Fatal motor vehicle accidents continue to increase in California

Why is riding a motorcycle on wet roads so dangerous?

Class Action Lawsuit Against Bird and Lime Electronic Scooters Filed

A lawsuit has been filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming that various e-scooter firms have acted in "gross negligence," even "aiding and abetting assault." This lawsuit follows the announcement of Santa Monica's pilot program for e-scooters and bikes as well as recent legislation regulating e-scooters in various Los Angeles neighborhoods. The class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of pedestrians involved in various scooter accidents throughout Los Angeles and Santa Monica. The plaintiffs claim that the existing e-scooter companies have exercised, "wanton disregard for the safety of others."

Mock WW2 Fighter Plane Crashed on 101 Freeway

If you were trying to get home for the dodger game on October 23rd, you have been stuck in some horrendous traffic. In Agoura Hills, a World War II mock fighter plane crash landed on the 101 freeway, bringing all northbound and southbound lanes to a standstill. While Firefighters arrived on scene at 1:50 p.m., all lanes on the 101 freeway were re-opened before 6 p.m. At this time, it remains unclear if fire fighters rescued the pilot or the pilot self-extricated following the crash. Regardless, nobody was injured in the incident, despite the fiery crash. Details regarding who the pilot is or how they lost control of the plane have not yet been released.

LMU Continues to Evaluate Safety of Electric Scooters

While Los Angeles city council has established a set of regulations for shared electric scooter and the city of Santa Monica has initiated its trial period, Loyola Marymount University has tried to form its own regulations. Prior to the first meeting of its committee dedicated to determining the safe use of shared electric scooters, the University has temporarily banned shared scooters campus wide. The committee meeting was first scheduled for October 5th, yet no change in policy has been announced. Hampton Cantrell, Chief of the Department of Public Safety at Loyola Marymount explained that, "Safety is our top priority. We want to make sure campus safety can be maintained before issuing a final policy."
