Potholes, ruts and large cracks litter the pavement, making for rough travel and increasing the risk of an accident. Are these roads under construction? No, but they are under an incredible amount of stress from high volumes of large truck traffic - all of which they were not designed to support.
In the most recent recall from the automobile industry, General Motors is recalling more than 300,000 Chevrolet Impala sedans due to failure of its seatbelts. As reported on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the front seatbelt webbing of the 2009 and 2010 Chevrolet Impala may not be secured properly to the lap belt anchor on the side of the seat near the doors - which is a violation of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 210 (Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages). As a result, the seatbelts may fail to restrain people in the front seats during a crash and could cause injury or death. It is believed that there are 303,100 vehicles involved in this recall that are in the United States, as well as 19,000 vehicles in Canada.
