"How Can I Stay Calm After An Accident?"

The aftermath of a motor vehicle accident is stressful no matter how you slice it. Once your heart leaves your throat and moves back into your chest, you quickly check your surroundings, take stock of your physical condition and start looking around for damage. 

You plan on getting checked out by a doctor just to be safe, but you are relieved that there are no obvious signs of injury. Sure, your car has seen better days, but it could have been so much worse. You're starting to feel calm...until you see an irate driver getting out of the other car and heading in your direction. 

Kids are more likely than adults to be bitten by a dog

Almost 5 million dog bites occur each year in the United States, and many of these bites occur to children. Children are more likely than adults to be bitten by dogs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which adds that the injuries children get from dog bites also tend to be more severe than the injuries adults receive.

Often children receive bites on the face, neck, hands or feet. These types of injuries can cause bleeding, infections, broken bones and scarring. They can also be traumatic for the child. Because dog bites can cause severe injuries to children, it can be helpful for parents to teach their children how to behave safely around dogs to prevent bites from occurring.

We all have that one person in our lives; they have the best intentions, but they are a living nightmare to drive with. Whether it's criticizing your driving skills or gasping every ten seconds, backseat drivers are a significant distraction on the road.

Unfortunately, backseat drivers are as dangerous as they are distracting. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving killed over 3,000 people in 2016 and injured thousands in the years since. Many drivers report that one of the largest distractions in the car is other passengers or backseat drivers, but how do you deal with backseat driving without causing any accidents?
