A fiery crash claimed three lives on a recent Thursday evening in a city not far from Honolulu. This was one of many fatal high-speed auto accidents that have claimed the lives of motorists in Hawaii this year. Authorities said these deaths bring the fatality rate for traffic accidents on Oahu Island to 25 so far this year -- compared to 28 by this time last year.
Authorities in Honolulu say mobile phones are modern devices with many advantages, one of which is sharing thoughts and happenings with others as they happen. However, although these gadgets can bring people together, some of the disadvantages include bringing cars and pedestrians together in a way that may cause serious injuries. Authorities are concerned about the high number of auto accidents that seem to be caused by pedestrians who fail to take proper care while they are texting.
One of the great things about Hawaii is that the weather is perfect throughout the year. This brings tourists from all points of the U.S. and from around the world to Honolulu for world renowned shopping and dining experiences.
Slipping and falling at a restaurant or grocery store can quickly turn an ordinary trip to town into a costly trip to the hospital. A slip-and-fall injury can lead to expensive treatment and prevent you from being able to return to work for a period of time. This downtime can quickly take a toll on both your finances and your emotions.
