Search Results: hit (27)

Being involved in a car accident is stressful enough, even when the two parties exchange insurance information. Hit and run accidents are somewhat more common than you could think. Evidence suggests the number of hit and run incidents are rising. As per a recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the amount of fatal crashes from hit and runs is on the rise. In 2011, the last year the NHSTA gathered data, the number rose to almost 1500. Overall, crashes decreased by 2006 to 2011, but deadly hit and runs improved by nearly 14%. In some places of the nation, hit and runs are more prevalent than others. For instance, in certain regions of California, around half of all recorded accidents involve a driver who fled the scene. I’VE BEEN IN A HIT AND RUN? NOW WHAT? Usually,…

Edmunds.com has some good advice for motorists when it comes to driving on crowded roadways and avoiding car crashes. It would seem a simple thing to reason – you avoid car crashes by concentrating on the road and keeping your hands off of devices that distract your attention, don’t you? Of course you do, but that’s not all that you have to consider. As the Edmunds article attests, avoiding a car accident is more than looking both ways before heading through an intersection. That is good advice, but there are many more aspects of driving that need to be considered, particularly modern driving, in which distractions are much greater for people behind the wheel. The personal injury you suffer in a car accident could reverberate across a lifetime and any personal injury attorney will attest that avoiding motor vehicle accidents…

As major cities make an effort to “go green”, and more people look to transport sharing companies for cheap ways to get around without the need for public transport, companies like Lyft monopolize on the change. However, this move toward shared transport isn’t without its hazards. Recently, the ride-share company Lyft pulled its electric bikes from city centers after customers complained about brakes that are too strong. While strong brakes are definitely better than no brakes, customers in New York, Washington D.C and San Francisco have all had problems with the Lyft e-bikes. The bike-sharing companies owned by Lyft that have been affected include Citi Bike, Capital Bikeshare, and Ford GoBike. It wasn’t just the complaints that got Lyft to take action, however. Many major news outlets reported cyclist injuries after being thrown from the bikes upon braking, and Lyft…

Any mode of transportation we choose has its own set of expenses that come along with it.  Some modes of transportation can be considered more costly than others and the timing and destination involved will help you determine the best and least expensive way to travel. Generally, if we are traveling locally and don’t have or use a car we may find ourselves using a traditional taxi or a ride-share app, unless of course we hitch a ride from our best friend. Many of you may wonder which is the least expensive, the traditional taxi or the Uber taxi? When it comes to short distances in travel a traditional taxi will by far be less expensive than the Uber taxi.  However, if your travels take you a bit further than local or close to home than the Uber taxi will…
