Statistics about bicycle crashes often claim that bikers are to blame the majority of the time. But if you dig past the numbers, you may find that the official record can be deceptive.

Many streets in Los Angeles would be made safer for bicyclists if they had a bike lane. But adding bike lanes is surprisingly difficult in California — and for a reason few might suspect.

Californians love their dogs. Residents across the state own pet dogs, most of which are well-trained, friendly and carefully monitored by their owners while out of the house.
