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.

As parents with a young child in a stroller were attempting to cross a Phoenix intersection on October 14, 2019, a Jeep sped through a red light and barreled toward them. At the last second, another car traveling through the green light t-boned the Jeep and pushed it away from the pedestrians, perhaps saving their lives.
Two Mesa elementary school students were physically and emotionally abused last week when their bus driver deliberately slammed on the brakes and yelled obscenities at them. No other children were present, but the bus surveillance camera caught the whole incident on tape.
Unlike many surrounding cities, Mesa is interested in increasing the number of scooters, and it hopes that by dropping the business licensing fees from $5,000 to $400 will help. City officials believe that scooters are just another answer to the public demand for cost-effective public transportation, and that more scooters will help connect residents to bus routes and light rail stops.
The debate is still raging about the safety of self-driving cars, and it seems Tesla has thrown yet another curveball into the mix. Tesla owners can now use Smart Summon to ask their car to drive to them from a distance up to 200 feet. While Tesla warns drivers to use this only in private parking lots and driveways, there are already plenty of YouTube videos showing people trying it out in busy shopping mall parking lots and more.

In 2018, Arizona saw more than 2,000 crashes caused by hitting an animal in the road, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. These crashes caused two fatalities and 249 injuries.

So, if you hit an animal, are you covered?
Rollover crashes are not as common as other types of collisions, but there are still more than 2,500 statewide each year, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. In 2018, these crashes resulted in 127 fatalities and 2,134 people injured. The majority of rollover crashes happen in rural areas; fewer happen in urban areas. This is likely due to more open roads in rural areas, allowing people to travel at higher rates of speed, as well as more dangerous shoulders that can cause drivers to lose control.
