Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the US. We had own own special dinner here in Phnom Penh but not before starting the day with a tragedy.
Very early in the morning two Europeans on a motorcycle struck a car and a pedestrian, with all three being killed. Based on how far one of them was thrown they must have been driving at an absurd speed.
For those of you wondering where the driver's helmet was...you can see it firmly strapped to what's left of the handlebars in the second photo.
So if you ride, stay safe out there and give thanks you're (hopefully) well and with family during this holiday season.
If you are planning on doing some Black Friday shopping, you should be aware of a few dangers in parking lots. Parking lots are a common hazard for drivers and vehicles alike.
Slips, falls, auto accidents, theft, harassment, and assaults are just some of the risks individuals face
while using parking lots.
Thankfully, there are a number of precautions drivers can take in order to protect themselves and their
Thanksgiving is usually one of the year’s deadliest weeks for traffic crashes. Between navigating unfamiliar roads, driving late at night or after having a few drinks, and the sheer fact that when traffic volume goes up, car crash numbers generally go up as well, it’s extremely important to drive safe and be careful over this long weekend (and throughout the entire holiday season). In fact, though many people believe that New Year’s Eve is the night when most drunk driving accidents occur, but they are wrong. Thanksgiving is the holiday that statistically has the largest number of drunk driving fatalities. PLEASE DRIVE SAFE. #HappyThanksgiving
Winter can be a dangerous season, and not just because of the risky driving conditions. Every year, thousands of people slip and fall on the ice. Sidewalks and parking lots are transformed into sheets of ice, and it’s not uncommon for accidents to happen and injuries to occur. Quick to follow those injuries are expensive liability lawsuits, as the courts look for someone to blame. More often than not, the property owner will be the party held responsible.
Even though you’ve hired a snow-clearing company, if you’re a homeowner, building/plaza owner, you’re still responsible to take the necessary steps to avoid nasty slip and fall claims.
Most slips and falls occur on high traffic areas, like sidewalks and walkways, so clearing them in a timely fashion and applying the appropriate material to melt the ice—especially in sub-zero temperatures—should be a top priority.
Although salt has been known to make icy surfaces less slippery and prevent potential injuries, it shouldn’t be the only thing you rely on. Clearing the pavement and walkways of all snow and ice is the best defense against accumulation and accidents.
