Drivers are confused about what their cars can do

Drivers in California and throughout America may be confused about what autonomous vehicles are actually capable of. There are five levels of automation, with the highest level reserved for vehicles that can truly drive themselves with no human engagement. Currently, most autonomous systems are at level two, which means that a human operator must still be paying attention at all times. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety did a study featuring 2,000 drivers to see what they knew about current autonomous technology.

Defective hernia mesh can cause painful consequences

People in California who sought treatment for a hernia may have wound up suffering serious damage as a result of the mesh products used to repair the injury. While hernia meshes have been used for over 60 years in these procedures, some of the options and materials developed over time have caused even more severe injuries due to product defects. Some of the materials that were used to create hernia mesh products had not been fully tested before being used in patients' surgical procedures. In many cases, patients have required additional surgery to treat the original hernia and additional damage.
