Get the basics on bicycle accidents in Fullerton

Bicycling in Fullerton is a common activity. It is fun, cost efficient and healthy. Both bicyclists and motorists have the right to share the road, but they also both have the responsibility to operate their vehicles with due care and follow traffic laws. Therefore, when a collision between a bicyclist and motorist occurs, there are two general questions that must be asked: was the motorist negligent and was there contributory negligence on the part of the bicyclist?

How can motorists prevent motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle unawareness is a serious issue, especially in Fullerton where motorcyclists can take to the streets year-round. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents do occur, often due to inattention on the part of another driver. What's even worse is that a motorcycle accident can be so severe as to cause the motorcyclist's death. The following are some tips motorists can follow to avoid motorcycle accidents.

How can drivers keep school children safe on Fullerton's roads?

School is back in session for children in Fullerton. Some walk to school, some bike and others take the school bus. But, no matter how they travel to school, it is important for motorists to be aware of child pedestrians in their vicinity, and follow the traffic rules accordingly.

Police were on the lookout for drunk drivers this Labor Day

Another Labor Day is behind us, but Fullerton residents may have noticed an increased police presence on the road during the holiday weekend. This is because the Orange County Sherriff's Department participated in the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign, in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Orange County residents injured by drunk drivers have options

California residents have been hearing the message for years -- don't drink and drive. It seems like common sense. Unfortunately, some drivers do not heed this advice. They may underestimate how drunk they are or some may even feel they are better drivers when they have had a few drinks. Unfortunately, attitudes like this lead to entirely preventable drunk driving accidents.
