Auto-Pedestrian Accidents Archives

What are 'ghost bikes' and why do they matter?

"Part memorial, part protest." That's the best way to sum up the meaning of a ghost bike. Painted white and chained to a stationary object at the site where yet another cyclist lost their life in a traffic accident, these bikes are, at once, a form of street art, a call for change and a place for people to grieve their lost loved ones or fellow cyclists.

Cyclists: Remember these safety tips

People are starting to pull their bikes out of storage for the summer, and it's no coincidence that May is National Bicycle Safety Month. As such, both the Office of Traffic Safety and the California Highway Patrol have been reminding people in this state to be a little extra cautious out there on the roads.

Determining fault in a pedestrian accident

Pedestrians are the most vulnerable on the road because they have no form of protection in the event of a collision. Generally speaking, parties with the most capacity to cause harm have the highest responsibilities. This is why truck drivers must engage in additional training and are held to higher standards when it comes to having alcohol in their system when driving.

Pedestrian killed in Bay Area bus crash

Los Angeles, San Francisco and other cities in California are not particularly noted as havens for walkers and hikers beyond certain scenic districts. The Golden State has a big car culture, which is only recently changing to accept more pedestrian and mass transit options as priorities and realities change to require them.

Don't become a statistic: Prevent pedestrian accidents

Being a pedestrian in California can be dangerous these days. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, the state has seen a drastic increase in the number of pedestrian-vehicle accidents. Fatalities are common -- rising more than 32% between 2012 and 2016. In addition, over 14,000 pedestrians were injured in 2016 alone.
