Study: children are safer when grandparents drive

In recent years, state and local legislatures and law enforcement agencies in California and throughout the country have debated the potential safety ramifications of elderly drivers. Namely, safety advocates are concerned about the common risky behaviors displayed by older drivers, such as slower response times and increased confusion. However, those who believe that older drivers should be allowed to keep their driving privileges now have some new information on their side.

Safety innovations aim to prevent motorcycle accident injuries

Last week, San Diego residents may have noticed that there were more motorcyclists on the road than they normally see. This is because June 20 was national Ride to Work Day, an event aimed at promoting and encouraging motorcycle riding with the overarching goals of saving on energy costs, reducing road congestion, and increasing the enjoyment and pleasure that biking brings. It is estimated that some 300,000 Americans commute to work on motorcycles.

California boy in stable condition after dog bite

There are many reasons that a dog will suddenly attack a person or another animal. Fear, uncertainty, abuse, or misguided attempts to protect an owner are all common causes of dog bites.

Were there any signs indicating that such an attack was possible or even likely?

Multi-car school bus accident occurs in San Diego area

Communities entrust school bus drivers with an important responsibility: protecting their children's safety as they go to and from school every day. One busy school bus could carry 40 or more students, and for the duration of the ride all of these young lives are placed in the hands of their bus driver. For this reason, school bus drivers need to be especially careful to practice safe driving habits and remain vigilant behind the wheel.

Motorcycle accident severely injures San Diego police officer

A San Diego police officer and father of two was badly injured in a traffic accident last week while riding his motorcycle to work.

Loose dog attacks mother and young son in San Diego thrift store

California pet owners are legally responsible for the actions of their animals. Essentially, it is the owner's civil duty to ensure that their pet does not pose a threat to anyone around them. If a domesticated animal does attack another person the medical consequences can be very serious, especially if the animal has not received the proper vaccinations. In addition to the physical injuries an animal attack victim may sustain, the emotional trauma of the attack can also leave long-lasting scars.
