Who’s driving your kids to and from school? Are they safe?

Every parent has fears when the kids are old enough to start going to school. Will the kids make friends? Will they learn and perform well in school? But one of the most significant fears of parents when they start sending their kids to school is safety. Will the kids be safe, especially when traveling to and from school?

The key to finding the right helmet to protect your head

Whether people use their bicycle as their sole source of transportation or simply as a way to exercise and enjoy nature, having a properly fitted helmet is critical to protecting their safety and wellbeing. Even in the most violent of collisions, bicyclists in Tennessee who do their research and invest in a high-quality helmet are much more likely to survive than those who do not have a good fitting helmet or opt not to wear a helmet at all. 

What should I do if involved in a hit and run?

It can happen to any Shelby driver, no matter how safe you are. Hit and runs will turn your world upside down, potentially depriving you of a reliable vehicle and leaving you responsible for an exorbitant repair bill. There are steps you can take to improve the situation however, as explained by State Farm below.

Do not underestimate the dangers of texting while driving

It is the same for most people in Tennessee and throughout the country: While everyone knows that texting while driving is dangerous, but almost no one actually changes their behavior. Almost everyone uses their smart phones while driving, risking the lives of everyone else on the road.

What qualifies one to drive a school bus in Tennessee?

The stress associated with getting your kids to school each day in Shelby should be limited to the struggles that come with getting them out of bed or to remember to hand their homework in. How they get to school should be a worry-free process: just have them take the bus. Yet in doing so, you place a great deal of trust in the person hired by the school district to drive your kids around. 

Right-of-way laws in Tennessee

Despite the attempts to raise awareness of the issue of recognizing motorcycles on Shelby's roads, many motorists still have a difficult time doing so. Sadly, such inattentive motorists likely suffer the least due to their carelessness (be it deliberate or unintentional). Indeed, information shared by the Insurance Information Institute shows that there were 5,286 motorcyclists killed on American roads in 2016. One of more common excuses offered up by motorists who have struck motorcyclists is that they were not aware that motorcycles had the same rights to the use of the road as traditional vehicles.
