Is riding a scooter on a sidewalk illegal?

If you're walking on a sidewalk and suddenly have to jump out of the way to avoid someone on a scooter, you know the dangers that they pose. Interestingly, mopeds, motor bikes and even scooters without power are banned from sidewalks in California. Why? In cases where a pedestrian can't get out of the way, the scooter could cause fairly serious injuries. Bruising, fall injuries and other hazards make them unsafe for sidewalk use.

Simple advice to prevent motorcycle injuries

Sometimes it's the simplest advice that offers the best results in terms of motorcycle safety. The easier and simpler a piece advice happens to be, the more likely motorcyclists will follow the advice and benefit from it. With this in mind, here are some great tips to prevent motorcycle crashes from State Farm Insurance:

7-vehicle crash leaves several injured

When one driver makes an error, that person puts everyone else on the roads in danger. A single error could result in multiple vehicles crashing, which could lead to injuries and deaths. Even if the initial accident is caused by a small vehicle, the impacts of larger vehicles or the involvement of pedestrians can quickly lead to high injury rates and fatality counts.

Amputation and phantom limb pain

Amputation injuries are not uncommon after a catastrophic car accident that results in severe damage to a leg or arm. If you have suffered the amputation of a limb as a result of a car accident, you are no doubt struggling to adjust to post-amputation life. One thing you could be dealing with in this regard is what doctors refer to as "phantom limb" pain.

Osteomyelitis: A troublesome complication of broken bones

Osteomyelitis is a bone infection. There are many types of germs that can cause this, and not all cases come from injuries. However, after a car accident or other injury, you are more likely to have an injury that allows bacteria to spread through the body. A simple cut or a broken bone that breaks through the skin both have the potential to cause osteomyelitis.

Prevent this common motorcycle accident

Motorcycle riders in California -- and everywhere else in the United States -- are cautious and careful to prevent accidents, for the most part. However, a lot of motorcyclists -- even experienced ones -- do not have the basic safety training required to know certain tricks for accident prevention. For this reason, motorcyclists should always strive to continue learning new safety technique no matter how long they've been on the road.

The most common excuses for road rage

The summer driving season may be over in a few weeks, but recent events that have garnered national headlines suggest that road rage is just as prominent and dangerous as it ever has been. Indeed, there are occasional frustrations that come with driving in such a densely populated metro area, but the threat of road rage is becoming an unfortunate reality that drivers will have to deal with.

What you should be afraid of at water parks

The “dog days of summer” may be over soon as school will be back in session at the end of the month. However, Sacramento’s warm weather will continue long enough for water parks to be an attraction well into the fall. In fact, the popularity of water parks continue to grow as developers find new ways to make waterslides feel like roller coasters.

Are there drugs to treat traumatic brain injuries?

While there are no current medications to cure the damage caused by a traumatic brain injury (TBI), some new medications are in the works that could help significantly in the future. In some fantastic news for those who have been affected by a TBI, it's believed that a new drug can help reverse memory failure caused by TBIs.

Common signs of nursing home neglect to watch out for
