Celebrating Thanksgiving During A Pandemic

Celebrating Thanksgiving During A Pandemic

Some of us thought the COVID-19 pandemic would be over by Thanksgiving. Some of us assumed that the pandemic wouldn’t have a major impact on our holiday plans. The truth is that the past few weeks have revealed that not only is COVID-19 still here, but it’s also gotten worse. This has many of us wondering how we should handle Thanksgiving.

Traveling On The West Coast

On October 13, the three west coast states released a press release that outlined their guidelines for traveling during the holiday season. It wasn’t the news many of us wanted to hear. The joint press release the three west coast states issued urged limiting travel to, “work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care and safety and security.”

Changes To California 2020 Voting System

Changes To California 2020 Voting System

Every single election year provides lawmakers with a new opportunity to tweak California’s voting system. Here are the changes that will impact voters on November 3rd.

Changes To How Candidates Names Appear On The Ballot

Before 2020, California voting laws listed some situations where the names of the candidates had to be translated into another language. The idea was that this helped non-English speaking registered voters identify the candidate. That law has been tweaked.

Jurisdictions that previously printed the names in a different language now can provide a phonetic translation of the candidate’s name. There are a few exceptions to this law, that includes:

  • Proof that the candidate has been known by a specific name in that community for a minimum of two years.
  • The candidate ca...

California’s Regulations Regarding Car Seats

California’s Regulations Regarding Car Seats

All parents know that infants should be contained in a car seat; however, not all parents know what California’s laws are regarding car seats.

Infants And Car Seats

Any child that is two or under must be confined to a rear-facing car seat while they are in a vehicle. Failing to have your child properly secured in a car seat will result in a $500 fine and a point getting added to your driving record. Don’t assume that just because your child has passed their second birthday that it’s time to change their car seat. The law also states that the child needs to be at least 40 inches tall and or weigh at least 40 pounds before they graduate to a different type of car seat.

Car Seats For Children Between Ages 2 And 8

If your child has already celebrated their second birthday and also meets...

Did You Hear About This Change To Kids Car Seats?

Did You Hear About This Change To Kids Car Seats?

Any experienced parent will tell you that kids need different kinds of car seats at different ages. As the child grows, they need different styles of car seats until they are finally big enough to sit in the seat without any additional device. For a long time, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that children should remain in rear-facing car seats until they are 2 years old. However, that has now changed.

Recently, the American Academy of Pediatrics changed their recommendation and eliminated the age limit. Now they say that a child should remain in a rear-facing car seat until they weigh over 40 pounds. The lead author of the updated rule said:

“It’s best to keep your child rear-facing as long as possible. This is still the safest way for children to ride.”

This change ...

Is Raising Speed Limits A Good Idea?

Is Raising Speed Limits A Good Idea?

Speed limits are something that drivers deal with every single time they get behind the wheel of their vehicle. Some drivers follow the posted speed limits, while others prefer to view them as suggestions. It is not uncommon in California for a driver to be going the speed limit on freeways and get dirty looks, amongst other things, from other drivers for doing so.

These speeding drivers would probably prefer to have the speed limits on the roads raised so they could drive faster without having to worry about getting a ticket. However, doing so may not provide the answer they are looking for. The state of Michigan recently increased the speed limits on rural sections of freeway. So far, this has led to an increase in problems.

Raising The Speed Limit Can Lead To More Accidents
