Davis Police Focus On Bicycle Safety

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on December 21, 2011

According to news sources, a collaborative bicycle safety effort spearheaded by The Davis Police Department hopes to increase safety awareness while stepping up enforcement of traffic laws.

The project will begin January 9, 2012 with an increased focus on traffic law enforcement in area frequented by bicyclists in order to ensure that traffic laws such as riding at night with a light and stopping at stop signs are followed. In the past year about 54 collisions involving bicyclists took place in Davis, with over 90 percent of those cases resulting in injuries sustained by bicyclists. The program’s goal is to educate bicyclists and motorists on the lawful practices of sharing the road.

Bicyclists who are issued citations for violating traffic laws such as traveling without a light at night can reportedly take those citations to participating bike stores and receive 10 percent off new bike lights.

As a personal injury attorney Los Angeles, I deeply appreciate ongoing efforts to ensure that our roads are safer for all who travel on them. For your safety as well as the safety of others, make sure you are familiar with traffic laws and bicycle safety practices. As a car accident attorney Los Angeles, I hope that the conclusions of this endeavor will lead to safer roads and safer driving habits amongst motorists and bicyclists alike.

CPSC Aims To Make Gel Fuels And Firepots Safer

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on December 20, 2011

According to news sources, The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is aiming to make gel fuels and firepots safer for consumers by voting to begin publishing advance notices of proposed rulemaking to the public.

Consumers using gel fuel run burn risks when pouring it into an already lit firepot, since the gel can unexpectedly ignite and splash onto the users face or body. There have already been about 65 incidents reported between April 2010 through September 2011 relating to the use of the product. Of those incidents, two resulted in death and about 34 cases resulted in second and third degree burns of different body parts.

The measure would allow the public 60 days from the time of publication of any proposed rules to discuss the different safety aspects as well as the risks involved with using the product.

The CPSC began the process of investigating burn accidents resulting from the use of firegel products last June.
