Although we do not always hear about it, there are close to 4.7 million people bitten by dogs each and every year, and as a result, insurance companies pay out hundreds of millions yearly in dog bite claims.

Due to California’s relatively mild weather and the fact that you can enjoy the great outdoors during almost any season, Los Angeles and many other California cities have become wonderful places for people to go walking, running, and biking. With bicycle trails and bicycle lanes being regularly added throughout the state, riding your bicycle to and from work, for exercise, as a greener mode of transportation, or for sheer enjoyment, has become a very popular thing to do.
