Each time our children ride in passenger vehicles, they must either ride in car seats or boosters or be strapped in by seat belts. If not, parents can be ticketed and fined.
Have you ever ridden with someone who just makes you nervous? Maybe you have a friend who constantly turns around to talk to everyone in the car, and you do not think they pay enough attention to the road. Maybe you ride to work with a coworker who is always sending text messages, trying to get a jump on the work for the day even before you get to the office.
People travel more around the holidays, which means that there is more traffic on the interstates and highways. Unfortunately, that uptick in travel also means that there are going to be more car wrecks. This is partly because there are more vehicles on the road, but it can also be because some drivers are distracted.
Car wrecks are difficult to handle because you have to deal with the physical impacts of the crash and the emotional toll it takes on you. Dealing with the vast range of emotions can be a challenge, so you might need to seek out mental health help from someone who can help you work through them.
Car crashes can lead to catastrophic injuries that dramatically alter the course of a person's life. When you are in this type of wreck, you might feel hopeless. Pulling yourself out of this type of situation can be difficult, but you do have options that can help you.
With school out for the summer, teens are going to be driving around more than most other times of the year. Unfortunately, this can be hazardous to other drivers because teens aren't the safest drivers. Part of the reason they are unsafe is that they are inexperienced. They don't have the skills needed to react to certain situations, which makes them dangerous.
If you see any safety ads trying to stop distracted driving, they probably focus on texting and driving. That's because it's one of the most common and most dangerous types of distraction.
In recent years, there has been a growing problem on airline flights around the country: so-called emotional support animals. While some animals do receive special training and service-animal designation, most of these “emotional support” animals are clearly just pets that people want to bring on a plane without consequences or extra costs.
