Autonomous car crashes spur media interest

Knowing the risk of car crashes on the roadways, many Philadelphia residents may be intrigued by the potential of semi-autonomous driving technology. While self-driving cars once seemed like something out of a science-fiction story, there are multiple corporations working to develop those theories into a reality. From Tesla to Uber, some of the most advanced tech companies have been developing autonomous technologies, from full-on self-driving vehicles to assistance software designed to help drivers improve their safety on the road.

Mobile app exposes nationwide dangerous driving practices

Pennsylvania drivers use mobile phones on approximately 37 percent of their trips behind the wheel. This rate puts them around the national median, according to figures from Everdrive, a mobile app that tracks the safety practices of drivers. Everdrive used data from 300,000 of its users across the country to compile the report. The states with the most widespread phone usage while driving were mostly in the southern part of the country; Mississippi topped the list, followed by Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Florida.
