States should lower the definition of drunk driving to a blood-alcohol reading of no more than .05 percent, the National Transportation Safety Board’s staff recommended, saying the U.S. is too tolerant of impairment behind the wheel.

The safety board at a meeting today said the U.S. is behind other countries, including most of Europe, in having a threshold for drunk driving of .08 in all 50 U.S. states.

Question: Does PIP insurance cover my injuries?

Posted: 27 Jan 2016 08:22 PM PST

I have a Personal Injury Protection policy through GEICO in florida, I also
own a commercial dump truck which I have insured through Progrssive. I got
into an accident driving the dump truck, and am seeking chiropractic
treatment for the injuries. Which insurance company should pay for my
medical treatment?

I think GEICO should because PIP is meant to cover medical expenses up to
10K, then GEICO should subrogate to Progressive, but both insurance
companies are denying payment.

fault would it be? It was at a 4 way intersection…

because my Bday is coming in a few months and she “thinks” ill have to buy

turning 19 and this is my first car. Would I need to buy another tag, in
what case would I need to do what she said? Henry County bday is in march
yes this is close but because of work, school, and personal reasons I would
prefer to drive now if possible

Question: Bought a used car but hadn t got title.?

Posted: 27 Jan 2016 06:45 PM PST

I bought a used car down in Miami. The guy used the car as collateral to
take a loan out for $1,000 so we met up at the place where he got the loan,
I gave him a $1,000 to pay them to get the title release but the company
says it takes 2 days for the title to release. We did a bill of sale and
they notarized it and we did title transfer to my name and she said I ll
have the title in the mail in 48hours and a week later I still hadn t got
title in mail. Can I go to dmv and print out the title and being bill of
sale as proof? I live in Jacksonville Florida. Will the dmv pull up the
info and see that I am the new owner? Obviously I can t register the car
unless I have the title.

she will do to me if she knows i crashed her car. Its not a big crash but
its a dent on the front left side and a scratch. Its visible tho and she’s
probably going to use it today. What do I do? What is she going to do?

Question: Late car title transfer…Insurance?
I bought a car last year and never transferred the title.?

Posted: 27 Jan 2016 06:16 PM PST

Now I do have the funds to insure and register it. Should I go the RMV and
transfer the title before I call and signup for insurance, and then go back
to the RMV to register and get plates. Or can I just sign up for insurance
with the title still in the seller’s name (it’s in his name as far as the
RMV is concerned, but he legally signed the title over to me upon sale)
What should I do? Thanks

Question: California DMV: Turning 21, needing to get a horizontal license?

Posted: 27 Jan 2016 06:08 PM PST

I turn 21 in about 2 weeks and I got a notice in the mail to renew early
before it expires on my birthday. I renewed it knowing I would still get a
vertical license but I have multiple plans to go out the month of my
birthday and I was worried I would not be able to if my license was
expired. Also I go to Arizona a lot for vacation and they do not accept
vertical I.D’s even if you are 21 and over to buy alcohol. So I do not know
my best option on getting another license so I will not have any
restrictions at all. I know I will have to pay again, but what I want to
know is, do I say I lost it? or do I just tell them I want a new one? I was
hoping to take a new photo as well since I renewed online it is my same
photo from when I was 15. I am concerned they will not let me renew twice
since my license doesn’t expire for a few more years.

Question: Car crashed when test driving in Texas. someone with experience
help plz!!?

Posted: 27 Jan 2016 02:38 PM PST

First of all, the damage of both car is not really bad, especially the
truck i hit. He got nearly no dmg compared to the Kia Soul I drive. The Kia
Soul got pretty obvious damage, but nothing like the car turns in a
different shape, just some scratches and some depression or light hollow.
So the police/patrol came here. After he is done, he gave me the
informations of both parties’ car, contacts etc. Also, he gave me a slip
for me to see the judge. Then he said something about 10 days crash report.

Here is the question. What to do about that crash report? Do i need to file
a form of crash report to police? or i can get my crash report after/in 10
days? What should i do after? What are the steps i should take?

Question: Help with getting a Motability car?

Posted: 27 Jan 2016 01:20 PM PST

Hi, I’m 21 and have had M.E for 6 years. 2 years ago, after several
appeals, I finally was given Disability Living Allowance. I started my
driving lessons in August and have recently booked my test. I had a
Motability car brochure come through, saying that I qualify for one. The
only problem I have is that my DLA is up for assessment in November this
year and I need to have 12 months left of my claim to get a Motability car.
Since I got DLA, none of my symptoms have changed so I should still get it
in November but I’m hoping that when I’ve passed my test, I will be able to
be reassessed straight away instead of in November so I can get a car
almost straight away. Does anyone know if this is possible or will I have
to be patient and wait until November?


Question: Auto insurance claim process?
