Every day, an average of four people lose their lives in traffic accidents in Southern California.
The risks to pedestrians near roadways cannot be overstated. A single mistake made by a driver can prove deadly for a pedestrian who has no way to avoid the accident and no protection from the impact.
Driving on the highway is a way of life for many people. But just because you spend a lot of time on these roadways doesn't make it any easier to maintain a high level of safety.
When driving in a city setting, you'll approach one intersection after the next.
Operating a motor vehicle is a big responsibility, as violating the law in any way can result in an accident that causes serious injury or death.
It's a joy to spend time with family and friends during the holiday season. It doesn't matter if you're doing so at home, at a local hot spot or even at work, you're sure to have a smile on your face. And in some cases, you're sure to have an alcoholic beverage in your hand.
Most truck drivers understand the responsibility that goes along with operating such a large motor vehicle. However, even those with the best intentions have the potential to cause a serious accident that results in injury or even death.
You're driving down the road, minding your business, when you spot someone who is clearly distracted. Maybe they're on the phone and not paying attention to the road. Or maybe they're turned around looking at someone or something in the backseat.
Motor vehicle-pedestrian accidents remain a major concern throughout the country, especially in areas like Riverside, California where there's a high volume of pedestrians.
Would a later “last call” for bars and other California establishments that serve alcohol help stagger (so to speak) the times at which people under the influence might be getting behind the wheel, resulting in fewer people emerging from these venues at 2 a.m.? (That is the latest an establishment can serve alcohol state law.) Or would it just cause people to drink longer and get more inebriated?
