Emergency responder accident leaves 3 injured in Phoenix

There's a motor vehicle accident topic that few people like to talk about or even think about, and for good reason: accidents with emergency responders. It is only natural to think or assume that emergency responders always make it to the scenes of an accident safely and properly. It's just the way it's supposed to work, or so our mind tells us. However, that is not always the case, may it be emergency responders arriving at or leaving from an accident scene.

How Facebook and divorce interact in the modern age

A very interesting story involving Facebook and divorce is making the rounds. In 1980, a man and a woman felt an instant connection when they met. He was in the military; and she met him for a date.

They need to be focused at all times, and they have to be on the lookout for bikes. When they are in popular bike areas, change lanes or attempt to make turns, it is especially important that they keep a close watch for bikers.
