loss of control and is certain to increase the severity of car accidents. However, speeding has other risk factors that are especially problematic in our state. Speeding can shorten the response time needed to avoid wildlife. In fact, Colorado Parks and Wildlife lists collisions with wildlife as a major cause of car accidents in our state. Speeding is a major cause of wildlife collisions. Statistics collected by the Colorado Department of Transportation claim our state sees an average of 3,300 collisions with wildlife every year (excluding collisions not reported to law enforcement). In some cases, collisions with wildlife can be fatal or cause catastrophic injuries. Why Collisions with Wildlife Can Be Fatal How much damage can wildlife do to vehicles and motorists? It would...

Why Parents Should Pay Attention to the New IKEA Recall: After six children suffered fatal injuries from tip-over accidents involving IKEA’s MALM dressers, the multibillion dollar furniture company has issued a recall. Three of the deaths, which involved children around 2 years old, occurred within the last several years. Parents should pay close attention to the IKEA recall because of the threat dangerous furniture can pose to small children. Tip-over accidents are exactly what the name implies; incidents where large pieces of furniture fall onto unsuspecting people. Some accidents happened when small children attempted to climb IKEA’s MALM dressers. The recall involves 29 million dressers, which can fall over if not securely attached to the wall. After two deaths in 2014, IKEA began to sell its MALM dressers with wall-mounting kits to prevent tip-over accidents. Unfortunately, these kits were unable to prevent additional deaths and injuries. Earlier this year, a third child died from a tip-over accident. Another 36 tip-over...

Recent Accident Shows Dangers Caused by Distracted Truck Drivers: Distracted truck drivers can endanger the safety of other motorists. However, distractions do not always involve mobile phones or devices. For example, truckers can become distracted by fidgeting with their radios or eating behind the wheel. Unfortunately, distracted commercial drivers frequently cause serious car accidents. We can use a recent truck accident that occurred in Golden, Colorado, as an example. A distracted truck driver recently caused a three-vehicle accident that severely injured a Florida family. Colorado law enforcement claims the distracted driver was unable to slow down his truck in time to avoid colliding with the other two vehicles. Due to the severity of the accident, two young children suffered serious injuries. The accident also injured three other motorists. Colorado State Patrol troopers have claimed something other than a mobile phone or device distracted the driver. Why Inattentive Commercial Drivers Are a Major Cause of Truck Accidents According to the...

Tesla Model S Accident Raises Doubts About Self-Driving Technology: A fatal car accident involving a Tesla Model S has raised questions about the safety of vehicles with automatic driving features. Tesla’s Model S uses Autopilot, a built-in feature that utilizes cameras and sensors to guide vehicles and apply brakes. Why did the Tesla Model S accident happen? According to Tesla, the accident happened because Autopilot could not tell the difference between a brightly lit sky and the side of a white semi-truck approaching the Model S from a perpendicular position. Autopilot did not apply the brakes and instead attempted to drive under the semi-truck, killing the passenger. If Autopilot could not accurately tell the difference between the side of a semi-truck and the sky, it would confirm concerns critics have voiced about self-driving technology. Why Self-Driving Cars Need More Testing Tesla is not the only auto manufacturer racing to create self-driving technology. The Guardian recently published an article discussing...

Defensive Cycling Techniques That May Save Your Life: Summer is considered one of the best seasons to take up cycling, an effective mode of transportation and a healthy hobby. However, there are certain risks cyclists can face from negligent drivers and other hazards. Due to the risks, cyclists should learn defensive cycling techniques. The following defensive cycling techniques might help cyclists prevent accidents. Become the most visible person on the road: The best defensive cycling technique of all is to assume that nobody can see you. Make yourself stand out by wearing bright clothing, riding a brightly colored bicycle or by using reflective tape. Reflective tape is especially helpful at nighttime, as it bounces light from oncoming vehicles. You can put reflective tape almost anywhere, including on your bike or clothing. The Colorado Department of Transportation recommends using blinking headlights and taillights at night. Keep in mind, riding in large groups, even single file, is another great way...

Click-It-Or-Ticket Isn’t Just a Catchphrase: The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Colorado State Patrol, and 89 other state agencies recently finished carrying out a seat belt enforcement campaign. During the course of the campaign, state law enforcement wrote 5,983 citations, including 295 involving children! Transportation officials and law enforcement found these numbers worrying, as seat belts are essential to surviving a car accident. Seat belts are especially important for child passengers, who depend on their parents to set an example. According to CDOT, seat belts were responsible for saving 169 lives in Colorado in 2014. National Highway of Traffic Safety Administration statistics estimate that seat belts increase the risk of surviving a car accident by 50 percent for both drivers and passengers. Why do seat belts work? It comes down to the laws of physics. Why Seat Belts Save Lives We can use the top speed allowed in Colorado (75 mph) to explain why seat...

Planning a Road Trip This Summer? Beware of Drowsy Driving: Summer is the season where families take road trips to vacation spots and college students make long drives home. However, many people do not plan for the prospect of falling asleep at the wheel. Long periods of driving and lack of sleep can become a dangerous combination, not just for you, but for other motorists. People experiencing drowsiness while driving have a decrease in alertness, delayed reaction time, poor judgement and impaired decision-making abilities. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that drowsy driving has been the cause of 7,000 fatal car accidents in the last decade. Males between the ages of 17 and 23 (college students returning home for summer) and people with untreated sleep disorders are most at risk. Fortunately, drowsy driving is easy to spot and easier to avoid. How You Can Avoid Drowsy Driving this Summer There are several methods you can employ to avoid...

Love the TV ads! The lady with the paper cut wanting to sue the paper maker; the video game player wanting to sue the power company. So funny and a great commentary on litigants today. Makes me think that this law firm may really be interested in helping people who are really hurt and not just those looking for a quick buck.
