On the heels of allegations of assault in a New York nightclub, Lindsay Lohan has new legal headache on the opposite coast. Earlier this year in June the troubled starlet was involved in a car accident where she rear-ended a dump truck in Los Angeles.

About 52 percent of people who are involved in a crash are just a few miles away from their place of residence. Daughter of the late, great singer Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, learned this statistic the hard way.  Continue reading →

Before getting to the mall, shoppers have to first find a parking spot in the garages and endless lots of asphalt ringing retail establishments.
