feet on dashboardWith the summer season on the horizon, more and more people are taking vacations and going on road trips. Passengers kick back, get comfortable, and begin their journey to their destination. This often includes people foolishly resting their feet up on the dashboard of the vehicle. Maybe it’s a habit, maybe it’s more comfortable, or maybe you even want a better look at that fresh pedicure. Whatever the case may be, it is never a smart idea.

I cannot tell you how bewildered I am when I am driving on the highway and see a passenger in the next vehicle with their feet carelessly propped on the dash. This is the easiest way to get seriously injured in an auto accident.

man shoplifting alcoholHave you ever been detained in a store by a security officer? Did that officer use excessive force? It is important to know your rights if you have been apprehended and accused of shoplifting, whether the allegations are true or not.

When an individual is suspected of shoplifting in a retail store, he or she is likely to be detained by security or the store owner. In Louisiana, this detention may not exceed sixty minutes. Although the store personnel may keep the shoplifter detained for a reasonable time until the police arrive or the situation is resolved, the detainee has the right to remain silent and does not have to sign an admission of guilt.

I’m sure we have all noticed the major difference in traffic during our daily commute. Because of many individuals being out of work, working remotely or simply not having to follow their every day routines, the roads are much less crowded.

However, for some individuals, reality of the virus has already set in. Day after day, we watch the numbers of individuals being diagnosed with Coronavirus rapidly increase. Many families are also having to deal with death of loved ones as a result of this illness. Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIAID Director, recently revealed that between 100,000 and 240,000 of our fellow American’s could die from COVID-19.

A car accident can happen in just the blink of an eye, and the first thing many people want to do is see a doctor for his or her injuries.  But, who is going to cover your medical treatment?  woman hurt leg doctor

Over 140 million individuals in the United States receive health insurance benefits through Medicare or Medicaid. If you receive this type of coverage, it may be used to cover your hospitals bills after an auto accident. However, there is a catch.

For hundreds of millions of people around the world, Coronavirus has us on lockdown, wearing masks, maintaining social distance and self- diagnosing every odd pain, sniffle and sneeze. Most of us want to bust out of this governmentally ordered self-quarantine faster than a politician’s promise that help is over the next horizon!

Many people are going outdoors to walk, jog, and run on the streets and highways of our communities just to “get out.” man running
