What Do I Do In an Uber / Lyft Accident

Uber is arguably the biggest and most popular ride-hailing company in the world, and part of its success can be attributed to high safety standards. Notably, their drivers are thoroughly scrutinized before getting approved, and must undergo a mandatory road safety and customer care training thereafter. They also have to abide by strict rules, and an unforgiving customer review system designed to protect passengers from harm.

However, despite all these measures, accidents involving Uber are still prevalent in our roads. So, what should you do if you get involved in an Uber accident? Well, let’s find out more…

What to Do When You’ve Been Bitten By a Dog

Do you love dogs? They say that canines are man’s best friend’, loyal and true.

While dogs can be beloved pets, they also have potential to cause injury. Some breeds may naturally be slightly more aggressive than say, a Chihuahua (and anything larger than a Chihuahua with a strong bite may really be able to do some damage). Others may not be trained properly or have a history of incidents.
It may depend on the owner and whether they take good care of them. Sometimes dogs seem to snap for no reason, but logical explanations exist– a car backfiring spooked them, or […]

Our Top Tips for Avoiding Distracted or Drowsy Driving

Are you someone who is constantly exhausted? How often do you get behind the wheel while yawning or feeling generally sleepy?

Drowsy driving is a form of distracted driving. If you are feeling tired or sleepy when getting behind the wheel, you are that much more likely to get into an accident.

A recent study conducted by the N.S.F. highlighted just how risky drowsy driving can be. At least one out of seven drivers surveyed admitted that they had nodded off while operating a motor vehicle at least one or more times during a one-year period.

It gets worse– one out of ten […]

The Importance of Paying Attention as a Pedestrian

You may have heard about how important it is to avoid distracted driving, but have you heard the same about walking?

People don’t realize it, but pedestrians are involved in hundreds of injuries and even fatalities every year. While it may seem more important to avoid looking at your phone while driving (and it is), it’s pretty important to maintain a sense of awareness while you’re walking too.

Just as when you are driving, it’s important to pay attention to your surroundings while walking, biking, rollerblading, or doing any other type of activity on foot and not in a vehicle. When you’re […]

Can a New Law in the Sunshine State Affect Your Rights as a Driver?

Were you aware that changes in driving laws regarding insurance could possibly impact your rights as a driver? That’s important to know if you are a motorist driving in the state where laws have recently changed– and could affect you directly.

No one wants to be affected by laws that they may or may not even have been aware existed.

How to Talk to New Drivers About Driving Safely

As a parent, you may have dreaded the day that your child has approached the legal driving age. Most teens want to go to driving school and get their permit and eventually their license to drive. You may feel nervous about this budding stage in their life where they are going to be driving and inherit all of the responsibility that comes with it.

While teenage drivers and drivers in their twenties are largely regarded as being the worst bracket of drivers on the road, it’s simply inexperience that causes young drivers to earn this somewhat unfortunate reputation. However, that is […]

You’re not likely to see that many cycles on the road during the winter season, but once the nice weather starts to turn over and those first nice days happen, riders want to get out on the road just like anybody […]
