On February 14th, anyone who has a partner knows it is time to do something to make that person feel special. It’s the one day each year to celebrate love. A funny thing about love is that emotions can run high – and when emotions are negative, expressed while operating a vehicle, everyone sharing the road is put at risk. Valentine’s day last year saw the highest number of accidents on a single day for the entire year, so we want to make sure everyone pay’s extra attention to safety this new year.
A slip-and-fall accident can lead to serious, catastrophic, or fatal injuries, and is far more dangerous than most people realize. One out of every five falls results in a serious injury, according to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). The agency reports that 3 million people are treated each year in emergency rooms for injuries sustained in a fall, with over 800,000 hospitalized.
Arizona is one of the most popular places for snowbirds during the dark, cold winter months. While an influx of snowbirds helps the state’s economy, there is no question that these visitors can get on the nerves of locals. We assume you know what a snowbird is, but just to be clear – the term refers to retirees who choose to make the Phoenix area home during the cold winter months in Canada, the Midwest, or the east, returning home after the weather warms. They buy (or rent) condos or apartments during the months of October through May.
The world was shocked in 2018 when an Uber self-driving test vehicle hit and killed a woman, Elaine Herzberg, who was crossing the street walking her bicycle. The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) has reviewed the facts in the accident and recently revealed the discovery that the Uber software had innate flaws, which resulted in the untimely death of Ms. Herzberg.

Phoenix is a great town for dog-lovers, with plenty of places to play: Cesar Chavez Dog Park, Esteban Park, Hance Dog Park, Paradise Valley, Deer Valley, Deem Hills Park, and more!
But according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4.5 million people are victims of dog bites annually, and 885,000 of those bites require medical attention. Children are at the highest risk of dog bites, and adult males are the second most likely to suffer a dog attack.
