What Kind of Driving Is Worse Than Drunk Driving?

What Kind of Driving Is Worse Than Drunk Driving?

 

Driving is something that pretty much every single adult does every day. They drive to get to work, to run errands, and take their kids wherever they need to go. Driving is such a part of everyone’s day to day life that no one really bats an eye at it. Everyone is used to driving, which makes driving more dangerous.

When people deal with something on a daily basis, they tend to forget how risky that something can be. This is definitely the case with driving. On its own, driving can be very dangerous. When travelling that quickly, it doesn’t take much for something to go wrong. This is why a driver needs to keep their focus on the road and the task at hand. Looking away for even a second can have deadly consequences.

 Distracted Driving Isn’t Harmless

Distracted driving often seems harmless, which is why millions of people do it every single day. However, these people often fail to realize that by distracting themselves like that, they are increasing their chances of being in an accident. Cellphone use while driving is responsible for roughly 1.6 million car accidents in the US each year. This is around 64% of all car accidents in the US.

Cars are large, heavy objects moving at very high speeds. They need precise control to keep them operating the way we want them to. One small jerk of the steering wheel while driving at 50mph can send the car careening in an unintended direction. If a person takes their eyes off of the car in front of them, they might not see it slam on the brakes, which means they won’t have time to stop their car before slamming into the one in front.

It doesn’t cause much to cause a distraction, which is why certain activities should never be performed while driving. Some of these activities include:

  • Texting
  • Phone calls, hands-free or not
  • Smartphone usage
  • Eating
  • Applying makeup
  • Looking for something in the car
  • Talking to other passengers

All of these activities seem harmless, but reduce a driver’s concentration, thereby increasing their chances of being in an accident.

In some studies, it has been found that texting and driving actually reduces a driver’s response time more than being drunk. This means that texting and driving is more dangerous than driving drunk.

 California Laws against Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is such a big deal that the state of California even has laws against it. What started out as laws against using a cellphone, expanded to cover other, common activities that could be considered distracted driving.

If any over the age of 18 is caught using a cellphone or other electronic devices, without hands-free, while driving will face infraction level charges, which means some small fines. Anyone under the age of 18 using any sort of electronic device, even hands-free, while face an infraction and possible suspension of their driver’s license or permit.

 Don’t Drive While Distracted

When driving, it is very easy to become distracted. In most cases, looking away for a second seems harmless, and sometimes it is. However, there are plenty of examples of when a person looked away for a second and caused a car accident. If the driver is lucky, they will be able to walk away for the incident. Unfortunately, not all drivers are lucky.

Distracted driving affects everyone, from fresh new drivers to seasoned veterans. It is every driver’s problem, and everyone needs to commit to the idea of remaining focused while behind the wheel of a vehicle.


Is Your Loved One Really in Trouble, or Is It Another Scam?

Is Your Loved One Really in Trouble, or Is It Another Scam?

Is Your Loved One Really in Trouble, or Is It Another Scam?

 

When it comes to helping out friends and family members, many people will do whatever they can to help, without question. After all, when a person truly cares about an individual, they will do everything in their power to help that loved one, no matter how big or small the task may be. While this is a great trait to have, it can get a person into some unexpected trouble if they are not careful.

While you and your loved ones only have the best of intentions, there are people out there with more sinister ideas. Scammers are always looking for quick and easy ways to make some money. They have found that one of the best ways to do so is by pretending to be a friend in need. This is why a person has to be careful, and think before they act, before rushing in to help out a loved one.

 The Scam Itself

Scammer have dozens of different schemes to take money from hard working individuals. One of the more common scams that con-artists love to use, is to pretend to be a loved one in financial trouble.

At first, this sounds like it would be an easy scam to identify, since it is unlikely that the scammer looks even slightly like the loved one they are pretending to be. However, that is why the scam is never run in person. It is only ever run online, typically through email.

The scammer will send their intended target an email claiming to be a friend or family member who is out of the country and in financial trouble. Chances are, they’ve gathered some information on the person they are claiming to be from social media accounts. This lets them add a little more credibility to their scheme. However, this does not make their plan fool proof.

The email will ask that money be sent to them, either through money transfer or through gift cards. The email may even state that the person is embarrassed by this and ask that the victim not mention this to anyone else. They will also likely ask the victim to hurry. This is where the person can find all of the proof of the scam.

 The Signs That This Is a Scam

There are several things a person should look at when they receive an email like this. These points can quickly determine the credibility of the email in question.

