Study shows automatic braking can prevent backup collisions

Backing up a vehicle is a risky maneuver that can lead to vehicle damage, injuries and sometimes even death, especially that of children. For this reason, drivers in Arizona should be aware of a report from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that studied the effect of new safety technology on backup collision rates.

Harley-Davidson recalls more than 250,000 motorcycles

Arizona residents who own some of Harley-Davidson's most iconic models may have recently received recall notices. The Wisconsin-based motorcycle manufacturer is recalling more than 250,000 VSRC performance bikes and CVO cruisers made between 2008 and 2011. These models are better known as the V-Rod and the Street Glide. The voluntary recall has been issued because degraded break fuel can cause the anti-lock braking systems fitted to the bikes to corrode and fail.

Study shows advantage of collision avoidance systems

Arizona motorists may want to reconsider the benefits of collision avoidance systems after hearing about the results of a study published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The IIHS has shown that these systems can dramatically decrease the number of accidents and injuries.

Auto recalls hit record high in 2016

Anyone in Arizona who owns a car that was not involved in a recall back in 2016 could consider themselves lucky. That year set a U.S. record for car recalls, with a total of 53.1 million vehicles recalled. A large part of the reason for that high number was the Takata air bag and General Motors ignition switch issues both happening in 2016. Combined, the Takata and GM recalls made up almost half of the recalls at 23 million cars. All the 2016 recalls cost up to $22.1 billion for automakers and suppliers.
