The debate about the bike-sharing program in San Diego

Commuting in San Diego can be aggravating, at best. Spending a significant part of your day stuck in traffic can make even the calmest person feel like pulling their hair out. In response to these frustrations, a bike-sharing program was launched in San Diego, encouraging people to use rental bikes to commute rather than cars.

Follow these safety tips when riding a bicycle in San Diego

When you're traveling in anything other than an enclosed motor vehicle - like a car or SUV - your chances of suffering a serious injury in a crash are much higher. Last week, we talked about the best ways to stay safe when riding a motorcycle in California. This week, let's focus on some guidelines for avoiding a dangerous accident when you're on a bicycle.

Who is to blame for California's high pedestrian fatality rate?

Recently, university researchers conducted a study on pedestrian accidents and fatalities in U.S. cities. For residents of Los Angeles and other large California cities, the results of the study probably did not come as a surprise.

Bike safety bill passes California assembly

Earlier this week, the California assembly passed the so-called '3 Feet' bicycle safety bill, which requires drivers to give bicyclists at least three feet of space when passing on California roads. The bill now goes to the state Senate for a concurrence vote. The Senate previously passed a similar bill, so this version will likely make it to Gov. Jerry Brown's desk in the relatively near future.

California bicycle-pedestrian accident leads to felony charges

A California bicyclist is facing felony charges in connection with a bicycle accident that resulted in the death of a pedestrian earlier this year. The case is one of the few instances in which a bicycle rider has been charged with a felony for his or her role in a fatal crash, but it may not be the last. In the past few months, there have been two other California pedestrian accident fatalities in which bicyclists were involved. One of those incidents resulted in a misdemeanor, and charges have not yet been filed in the other.

Bicyclist killed in San Diego car accident

Many bicyclists are understandably wary of riding their bikes on a busy road, preferring to ride on designated bike paths to protect themselves from accidents and injuries. Unfortunately, there are times when the bike path can't protect bicyclists from irresponsible and dangerous drivers.

Two San Diego bike accident victims suffer serious head injuries

We all know that the roadways are not only for cars and trucks; especially in warm, tourist destinations like San Diego, larger vehicles must navigate around motorcycles, pedestrians, and bicyclists. When negligent or careless drivers fail to share the streets with these alternative forms of transportation a serious accident can occur.