  1. The email address. The email app may show a loved one’s name under sender, but the actual email address that sent the message will likely be some random assortment of numbers and letters. This is a dead giveaway of a scam email.
  2. Wire money. Scammers loved getting money wired to them or through gift cards. This kind of money exchange is final, and is tougher to trace. This means once the money is sent, it is gone forever. Never send money to anyone unless absolutely sure of who it is going to.
  3. Scared and in trouble. These simple statements create a sense of urgency, which is intended to throw the victim into some sort of rushed, panicked state. This makes the victim less likely to scrutinize the email and instructions. Scammers don’t want victims to think, they want them to act, so always take the time to think things through.
  4. Don’t tell anyone. Of course the scammer doesn’t want you to talk to anyone else, since doing so could blow the whole scam. A quick call to the person’s loved ones, or even the person themselves, can easily tell the victim that the person is safe and sound at home.

These are the obvious signs that the email is a scam and the best ways to avoid scams like this, and others.

 Don’t be Fooled by Scammers

No one wants to get scammed out of their hard earned money, however no one wants to leave a loved one in a tough situation. This is why these scams can be so difficult for people to ignore. They want to help their loved ones in any way that they can. Unfortunately this blind desire to help can open up a person to getting scammed.

Luckily, this kind of scam can easily be avoided with a little communication. If a person is unsure of the authenticity of the email, just call or text the person in question. There’s a good chance they will be able to talk to the supposed in trouble person,

What are some of the most outrageous scams that someone has tried to pull on you? Share it in the comments below and give everyone a good laugh, as well as help others avoid the scam in the future. By sharing these scams across the web, we make it less likely that anyone will fall for them again.

Don’t Let Road Rage Ruin Your Life

Don’t Let Road Rage Ruin Your Life

 

With summer in full swing, people from all over the state of California, and the rest of the country, are busy enjoying their summer vacation. While this is fun for a lot of people, the trips can be a bit taxing. Nobody likes to be stuck in a car for extended periods of time. Doing that can make just about anyone cranky. If this affects the driver, it can easily lead to a bit of road rage.

Pretty much every driver out there assumes they are better than everyone else at driving. Their feelings often get “proven” when another driver makes a bad decision. This can lead to road rage, which if not kept in check, can quickly spiral out of control. One Alabama woman recently learned this fact the hard way.

 Road Rage Shooting Incident

In Dodge City, Alabama, couple were driving their car when things got a bit heated between them and another driver. As their road rage grew worse, the woman pulled a gun out. She attempted to shoot the other driver, but missed. She somehow ended up shooting her husband.

The wife was arrested and her husband taken to a local hospital in critical condition after being shot in the head. The wife is facing charges of attempted murder, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment.

 Tips to Deal with Road Rage

The fact that people have very little patience when they are tired and stressed is no secret. Everyone gets a bit cranky like this. For many people, they are most cranky and stressed when they are behind the wheel of vehicle. A person has to deal with so many people while driving, and it’s a good chance that they are just as upset. This is why driving creates prime conditions for road rage.

At the end of the day, no one wants to drive while angry. It just isn’t fun. Luckily there are ways to avoid and/or manage road rage.

  • Be kind. A person can prevent road rage from spreading by not shouting at other drivers or using rude gestures.
  • Drive safely. This not only means following the rules of the road, but expecting other drivers to not follow those rules. By being prepared for another driver to make a bad decision, a person is less likely to be caught off guard and become enraged.
  • Plan ahead. While not always possible, planning ahead and leaving at a decent time will make drives less stressful. When a person is running late, they become stressed and more susceptible to road rage.
  • Remain calm. This can be done by taking deep breaths and either listening to calming music or podcasts that get a person thinking about things other than driving. This also includes being understanding of other drivers and recognizing that everyone makes mistakes from time to time.
  • Stay safe. If an angry person ever gets out of their car to talk to a person, that person should make sure their doors are locked and keep on driving. If the other driver begins to follow the person, don’t stop. That person should keep driving and either call the police or drive to the nearest police station.

By doing these things, a person stands a better chance of not getting upset themselves, and not upsetting other drivers as well.

 Stay Calm and Safe This Summer

Driving is a big part of everyday life, especially if someone is driving to their vacation. A person should never let road rage ruin their summer vacation, or their life. Things can change in an instant, especially when someone is angry. Don’t let that happen. Stay calm and remember that every other driver on the road is just trying to get to somewhere alive like you are.

Do you have a favorite summer vacation drive? Have you ever had a terrifying road rage encounter before? If so, tell us about it in the comments below.


Would You Let Your Kids Ride on the Roof of Your Car?

Would You Let Your Kids Ride on the Roof of Your Car?

