Before a drug is made public, pharmaceutical companies should do everything in their power to make sure it is safe.

Cyclists, motorists and pedestrians have long history of issues

While finding a safe and effective way for bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists to coexist on the streets of New York City may be of current concern, it is hardly a new issue. In fact, news stories dating back to near the turn of the 20th century told bicycle-related tales that demonstrate how, when it comes to NYC traffic, the more things change, the more they remain the same.

Pokemon Go use leads to car accident

Of course, the last thing New York City needs is more distractions causing drivers to avert their eyes from the busy streets.

In spite of new laws, texting and driving on the increase in NYC

By now, everyone should be aware that distracted driving is a dangerous practice. And just like most of the rest of the country, New York has laws that are intended to address the problem. Yet it seems that far too many citizens and visitors of our fair city have yet to receive that particular message. Or if they did get the message in the form of a text sent to their phones, they may have simply ignored it.

Premises liability laws can extend to dog bites

Rapid bike messengers pose hazards for NYC pedestrians

New York is one of the most amazing cities in the world and life here can be extremely fast-paced. The bicycle messengers that shuttle food, documents and other items throughout the city exemplify the rapid rate at which things can get done. Because the Big Apple's streets get so congested, it only makes sense to have small package deliveries handled by bicyclists. They can cut through the traffic and bypass many of the obstacles that leave cars and truck crawling at a snail's pace.
