Early Dawn Bicycle Accident South of Market at 5th St & Harrison St

One might think that heading out early in the morning is the safer way to travel the busy city streets of San Francisco by bicycle–with less cars on the road–but unfortunately early this morning a 26-year-old bicyclist was hit by a truck. According to the police the cyclist did not have a light on his bicycle, despite the darkness of the early dawn morning, as he rode south on 5th Street getting hit at 6:28 a.m. by a pickup truck that was turning left at Harrison Street.

Over the last several years, many cities in California – including San Francisco – have noticed an increase in the number of reported dog bites. Because dog bites can cause severe injuries with long lasting effects, dog owners must be aware of the potential bite risks presented by their particular breeds of dog.

In the prior two year period, only 543 dog bites were reported. Katz attributed the increase to more…

Fatal Crash by UCSF Shuttle Driver: Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is one of my main topics lately on this blog for a reason.  Distracted driving is the cause of many automobile collisions, including fatal collisions.  In a recent post last month, I was happy to learn that due to concerns about distracted driving the NTSB recommends a ban on personal devices.  The NTSB has a focus on safety and that focus does not seem to be watered down by politics or inconvenience to cell phone users. Should all cell phone use be banned, even hands free cell phone use? This is an interesting debate and I would…
