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.

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.
