Two important tips for Halloween revelers

This weekend is probably a kid’s favorite day of the year…aside from Christmas and the last day of school. Halloween is the annual day of frights and candy where kids dress up in costume and go trick-or-treating. While many people will take kids around their neighborhoods to get treats, Halloween is not just for the little ones. If the Party City commercials are any indication, adults will be going to many Halloween parties as well.

Truck catches fire on I-10

In our last couple of posts, we have highlighted how traffic accidents can shut down highways and cause miles of backups in the Phoenix metro area. Indeed, snarled traffic can be the bane of one’s existence when trying to get from point A to point B in the valley.

Could your own negligence harm your car accident claim?

While heavy traffic during rush hour on weekdays is expected, such traffic can be utterly frustrating during the weekend. However, a serious car accident can lead to highways being limited to one lane or shut down completely as first responders help those who are injured.

Unrelenting focus on inadequacies at Phoenix VA facility

An Office of Inspector General (OIG) report stating that administrators at the Phoenix VA Health Care System's urology clinic didn't have a plan to deal with understaffing and inadequate care for veterans is incorrect, says a former doctor at the facility.

Cow stops traffic on Interstate 10

In many of our posts we advise our readers to stay alert for hazards. We don’t simply make these statements to make abstract guidelines about safety, but to give our readers examples of how things can go haywire when drivers’ attention wanes.

Who may sue for wrongful death after a fatal car accident?

Car accident fatality, as readers know, is among the top killers in the United States. Federal and state transportation safety authorities and law enforcement agencies are well aware of this and are continually working to address the problem through better laws and more effective enforcement techniques, as well as through safety awareness and public education.

The role schools can play in promoting safe driving practices

For many high school aged kids, getting their driver’s license is arguably the greatest moment of their lives. It means that the door to a new world of freedom has been opened, and opportunities to make friends and have new experiences can be realized.

Why open conversations with teen drivers are important

It may seem obvious, but parents often do not realize that they are a primary influence on their children's lives. This is generally true, despite teens expressing how embarrassed they are by being in public with their parents, how their parents' taste in music and movies may be ancient and stale, or how their parents may not understand how difficult it is to be a teen.

How to know if you are susceptible to road rage

Sometimes traffic is tough to deal with, and it can be nerve-wracking no matter where you are driving in the Valley. Drivers can become upset in bumper-to-bumper traffic or when traffic suddenly slows down. It seems that people do not always respect our right to be on the road.

Pedestrian killed by debris from car accident

A man who was killed when debris from a two-car accident struck him was able to heroically protect and shield his wife. The crash occurred at the corner of 43rd and Peoria Avenues in Phoenix. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, and authorities are still unsure of which driver failed to yield before the crash occurred.
