When a person is assaulted or an assault is attempted, police often want to quickly provide reassurance to the community that no threat to personal safety remains. Regardless of law enforcement claims, those accused of crimes are presumed innocent until proved otherwise. In fact, two Texas men who were recently arrested in connection to an alleged robbery are now likely wondering about their legal options.
There are a variety of different ways to legally use the roads and sidewalks in Texas and across the country. Despite the legality of certain modes of transportation, however, some -- such as scooters -- may be more difficult for drivers of more traditional motor vehicles to see because of their smaller size. Lack of physical protections can mean that a collision involving them will result in injury. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials in Texas believe that drunk driving was a factor in a recent crash involving a woman on a scooter.
Across the U.S. issues are arising from witness identification.
