Negligent enstrustment explained

When one is involved in an accident caused by a teenage driver in Los Angeles, the resulting expenses due to the medical and repair costs may make it necessary for them to seek compensation. Yet how much can one reasonable expect a teen to be able to offer. The legal principle of negligent entrustment allows accident victims to hold vehicle owners responsible for accidents caused by others that they have loaned their vehicles to. In the case of a teenage driver, that will often be their parents. 

Scooters and public safety

People who live in and around any major metropolitan area in California or around the nation have likely seen their share of electric scooters on the roads. In fact, they have also likely seen their share of electric scooters on sidewalks, boardwalks, bike paths and pedestrian paths as well even though the scooters are said to only be allowed to be ridden on streets.

How can I ensure safety when approaching a stopped bus?

Hearing news of any school bus accident in California is terrible, but it becomes even worse when the accident occurs because motorists do not stop for the bus when it is picking up children. These types of accidents are 100 percent preventable, but every motorist must do his or her part to ensure they do not happen. To ensure that you do not become a news story for your bad driving around a school bus, you should learn the laws and rules about interacting with school buses on the roads.
