Let’s face it. Most people with a garage don’t use it for the original purpose it was intended for – to store their car in. Instead, many garages have become breeding grounds for hoarding junk and never-to-be-used-again items. But this often-neglected outbuilding makes for valuable storage space. So, if yours has become cluttered and chaotic, then now could be the time for a good clean out -especially if you are getting ready to sell you house.
It may be surprising to hear that one of the leading causes of death among children is auto injuries. This is often due to parents not taking proper precautions. It is estimated that of children under 12 years of age who died in car crashes in 2015, 35% of them were not in a safety seat or using a seat belt. For parents, just a little knowledge can go a long way in ensuring children’s safety in vehicles.
When trucks pass each other on the highway it is considered proper protocol to let the passing driver know when their truck has cleared the slower truck so that the passing truck driver can merge back into the slower lane. This helps four-wheelers (regular cars) and faster moving traffic as it frees up that lane for them to pass. Thus, it speeds along traffic and makes it safer for the passing truck to know it has cleared the slower truck(s). As personal motor coach (on a truck chassis) with fifth-wheel driver, I’ve been extended this courtesy by other large vehicles and commercial truck drivers.
