The 2009 airplane crash in Buffalo, New York is being investigated by an expert on cockpit distractions who has stated that the low-speed warning system should be thoroughly examined to discover the cause of 50 people’s deaths in the fatal accident.
Could this technology, which warns pilots of potential dangers during their flight, help lower teenage car accident statistics?
As automobile accident attorneys, we believe that teen drivers have a much higher chance of getting into a car crash, causing personal injuries to themselves and others on the road. The most tragic crashes turn into fatal auto accidents and wrongful deaths.
Well, flight technology may help prevent teenage automobile accidents from happening or at the very least, lower teenage driver car accident statistics.
On May 14, 2009 the National Transportation Safety Board heard a report from a NASA scientist concerning the cockpit transcript of Continental Connection Flight 3407, which shows the captain and first officer failed to notice the twin-engine turboprop plane had slowed to a dangerously low speed, ultimately causing the fatal accident earlier in the year.
Maybe it is possible to develop similar technology for cars, market it to auto manufacturers, and they are able to implement it in cars driven by teenage drivers. If a teen driver does not drive according to the law, the device warns the driver of the mistake, but also records and tracks the movements of a car to be reviewed in the event of a car crash.
Our firm’s automobile accident attorneys believe that teenage drivers need to be properly trained before getting behind the wheel of a car. If teenagers cannot be responsible drivers on the road, then maybe technology such as this can keep teen drivers in check and lower teenage car accident statistics.
