The 4 Ds of dangerous driving

Hazards abound on the roadway. There’s road construction, weather conditions, debris, potholes and more to deal with every time you get in the car. In addition to contending with those, of course, you also have to pay attention to other drivers, obey the rules of the road watch your speed, and drive defensively.

In spite of your best efforts, your safety on the road could be compromised by other drivers’ poor choices and bad behaviors. Among the most dangerous of bad driving behaviors are what experts call the “four Ds.”

Planning your holiday visitation schedule: tips and tricks

The holiday season is well underway, with Hanukkah underway and Kwanzaa and Christmas fast approaching. For many families, this is a time of celebration. For others, it is a time of anxiety. Families affected by divorce, for example, must address the complex situation of creating a custody and visitation schedule for the holiday season.

This is no easy task. Spending the holidays away from their children is a painful thought for any parent. However, creating a clear schedule can prevent many headaches and complications. When it comes to creating your holiday visitation schedule, rely on these straightforward tips and tricks.

Kentucky parking lot injuries on the rise throughout December

You may assume that it’s safe to run to the mall to do a bit of Christmas shopping. You drive out, park your car and head into your favorite store to cross a few items off your holiday shopping list. Your mind is on the task at hand, but you’ll be safe, right? The answer to that might not be as straightforward as you think.

The National Safety Council reports that parking lot injuries and accidents spike on Black Friday and continue at a rapid pace throughout December. There are more than 50,000 reported parking lot accidents across the country each year, resulting in 500 deaths and more than 60,000 injuries.

Honda issues massive ROV recall

Off-roading is a very popular activity here in Kentucky, and the Commonwealth has thousands of miles of trails, parks and campgrounds for tourists and locals alike. People use recreational off-road vehicles (ROVs) to get to hunting blinds all over the state, and for otherwise getting out and enjoying nature. These vehicles are smaller and more versatile than conventional vehicles, making them easier to maneuver in hilly or muddy terrain and thus perfect for taking to the great outdoors.

ROV owners need to be aware of a massive recall recently issued by American Honda Motor Company of Torrance, California, however. The recalled vehicles have an incorrectly installed throttle body that could ignite, causing fires and posing a burn risk. The company has already received several fire reports, hence the reason behind the recall. Affected owners should take their ROV to a licensed dealership for repairs.

Late-in-life divorce is on the rise

Research shows that couples over the age of 50 are divorcing at a rate double what they did just a generation ago. For couples over the age of 65, that number is even higher, as these marriages are ending three times more often than they did in 1990. This is in spite of the fact that the overall divorce rate remains steady at about 50 percent of first-time marriages ending in a split.

There isn’t a single cause why late-in-life divorces have risen so rapidly in the past 30 years, but there are a few likely contributing factors.

How can a prenuptial agreement affect a Kentucky divorce?

A prenuptial agreement, commonly referred to as a “prenup,” is a document that divides and apportions assets and debts in the event of divorce. In prior years, prenups were common mostly among the very wealthy, but the economic – and social – stigmas associated with them have largely disappeared. Nowadays, couples of all economic levels may find prenups helpful.

What can prenups do?

Minor accidents can cause major injuries

When we think of car accidents that cause injuries, we usually assume there’s been a high-speed accident. Obviously, two vehicles colliding at highway speeds can result in serious injuries and extensive property damage. Did you know, however, that even slow-speed, relatively minor crashes like “fender benders” can still cause major injuries?

You should visit a doctor following any car wreck, even if you have no symptoms at the scene. Injuries may take hours or days to fully appear, and if you end up bringing a claim for compensation, medical documentation is vitally important.

Fighting back against Kentucky DWI/DUI charges

Imagine you were on your way home from a party and you got pulled over. The officer smelled alcohol on your breath, so he administered several field sobriety tests and a breathalyzer. Following that, you were placed under arrest for suspicion of driving while intoxicated (also known as driving under the influence).

Given the potential serious consequences that come along with a DWI/DUI conviction, you know that you need to aggressively fight back against the charges you’re facing. You might not know that it is actually possible to challenge both the evidence against you and the charges pending in a DWI/DUI case.

Are millennials ‘killing’ divorce?

The millennial generation, those between the ages of 22 and 37 in 2018, face blame for negatively impacting everything from sit-down restaurants to the diamond industry. One new thing that millennials stand accused of “killing” is divorce.

Divorce is down among millennials and Gen Xers (those between 38 and 53 in 2018) alike for a few different reasons. First and foremost is that fact that both of these demographics are waiting longer to get married. Statistically, waiting until the late 20s or early 30s to marry results in a smaller chance of divorce, while couples who marry in their late teens and early 20s are more likely to split.
