June is National Safety Month. And while many people might first think that National Safety Month is about water safety, workplace safety, and safety while out on the roads, it’s important to remember to keep our pets safe, too. The leash laws in Arizona are meant to do just this, and to keep everyone around dogs safe as well. Read the rest »
Summer in Phoenix is a great time to get out there with the kids and make the most of summer vacation.

Phoenix is a beautiful city to discover on foot, walking around and soaking in all it has to offer. When most pedestrians head out to enjoy the city, they do so safely. However, some pedestrians always think that they have the right of way, and that vehicles must always yield to them.
In the spirit of National Safety Month, we’d like to remind everyone on the roads—motorists and pedestrians—to travel safely at all times. There are many ways to stay safe as a pedestrian, and most of them simply involve paying attention and being aware of your surroundings. Read the rest »
Some states have recognized the importance of wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle, and have made it law requiring a helmet while riding a motorcycle. Arizona is not one of them, with the exception of children under the age of 18.
But motorcyclists should wear their helmets at all times—even when just going down their own streets or for a ride around their properties. It’s been proven time and time again; motorcycle helmets save lives. And wearing one could save yours. Read the rest »
Even if you’re the best driver on the road, things aren’t completely within your control when you get behind the wheel. Not only do you need to worry about the other drivers out there, but also about your own car, and the things that could go wrong with it.
To make sure your vehicle is as safe as possible, it’s advised that all drivers perform vehicle inspections. This can help prevent minor issues from becoming something more serious, and can alert you to problems you may not have known existed. Read the rest »
Year after year it seems the National Safety Council (NSC) reports that injuries are the main cause of death for Americans from the ages of 1 to 44. It’s not surprising, then, that they’ve claimed June as National Safety Month; a time when everyone can be a little more careful and try to keep themselves (and everyone around them) a little safer.
Throughout the month the NSC has dedicated each week to a different aspect of safety. Throughout that week, they hope to bring awareness to that safety feature and spark conversation among employers, employees, organizations, and the entire community. Read the rest »
If passed by the legislature, this new tool would allow law enforcement to plug in to your phone (without a warrant) and do a scan of your recent text history to see if you were texting while driving. Texting while driving is currently illegal in many cities—but it can be very difficult to prove. Read the rest »
The Grand Canyon Tour Company, Gogo Charter Bus Las Vegas, and Open Top Sightseeing are just a few of the best private tour buses you can ride in and around Vegas. However, a recent bus accident in the Mojave Desert involving a tour bus traveling from Fresno to Las Vegas reminds us that tour bus accidents do happen.
While there are certainly some things passengers can’t avoid, such as accidents due to drunk driving, excessive speed, or bus malfunction, passengers can still try to help themselves as much as possible. Read the rest »
Las Vegas is considered a pretty dangerous city when it comes to car accidents. The intersection at Charleston and Lamb has been, unofficially, the most dangerous in Las Vegas for the past several years, but recently Tropicana and most of its cross-roads have been making their way to the top of the list.
Car accidents may be common among residents in these areas, but when they involve out-of-state drivers, everything becomes more complicated.
The Las Vegas Strip is the most popular spot in Vegas for a reason. Those bright lights, warm Nevada air, and the ability to get just about anything you want at any hour of the day—there’s no better way to enjoy it than on a motorcycle. However, the ride can only be enjoyed if it’s done safely, so it’s important to know the laws surrounding motorcycles in Las Vegas. Read the rest »
