Car owners everywhere have heard an ear-splitting crash above their heads. There wasn't a gunshot or a meteor strike, as some have described the noise, but their sunroof cracked and shattered without warning.

Your sunroof may also be in danger of shattering unexpectedly. Although reports of exploding sunroofs date back to 1995, there has been a massive spike in reports since 2017. Affected cars come from nearly every major manufacturer.

Do you lane split on your motorcycle? Is it safe?

The year-round beautiful weather is one of the reasons people love Los Angeles. Unlike the motorcycle riders in other states, those in California do not have to store their bikes away during the winter months. If you are one of the many in this state who enjoy being on your motorcycle throughout the year, you have probably had your share of close calls with other, larger vehicles.

Perhaps one of the scariest moments on your bike are when you are stuck in traffic that is not moving because of construction, an accident or other reasons. You can never be sure that drivers coming up behind you are paying attention. This is one good reason for the careful use of lane splitting.

As the smoke clears, a storm brews over Notre Dame

While the Cathedral of Notre Dame smolders, so do the emotions of European and Parisian authorities. The stone structure, some artwork and various relics survived the flames. However, flames destroyed the iconic spire and other structures under restoration.

The Paris public prosecutor announced that the city has launched an investigation into the cause of the fire. It is expected that the investigation will likely be long and very complex, much like the investigations into the devastating California fires.

Three women filed a lawsuit against Uber after they were sexually assaulted by two men posing as their Uber drivers. These drivers targeted the intoxicated women on three separate incidents.

The women's lawsuit claims that Uber has known about predators posing as fake drivers since November 2014 but failed to warn their customers. Uber advertises that they aim to provide a safe ride home. Sadly, predators have used it as an opportunity to attack vulnerable people.

Did the Ford Motor Company recall your car this year? Ford announced three major recalls in February because of serious safety concerns. These problems affect everything from internal technology to door latches.

So far, only five major accidents have happened as a result. However, millions of drivers everywhere are at risk.

Cough syrup recall: Is your child using a deadly medicine?

Your children's cough syrup may be contaminated with a dangerous bacterium. A nationwide recall has been issued for Kingston Pharma's NATURALS Cough Syrup + Mucus for babies. Due to the contaminants, it has the potential to cause life-threatening illnesses.

The FDA found that one in ten bottles of this product had low levels of Bacillus cereus and two in ten bottles had low levels of Bacillus circulans.

Your "on-call" shift may entitle you to wages in California

disappointing call.jpeg

Imagine your boss assigned you an on-call shift tomorrow for your position at a retail store. You can't schedule social activities or work at another job because they might need you. Two hours before your shift, you call in, but they cancel your shift and refuse to compensate you.

Employees at Tilly's experienced this exact situation. Their employer failed to report their on-call hours as paid time, which is a violation of California's Wage Order 7. Tilly's argued that "calling in" was not reporting for work. Courts disagreed.

Are you protected from dangerous emotional support animals?

An emotional support dog bit a 5-year-old girl who tried to pet it at the airport in 2017. The incident sparked a $1.1 million law suit and left the girl's face permanently scarred. In 2018, United Airlines wouldn't let a woman and her emotional support peacock on a flight.

While emotional support animals (ESAs) can help their owners lead normal lives, the legal system is far behind on the subject. That's because emotional support animals are often confused with service animals. This confusion puts bystanders and pet owners at risk.
