Pedestrian fatalities in the Bay Area

Residents in California know that they enjoy relatively mild temperatures and weather all year long. This makes it more pleasant to be out on foot more regularly than in other parts of the country. However, there can be a serious risk of being hit by vehicles for pedestrians even in daylight hours as well as when the sun has gone down.

Drunk driving continues to plague U.S.

As people in California enjoy the holiday season, attention should be turned to the ongoing problems associated with drunk driving. This time of year tends to see an increase in the number of parties or other gatherings at which alcohol is served, thereby logically increasing the potential number of impaired drivers on the road. Despite increasingly tough laws and awareness campaigns, many people will simply not make a safe choice and avoid driving after drinking.

Understanding the concept of negligent entrustment

Those driving on San Jose's roads likely strive to be mindful of the other motorists around them, with the expectation that the same courtesy will be returned to them. Yet people have no control over the actions of others, and the chance of encountering a reckless or incompetent driver is ever-present. Teen drivers (whose skills are likely still relatively green) might pose a particular threat. While they need opportunities to gain experience behind the wheel, their parents or guardians are expected to try and ensure that experience is attained without posing a risk to others. If and when that expectation is not met, one might wonder if liability would then fall to said parents rather than their teens.
