Do you enjoy reading about topics that this blog covers? Are you interested in news about driving, stories about changes in laws around the country, and more?
Then chances are you’ll enjoy browsing our Driving News site!
We launched the site in July 2010 as part of our overall redesign and we’ve posted over 900 stories since then. It has been steadily gaining popularity, but we want to get even more people to browse the site daily.
It’s a simple way to keep up to date with what’s going on across the country and it’s a really quick read. We generally post five to ten summaries of interesting stories each weekday with a link to read more if a story catches your eye.
Here are a few examples from the last week or so:

Kansas: Man goes to court over homemade seatbelt
Paul Weigand says that he wants to challenge the seatbelt law because he believes wearing his seatbelt should be up to him.
South Carolina: Legislature takes aim at renegade Ridgeland mayor
