Stay safe with these tips for stop-and-go traffic

Cincinnati and Florence are two busy areas near the state line. People often travel between the two areas, driving from one state to the other frequently for gatherings, personal trips and work.

Sometimes, airport traffic gets out of hand, and that can lead to serious collisions. Two busy roadways combine near the airport — I-275 and Airport Access Road. Traffic is heavy, and people tend to speed because of the potential for getting stuck at traffic lights.

Doctor continued to work despite claims of causing overdoses

Living in Florence, there is a chance that you could have to travel to Ohio for medical treatments at specialized hospitals. Columbus and Cincinnati both have hospitals that you may go to if you're involved in a crash or incident while working in the state.

Although this is out-of-network for you, it's important to know about the hospitals that you could be taken to. For instance, Mount Caramel in Columbus is close to Cincinnati and could be one hospital that patients involved in crashes would be taken to. It was recently in the news because of a doctor who continued to order excessive pain medication for patients.

How to read what a dog is trying to tell you

Many people are don't like to be around dogs because they assume the dog wants to bite them. Dogs don’t usually go into interacting with humans intending to bite, but sometimes it does happen. What most people don’t realize, though, is that dogs will usually try to communicate that they’re uncomfortable long before showing their teeth.

Because they can’t speak, dogs use several forms of body language to try to tell people to back off. These are a few of the earliest signs dogs will give to show that they are uncomfortable and want to be left alone. If you or your child does suffer a dog bite, be sure to speak with a personal injury attorney – they will go over your options for getting the resources necessary to make a full recovery.

Why do people drive despite the risks?

When you look at the risks associated with driving, it's hard to understand why people do it. Tens of thousands of people die in car accidents every year, and many more are injured. Is it actually worth it to use this means of transportation?

However, the automobile has a very central place in American identity, despite the sheer amount of lives that it takes. Researchers note that, historically speaking, this often revolved around sight-seeing and driving for pleasure. Cars gave people the chance to travel in comfort and see the country, something they had never had before. They embraced this and it continues to this day.

How can you identify a bad business partner?

Getting a bad business partner can lead to all sorts of issues and even potential lawsuits in the future. It can run your company into the ground. It can crush what you've dreamed of building for your entire life.

Even so, people make mistakes all the time when it comes to picking business partners. They overlook red flags or get too excited about the business idea to slow down and really think about how they're putting it all together. How can you avoid these issues and spot a bad business partner from the beginning?

Will that hands-free texting system really keep you safe?

It's become clear that texting while driving leads to deadly car accidents, and you know it. That's why you invested in a hands-free texting system that uses talk-to-text technology. All you have to do is push a button, and then your mobile device transcribes what you say.

You think it's a perfect solution. Now you can text without ever taking your hands off of the wheel!

Driving mistakes you (probably) made today

It often appears that accidents happen because of a major mistake. Someone runs a red light or merges into a vehicle in a neighboring lane. While that may be the final piece of the puzzle, the reality is that people make a multitude of smaller driving mistakes all the time, and these can contribute to accidents as well. You may even have made some of these driving mistakes today.

For instance, it is very common for people who share cars with a spouse or a roommate to neglect to adjust the mirrors before they drive. They just get in and pull out of the driveway, ready to get to their destination. However, failing to adjust the mirrors can create new blind spots, which can then lead to accidents while backing up or merging. Two seconds to make the adjustment to your mirrors can prevent a crash.

The '3-second-rule' isn't always enough

You may have heard of the three-second rule, which is intended to prevent tailgating. Essentially, it just means that you should always be at least three seconds behind the next car. This way, if that car stops suddenly, you have enough time to react and stop without hitting it.

It's easy to figure out. Just pick a fixed point on the side of the road -- like a sign -- and then count off seconds after that car passes the point. If it takes your car three seconds to pass it, you're far enough back.

Questions all business owners should ask

It’s no surprise that most owners are continually reiterating their company. Here are a few things every business owner should be considering:

Why are holidays a risk for dog bites?

Dog bites may seem like they'll only happen in the summer or when strays might be on the loose, but the reality is that they can happen at any time. In fact, many dog bites happen during holidays.

There are a few reasons why dogs are more prone to bite during holidays. For instance, on Halloween, people dress up and may not look the same to a pet. Their scents may be masked, which also changes what the pet perceives. This can lead to fear, aggression and a bite. Additionally, trick-or-treating children come onto the property, so a dog that is territorial may be prone to biting.
