As the warm days of summer begin, many California residents and tourists from other locales engage in more recreational activities. One such activity that many seem to enjoy is riding all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and motorcycles. Unfortunately, however, riding on ATVs can often result in serious injuries or even death in the event of an accident. One such crash recently claimed the life of a 29-year-old woman in Sonoma County.
Many people here in California may be familiar with the comedic ranting of Jim Gaffigan; particularly the one where he sarcastically praises the invention of a breakfast HotPocket.

Multiple-vehicle car accidents can prove especially traumatic for California residents who must endure them, not to mention the families left behind to mourn those who perish.

Of the top fears that people have reported around the world, flying is one of the top ten. The main factor for people revolves around malfunctions that can occur with the planes themselves.