 

Summer is here, and this leads to a lot of people looking for ways to beat the heat. Arguably one of the most common ways for people to cool of is to go swimming. Whether it is at the beach, river, lake, or pool, people love to swim. While some people are okay with traveling to places like pools or rivers, some people would rather have their own private pool for cooling off.

However, installing a full-sized pool is not a cheap endeavor. That alone costs several thousands of dollars, then there are all of the maintenance costs. This is why some people choose to go with more temporary and cheaper options, such as inflatable pools. While these pools are a bit tiny for adults, they can be perfect for children. They are an affordable alternative that don’t require a parent driving their kids somewhere.

This wasn’t the case for one Illinois woman when she got an inflatable pool for her kids. Getting the pool inflated turned into a trip that landed the mother in some very serious trouble with local law enforcement.

 How Not to Transport a Pool

A woman from Dixon, Illinois was recently arrested after she made some not-so-great parenting decisions. Things probably started out innocently enough. The weather was hot and her daughters wanted to go swimming. So she gets an inflatable pool. However, she doesn’t have a good way to inflate the pool, so she takes the pool to a friend’s house to get it filled up. Once inflated, the pool doesn’t fit in the car.

This is where the woman made a very terrible decision.

She decided to put the pool on the roof of her car, an Audi Q5. Instead of tying the pool down to keep it from flying away while she drove, she somehow decided to have her daughters sit in the pool on the roof of the car. Needless to say, once people saw someone driving a vehicle with two children on the top of the car, they called the police.

Police officers arrested the woman on multiple charges. She faces two counts of child endangerment, two counts of reckless conduct, and one count of failing to a secure a passenger between the ages of 8 and 16.

 There Are Better Ways to Cool Off

Everyone can understand the desire to cool down during the summer months. While the heat can make people do crazy things, most parents would agree that having children ride on the top of a moving vehicle is a very bad idea. Even if it is to help cool off. One wrong move and the woman’s two girls could have wound up seriously hurt, or worse. That risk is not worth a little bit of cooling off.

In this instance, it would have been the few extra bucks to just buy a small air pump, then no one would have ended up in jail.

Have you ever done something crazy to help avoid the heat? If so why not share it, if not, tell us your favorite way to beat the summer heat. You never know, doing so may just help someone else stay cool, and avoid jail time, this summer.

Yes, Driving Under the Influence Is a Terrible Idea

Yes, Driving Under the Influence Is a Terrible Idea

Yes, Driving Under the Influence Is a Terrible Idea

 

Most people would agree that getting into a vehicle accident would be horrible. After all, car collisions can be catastrophic and even fatal. However, despite the fact that no one wants to get into an accident, there are some people out there who participate in risky behavior that increases the chances of an accident occurring.

One of the easiest instances to avoid, yet is still one of the most common, is drunk driving. Driving while intoxicated, or high on marijuana and other drugs, is a terrible idea. When a person is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, not only are they less in control of their bodies, their thinking is impaired as well. This can lead to risky behavior that can easily cause an accident. That is why driving under the influence is illegal everywhere in the country, including California.

 Drunk Driving Statistics

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) roughly 10,500 people died due to alcohol impaired driving in 2016. This amounted to just over 25% of all traffic related deaths in the United States. In 2016, over 1 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), which is about 1% of all self-reported incidents of drunk driving in the US.

The CDC also reports that drugs are involved in roughly 16% of motor vehicle accidents. They also report that incidents of marijuana usage and driving are increasing with each year. 13% percent of nighttime and weekend drivers have marijuana in their systems.

The CDC has also found that drivers involved in alcohol-related fatal crashes were 4.5 times more likely to have prior DUI’s on their record than drivers with no alcohol in their systems.

 The Law Here in California

Due to the increased risk factors associated with driving under the influence, there are federal laws and states laws all over the country that criminalize the act. Here in California, Vehicle Code (VC) 23152 makes it illegal to drive a vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

An important note is that according to this law, drugs are any intoxicating substance. This means that drugs can be anything from marijuana to prescription medicine. Basically, if something makes a person loopy or inebriated, they should not be driving with that substance in their system.

DUI is typically a misdemeanor charge, unless a person has more than four DUI charges against them in a 10 year period or the accident hurt/killed someone.

Misdemeanor penalties for a DUI can include:

  • Informal probation.
  • Maximum of 1 year in jail.
  • A base fine of no more than $1,000.
  • A suspended driver’s license.
  • DUI school.
  • Victim restitutions.
  • Community service.
  • AA/NA meetings.
  • Impounded vehicle.
  • Instillation of a breathalyzer ignition system.

