Why are auto-pedestrian accidents increasing?

Even though California has spent time focusing on making the streets safer for pedestrians, pedestrian deaths rose in California by approximately 7 percent in the first half of 2015 when compared to 2014. Between January and June 2015, 347 people were hit by cars while walking in California. In the previous year, 323 people were hit and killed by a car.

1 killed, 2 injured in crash involving loose trailer

When you're a pedestrian, there are many hazards. Vehicles that pass by you could get into an accident and crash into you, cyclists could collide with you or other hazards could result in you getting hurt. Take for instance this case: A young man was killed and another was injured when a trailer came loose from a truck.

Bitten on the beach: What you can do now

All you wanted was to have a fun day at the beach, but it was promptly ruined as soon as some people brought their dogs out to play. At first, you thought they'd be fun, since you'd expect pets to be well-behaved in public. Soon, you found they were aggressive and snippy any time you got too close to where the people had sat down.

Roadway safety: It's everyone's job to stay safe and alert

Whether you're a pedestrian or a truck driver, it's up to you to be safe on the roads. While it's negligence that causes most accidents on the roads, there are things that everyone can do to prevent accidents, from paying attention to slowing down.

Replenishing beaches may result in tourist injuries

Here's something interesting you may never have thought about. When new sand is placed on a beach, it's not settled as well as older sand. This can lead to severe injuries. Why? Without the sandbars further from the shore, the waves come in harder and throw individuals into the sand in ways that could lead to fractures, head injuries and other wounds. Essentially, beaches with replenished shores could be more dangerous than those that are naturally occurring.
