Holiday Personal Safety Checklist

Most people don't equate holidays with a safety checklist. Yes, road safety is often emphasized by authorities, but holiday fun is in the offing, and most people think safety admonitions are for careless people who don't know any better. That said, there are a few instructions to keep in mind, even for the most conscientious among us.

Liability caused by falling asleep at the wheel

While everyone recognizes that driving drunk is dangerous, many people do not know that driving tired is fraught with almost as much danger. Many people are guilty of drowsy driving every day. Work, family, children, school, errands and every other demand from modern life is exhausting; there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done. But, rather than sacrifice personal or social time, people sacrifice their rest time.

Recreational marijuana is now legal in four more states

Recreational marijuana is now legal on both coasts and for millions of Americans.

Cold Weather Driving Tips

Winter weather isn't always bad to drive in depending on where you live, but in some instances it's dangerous.

The same goes for anyone who doesn't live where winters are cold but plans on taking a trip that includes cold-weather driving. Winter is beautiful, but it's capable of hiding many dangers on the road. Know what to look for to keep your family and everyone else on the road safe.

Black Friday Safety Tips

Black Friday is one of the biggest and busiest shopping days of the year, and that makes it one of the most dangerous. Some people begin shopping as soon as Thanksgiving dinner is over, others head out late at night, and others wake up early the morning after to go out and find the best possible deals on gifts for their loved ones. It can be a fun experience, but it can also be one that's quite dangerous. Before you head out with an empty trunk and a mug of coffee to shop in the middle of the night, you need to know how you can keep yourself safe. These safety tips might just save your life during the most wonderful time of the year.

Motorcycle accidents and helmet laws

Many states in the United States have laws that make it mandatory to wear helmets when operating a motorcycle. Motorcyclists that do not wear helmets may be thrice as likely to be involved in an accident that could result in fatal head injury. Safety is important consideration when driving and failure to follow rules may lead to serious penalties.
