The dangers of drinking and driving are well-publicized in an attempt to deter drivers from getting behind the wheel of a vehicle while under the influence. Unfortunately, these attempts are not always successful, and some drivers in California make the decision to drive while intoxicated. In fact, drunk driving is believed to have been a factor in a recent motorcycle accident that resulted in serious injuries.
Most drivers of traditional motor vehicles have come across a bicyclist while driving. While some people may view these cyclists as nuisance to move around, that attitude could lead to serious bicycle accidents. Bicyclists have the same right to the roadway as other users, and failing to take proper precautions when a cyclist is in the area could have catastrophic consequences in California and across the country.
Though there are multiple ways to legally enjoy California roadways, there are certain conditions that could prevent alternative methods -- such as bicycles and motorcycles -- from being safely utilized. For example, poor roadway design and inattentive drivers could easily cause harm to bicyclists. In fact, a woman has recently settled a lawsuit after she was injured in a bike crash.
Most parents in California and across the globe are committed to ensuring that the best interests of their children are met. For some people, this may even involve moving to a new country to start a new life. Unfortunately, a couple who has recently taken such action is now facing what is likely their worst nightmare -- their son was recently the victim of a fatal accident.
