By now, we have all witnessed our fair share of electric scooter riders zooming through our town’s sidewalks and streets, some following safety rules and some carelessly racing by, but almost all are helmet-free. The increasing prevalence and popularity of electric scooters is bringing with it risks, dangers, and now even personal injury lawsuits. A…
It’s often easy to think of cyclists as a nuisance, especially in areas that do not cater towards them with bike lanes. Seeing these experienced bike riders weave in and out of traffic can be scary, especially if you aren’t sure other drivers are paying as much attention or not. Luckily, many cities are paving the way for cyclists with new bike lanes and plans for safer bicycle traffic. The latest metro area to make this list is our very own Lubbock, Texas.
We are lucky enough to live during a time where if you need a ride somewhere but don’t have access to a vehicle, you can simply call an Uber or Lyft and be on your way. Now, electric scooters are becoming the new norm for simply riding short distances around town—and Lubbock will soon have its own scooters to choose from. While this sounds like a fun and innovative way to get around town, it does come with many shortcomings, some of which can be deadly.
The holidays are a time for fun, family, food, and festivities. During this season, we often spend much more time than usual driving, whether it’s driving to purchase gifts, a road trip to grandmas, or simply driving to the office holiday party. While all of this sounds like a great way to get into the spirit of the season, it’s important to keep safety measures in mind for when you may need them.
Driving comes with many risks and it is a driver’s responsibility to do everything in his or her power to minimize these risks by driving safely. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen and some drivers are worse than others.
Using a bicycle for transportation is an increasingly popular way for people to get around. In addition to being a healthy choice, it is also good for the environment. However, when cities do not provide bicycles their own lanes on the road, it greatly increases the likelihood of accidents. While many people share the road with bicycles responsibly, some drivers can be careless or reckless, and this can cause collisions between cars and bicyclists. To help keep both bicyclists and drivers safe, the city of Lubbock is implementing more bike lanes.
The holidays are meant to be a joyous time for people to come together, but sometimes accidents can dampen the mood. To help keep the holidays happy this year, follow these ten safety tips.
