Jonathan Rosenfeld's insight:

Wearing earbuds on a bicycle in downtown Washington is one step away from cycling with blinders. It’s asking for trouble and certainly increasing the chances of getting into an accident.

Ditch the buds, for your sake and for the continued growth of bikes in DC.

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, April 17, 2013 10:35 PM

As a bike accident lawyer, I am keenly aware of the need for both bicyclists and motorists to maintain full senses while riding on the roadways.  This study indicates that riding a bike with headphones or ear buds leads to more bike accidents.  Stay safe!  Ride Alert!

Everyone knows someone who was involved in a car accident. For most, the experience may have resulted in an inconvenience due to a damaged fender or perhaps a sore neck. On the other hand, car accidents can result in some of the most debilitating injuries that cut across all demographics.


Accidents can happen at any time and anywhere. It is always better to be informed beforehand on how to deal when/if it happens.

Bicycle Rear View Camera

Jonathan Rosenfeld's insight:

While many drivers are mindful of the ‘safety space’ needed to be put between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them, they may behave very differently when a bicyclist is located in front of them– negligently providing precious little room between their vehicle and the the bicyclist.


While rear-end bicycle collisions do take place while stopped at a traffic signal, other bicyclists are struck from behind by vehicles as they attempt to pass them or when the cyclist lawfully changes lane of travel.

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, October 13, 2013 11:35 PM

With the new 3 foot safe distance buffer rule for motorists passing bikes in California, I think a rear view bicycle camera is a great tool to evidence violations related to mishaps.  The law is meant to provide further protection to aggressive motorists passing bikes and causing spills but, without hard evidence of a violation, these cases become "he said, she said".  Having proof via video seems like a great idea!

Truck collision warning systems belong to two broad categories.

Lacerations & Road Rash In A Chicago Motorcylce Accident

Lacerations & Road Rash In A Chicago Motorcylce Accident | Chicago Personal Injury Lawyer News | Scoop.it
A motorcycle accident can result in serious injuries such as road rash or lacerations.
Jonathan Rosenfeld's insight:

Due to the limited amount of protection that is afforded anyone who is riding a scooter, motorcycle or moped, it is not uncommon for cyclists to receive lacerations during an accident.

Contact with the ground, another vehicle or debris can pierce the skin and result in lacerations that are as minor as scratches and scrapes or in severe lacerations that pose a more serious threat. As with any open wound, infections are a major concern when dealing with lacerations and damage to tendons and nerves can cause additional complications.

Justin Bieber in traffic accident in Los Angeles

Justin Bieber in traffic accident in Los Angeles | Chicago Personal Injury Lawyer News | Scoop.it
LOS ANGELES, California - Teen pop star Justin Bieber was involved in a late-night traffic accident, which Los Angeles media said injured a photographer who had been among a crowd trying to take pictures of the singer.

Via Steven M. Sweat
Jonathan Rosenfeld's insight:

Pedestrians are the most vulnerable people on the streets, with no vehicle to protect them or move them out of harm. It is because of this that laws are in place to protect pedestrians from drivers. Although there are rules and laws on when and where a pedestrian can cross the street, it is always the duty of motorists to use caution and stop for pedestrians whenever possible.

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, June 19, 2013 12:58 AM

Yet another celebrity vs. paparazzi car vs. pedestrian collision in Los Angeles.  This time Justin Bieber was trying to exit a comedy club on Sunset Boulevard, got surrounded by photographers, motioned for them to clear and, when they didn't, he pinned one of them between his Ferrari and some type of fixed object and then sped off with the photographer sustaining non-life threatening injuries.  Technically speaking, this could be a "hit and run" on his part.  


California Vehicle Code section 20001 states as follows: "The driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to a person, other than himself or herself, or in the death of a person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident and shall fulfill the requirements of Sections 20003."  


CVC 20003 states: 

"The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to or death of any person shall also give his or her name, current residence address, the names and current residence addresses of any occupant of the driver's vehicle injured in the accident, the registration number of the vehicle he or she is driving, and the name and current residence address of the owner to the person struck or the driver or occupants of any vehicle collided with, and shall give the information to any traffic or police officer at the scene of the accident. The driver also shall render to any person injured in the accident reasonable assistance, including transporting, or making arrangements for transporting, any injured person to a physician, surgeon, or hospital for medical or surgical treatment if it is apparent that treatment is necessary or if that transportation is requested by any injured person."
