Tennessee Dept. of Transportation uses quips to warn drivers

Posted on Monday, December 8th, 2014   

Tennessee drivers were given a small request by officials from the state Department of Transportation: “Keep your eyes on the road and your head out of your apps,” the Tennessean reported on November 14.

Around 60 digital interstate designs all over Tennessee display different messages to motorists using the highways, informing drivers about recent accidents, road conditions, and special events that may cause traffic to be congested.

The signs also post driving tips and values such as wearing seat belts, avoiding drinking while driving, and preventing distracted driving.

Some displays, including those that tell of traffic fatalities within the state, sparked debates regarding the appropriateness of the program. The recent figures are usually posted on a Friday, confronting motorists who use the highways for long trips back and forth.

If you have been the victim of a personal injury accident, such as motor vehicle crashes, product defects, or unsafe premises in Tennessee, our attorneys at Pohl & Berk, LLP, may be able to fight on your behalf. Call our offices today at (615) 277-2765 to begin taking action.


Toyota issues 3 separate recalls

Posted on Friday, May 30th, 2014   

Toyota Motor Corp. issued a recall on May 22 of 516,000 vehicles around the world for three separate vehicle safety issues, FOX WBRC reported.

According to officials from Toyota, there is a possibility that road salt, used in icy conditions that occur in cold climates, can cause corrosion of the spare tire carrier under the vehicle. This could dislodge the tire from its position. Toyota said that although splash protector and anti-corrosion treatment were applied to the vehicles, rusting can still occur. The recall was for 450,000 Sienna minivans of the 2004-2011 model years, which included 370,000 minivans sold in the United States, 80,000 in Canada, and 400 in Europe.

Toyota also recalled 16,000 Lexus GS 250 and 350 sedans of the 2013 model year due to a brake light malfunction that can cause the brakes or brake lights to turn on without the driver’s guidance. Lastly, 50,000 2014 Highlander and Highlander hybrid SUVs were recalled due to airbag deployment issues.
