Some Honda Civic owners have reported problems related to their lane departure assist system also known as the Honda Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). For example, according to the website Carproblemzoo.com, the owner of one 2022 Honda Civic reported the lane centering/keeping feature began pulling the vehicle sharply to the right side of the lane causing the lane departure warning system to shake the steering wheel, this occurring on or about June 13, 2022, with just over 600 miles on the Honda Civic vehicle.

Another driver said in a complaint on March 16, 2022, that their 2022 Honda Civic pulled out of the lane instead of steering the vehicle in the lane. The driver stated s/he provided Honda with video and picture evidence and that the automaker couldn’t do anything to fix the problem. This individual said s/he are no longer comfortable using those features and that s/he don’t feel safe driving the vehicle while those assist features are engaged.

Obviously, these vehicle owners should not be using those apparently unsafe purported safety features, although they relied upon them and were charged for them by Honda.   Further if you were involved in any injury accident involving the Honda lane assist feature, please contact us now for an absolutely FREE consultation.

New California Wrongful Death Law May Help Heirs of Car and Truck Accident Victims Killed in Accidents

MORE L.A. CAR, TRUCK, MOTORCYCLE, BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS RESULTING IN WRONGFUL DEATH AND SERIOUS INJURY CLAIMS

Despite Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s goal of eliminating all traffic deaths by the year 2025, unfortunately traffic deaths and injuries have actually increased.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) just released data that up to December 25, 2021, 289 persons were killed in traffic collisions from January 1, 2021 to December 25, 2021.  That is an increase of 21% more deaths than the year before (2020) and an increase of 19% more than the year before that (2019).   You may click here to learn more about wrongful death claims and experienced wrongful death lawyers.  [As an aside, one does wonder why the LAPD was unable over a week into 2022 to provide date until the end of December 31, 2021?  Perhaps the reason is the prior years’ statistics cover this same unusual ending date and its best to compare exact time periods?]

There have been 38,680 reported deaths on U.S. roads during 2020, according to the National Safety Council, a nonprofit organization.  Many of these traffic accidents result in wrongful death claims.  This is the most car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident and other motor vehicle deaths since 2007.   What is most startling about this motor vehicle wrongful death statistic is that we know that the quarantine shut-downs of the coronavirus 19  pandemic drastically reduced driving and traffic, so why would traffic accidents resulting in deaths increase?

The National Safety Council stated that this wrongful death statistic “was completely unprecedented.”  It added, “We didn’t know what was happening.”

Different possibilities for this increase in car and other motor vehicle death cases include that drivers are stressed out due to all the health, financial and other problems caused by this pandemic.  The National Safety Council opined that American drivers were releasing their anxieties and other problems, such as depression and feelings of isolation and loneliness, on the more wide-open roads that resulted from much less travel.
