Family seeks answers after alleged police brutality causes death

Police in Arizona and elsewhere are charged with the duty of protecting and serving the public. In some circumstances, officers must apply significant force in order to bring a volatile situation under control; however, unless the person presents a significant threat there is seldom the need to use deadly force. Sadly, there have been many recent incidents when alleged police brutality resulted in death

Fatigued driving major factor in countless auto accidents

In 2013, an estimated 72,000 crashes were caused by tired motorists. In Arizona, more than 1,780 auto accidents were attributed to drowsy or fatigued drivers. Experts claim that going longer than a day without sleep and then trying to drive is equivalent to driving while intoxicated.

Auto accidents may result in drivers facing serious charges

There are many hazards that motorists face when they travel Arizona highways. Unfortunately, one of the greatest threats to their safety is the actions of negligent drivers, who often cause serious auto accidents. Recently, a driver was formally accused of causing the deaths of a young woman and her passenger.
