There is an enormous stigma against #motorcycle  riders, one which is especially harmful when trying to help after they've been involved in an accident. Even if the rider had no fault in the collision, plenty of victim blaming will occur simply due to motorists' unfavorable view of those on two wheels. Cyclists will understand, since they get the same treatment.

If you're a grandparent taking care of the little ones, it's as important to child-proof your medicine cabinet as all other danger zones such as kitchen drawers and unstable furniture. With the onset of arthritis, many grandparents no longer use medicine bottle with child-safe caps due to difficulty opening them, so the cabinet itself should be kept under lock and key.

It's nice to get some closure on the Toyota unintended acceleration debacle. Too many people were hurt or killed as a result of faulty cars and to make it worse, Toyota did everything they could to avoid facing up to it. Hopefully the DOJ will work closely with GM during their recall and make sure everything goes smoothly.

This comic author lays out the best description for commuting by car I've ever seen. Sure, a fun #roadtrip  or weekend drive to do something interesting are great, but getting stuck in #traffic  every morning and then again in the evening are terrible wastes of time.

How about some shameless self promotion for my YouTube series? The most devastating and involved cases we handle at the firm are representing clients who have lost a loved one in an accident. Of course, it's important that all my clients understand the process of the case, as well as everything we will need from them to make it a success.

Hey business owners and employers out there: be sure to encourage your workers and employees to participate in this year's Bike to Work Day. The event is great for community building and a perfect start for anyone looking to continue bike commuting year-round.

 #GM
 
This article gives a pretty nice breakdown of the timeline between the manufacture of the faulty cars and the recent recall. It's nice to get an apology from the CEO, but the company needs to move quickly and aggressively to make sure all those faulty switches are swapped out. 
 
The top executive of General Motors apologized for deaths linked to the delayed recall of 1.6 million small cars, saying the company took too long to tell owners to bring the cars in for repairs. #indianalawyer  http://billhurst.com
General Motors' failure to take action earlier in the recall of cars with faulty ignition switches poses a huge potential risk to both its reputation and its bottom line as the company attempts to navigate a growing number of investigations and lawsuits despite a liability shield it gained during its bankruptcy in 2009.

72 hours is what it can take for emergency services to reach you and your family in case of a large disaster. While the linked website is made by the city of San Francisco, the tips and plans included apply to everyone, especially in earthquake-prone California. Watch out for yourself and your family, and be ready for the big one.

"When You See A Cyclist Down," what should you do? Apart from the obvious of making sure everyone is ok, and calling the paramedics if they're not, there are a few important tasks that would really help out the rider. After getting hit, a cyclist isn't going to have all their wits about them, so collect the following information:
