Tips for safe bicycle commuting

There are countless benefits to bicycle commuting. It'll save you money on gas. It's good for the environment. It'll spare you the mind-numbing boredom of sitting in traffic. And, best of all, it's a great way to stay in shape (or train for that upcoming triathlon).

Auto-pedestrian accidents are not always pedestrian's fault

When pedestrians are struck by vehicles in Colorado, they are typically deemed the negligent parties even before investigations are complete. Although it is true that pedestrians are often at fault, vehicle operators might be partially to blame. Victims of auto\-pedestrian accidents are entitled to seek financial relief in the civil court, regardless of whether the drivers are criminally charged or convicted.

Violent crimes: Ex-boyfriend accused of shooting new boyfriend

Convictions on criminal charges can lead to many years of incarceration, along with a criminal record and other consequences that can have a severely negative impact on the individuals. However, the laws in Colorado adhere to the presumption of innocence, and the burden is on the prosecution to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. This will also be the case for a recently arrested man who is accused of violent crimes.

Reconstructing bicycle accidents: What experts look for

Collisions between cars and cyclists rarely end well for the latter. Investigating these accidents involves different challenges than car vs. car collisions. In many ways, it can be more difficult to determine what happened. The vast size differential between cars and bikes makes it harder to retrace the bicycle's movements leading up to the collision. Reconstructing these accidents may require digging deep to uncover all relevant evidence.

Auto-pedestrian accidents are too often blamed on the victims

Pedestrians and cyclists who are injured in road accidents are often made out to be the ones to blame for whatever happened. Colorado pedestrians must not feel intimidated by the way the media, and sometimes law enforcement, seems to use language that clears all vehicle operators and declares that no auto\-pedestrian accidents will happen if pedestrians follow the rules. Almost every report that involves a pedestrian or cyclist points out some level of contributory negligence by them.

Be aware of distracted driving habits

The National Safety Council has designated April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. While it is good to be aware of the toll taken by distracted drivers, it is also important to be aware of the role each of us plays in preventing these accidents. Distracted driving is a growing problem. The nation's driving habits are, if anything, getting worse even as the laws grow tougher.

Criminal law: 18-year-old will face murder charges as an adult

A district court judge recently denied a request to try a Colorado teenager who is facing murder charges as a juvenile. Under criminal law in Colorado, anyone who accused of serious crimes such as murder before he or she turned 18 could be charged as an adult. This teen was one of two 17-year-olds arrested and charged with murder last May. Both have turned 18 since then, and both will face the charges as adults.