Felony charges of DUI can include:

  • Formal probation.
  • Prison time anywhere from 1 year to life.
  • Base fine of no more than $5,000.
  • DUI school.
  • Victim restitution.
  • Community service.
  • AA/NA meetings.
  • Impounded vehicle.
  • Instillation of a breathalyzer ignition system.

Aside from the above, regardless of charges, a drunk driving charge or accident can greatly increase insurance rates for a driver as well.

 Never Drink and Drive

There is no excuse for driving under the influence, especially with today’s modern technology. Thanks to apps like Lyft and Uber, there is always a way for a person to get a ride home. Failing that, there is always public transportation such as buses and taxis. Lastly, a person can typically call family or friends for a ride. Most people would rather be woken up in the middle of the night by a drunk friend asking for a ride rather than by an officer telling them their loved one had an accident while driving drunk.

If a person is at home and finds themselves craving a snack, they don’t have to go out to get pick one up. Many restaurants deliver, and the ones that don’t, can still offer delivery through apps such as Grubhub and Uber Eats. Even Amazon can make quick deliveries of some items in big cities.

All of this amounts to the fact that no one should ever get behind the wheel while intoxicated due to alcohol or drugs. Doing so would not only risk the driver’s life, but the lives of any passengers, as well as the lives of passing drivers and pedestrians. Don’t ever put so many people at risk. Stay safe and let someone else drive after having a few beers.


How Are You Keeping Your Kids Busy This Summer?

How Are You Keeping Your Kids Busy This Summer?

How Are You Keeping Your Kids Busy This Summer?

 

Summer is here. For kids, this is the best time of the year, second only to Christmas time. Summer means no school and the freedom to do whatever they want. For parents, summer isn’t as exciting. Adults still have to work, but now the kids are home while are off making a living. Kids can get into all kinds of mischief if left unsupervised and bored for extended periods of time. This leaves parents with a bit of a dilemma.

When it comes to keeping kids entertained over the summer, many parents have a tough time. After all, they aren’t teachers and many do have to go to work. Even if a parent is a stay at home parent, summer can be tough. Those eight hours of school really keep children busy. Plus there is the fact that many of the fun things that are advertised on TV are very expensive, and most people do not have that kind of money. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to keep kids entertained over summer break without breaking the bank.

 How to Keep Kids Entertained

Keep kids busy is no simple task, which is something parents figure out very quickly when their kids get any extended break from school. Kind of makes you think teachers should get paid more, doesn’t it? Regardless, with school out for summer, it is up to the parent to keep their child entertained, or at the very least, busy until school starts up again in fall. Here are a few, simple and affordable ideas on how to keep your kids busy this summer:

  1. Chore Charts – A quick and simple way to keep kids, maybe not so much entertained, but busy, would be to institute a chore chart. They might not appreciate it, but it can be helpful for the parent and beneficial for the child in the long run. Chores help teach children about responsibility, and can be a great way for them to earn some money that they can then spend on things they want.
  2. The Library – A good entertainment option would be to take the kids to the library once a week. Most public libraries have summer reading programs that can give more reasons for kids to read books. Just be sure to let the child pick out books that are age appropriate, but interesting to them. You want them to keep reading, and not get discouraged by big, complicated words. Reading is a great way to spend away hours upon hours of the summer.
  3. Camp – One option would be sending kids to summer camp, which can be a great adventure for the child. However, summer camp can be a bit expensive. There is always the cheaper alternative of day camp. Day camps are great ways to keep kids entertained during the day without sending them away for extended periods.
  4. Board Games – Board games can be another way to keep children entertained over the summer. There are so many different games out there, that there is one for everyone. Plus, many modern games teach skills like teamwork, resource management, critical thinking, and strategy. Plus, with their replay-ability board games can be a very good investment.
  5. Be Bored – Lastly, one of the best things that you can do is just let your child be bored. As bad as that may sound, being bored can actually be a good thing. Many studies have found that boredom leads to creativity. This is more important now more than ever since there are so many devices out there to help us alleviate boredom. Kids don’t actually have a lot of time to be bored nowadays, so letting them be bored from time to time is actually a good thing. It can lead to more creativity in your child.

 Don’t Stress, and Just Have Fun

While keeping kids entertained over the summer can be a tough job, it is possible to do without spending boatloads of money on extravagant outings. Following some of the above ideas can be great ways to keep kids entertained and/or busy this summer without straining your bank account.

While a parent may feel the need to make sure their child is entertained for the entirety of the summer break, it is important to realize that not only is that not possible, especially for working parents, but it is unrealistic. Boredom happens to everyone, and can often lead to great new ideas. So don’t worry too much if your child isn’t entertained 24/7, it can lead to some creative new ideas.
