pet safety during summer

Taking care of others isn’t always easy. Often times, the other person or creature needs constant supervision to keep them safe and healthy. Without a constant, watchful eye, the dependent could cause trouble, get hurt, or worse. This is often the case with pets, especially dogs.

Remember to Slow Down in School Zones

penalties for speeding in school zone

Every driver knows that speed limits can vary from place. After all, a person wouldn’t expect to be able to drive freeway speeds through a residential neighborhood. These differences exist for safety reasons. It wouldn’t be safe for the driver, or pedestrians to fly down a residential street at those speeds.

By reducing speeds, a driver has more control of their vehicle and is less likely to get into a horrible accident. A driver can expect speed limits to slow down in areas where cars will be merging into traffic, or wherever a lot of pedestrians will be present. Roads near schools are perfect examples of this.

The front door to a home is a portal to safety for many people. Once a person is home, they no longer have to worry about people or the outside world. They are in their own personal kingdom. They make the rules, and get to do whatever they want. A person’s home is their sanctuary, which is why people are often very selective of who they allow through the front door.

Exhausted homeowners may not want to deal with whoever may be knocking on their door. While rare, it could be a pushy salesperson trying to sell some product that the person doesn’t want or need. Dealing with that is not fun. However, maybe the person’s child may want to open the door. At what age should a child be allowed to do that?
