Question: Is it a law that I have to wear a helmet when riding my motorcycle?
Answer: It depends. You must wear a helmet if you are operating a motorcycle or riding as a passenger under the age of 21, or if you have an instructional permit, or if you’ve had a motorcycle license for less than a year. In addition, individuals who are operating motorcycles on an instructional permit are not authorized to carry passengers.

Everyone loves a good scare on Halloween, but not when it comes to child safety. There are several easy and effective behaviors that parents can share with kids to help reduce their risk of injury.
• Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
• Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
• Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
• Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
• Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
• Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

Tonight’s the big night! Being scared on Halloween can be tons of fun; but between all the sweet treats, parties, chaos, and decorations, Halloween can be scary for our pets in a very different, not-so-fun way. For anyone who puts an emergency vet visit solidly into the “scary but not fun” category, we’ve got some basic safety tips to keep your Halloween festivities pet friendly.
Keep the candy bowl out of your pets’ reach, because there’s a lot more stuff in there that’s toxic for them than you might realize. We all know chocolate is bad for pets, but sugar free candy, macadamia nuts and walnuts, and even raisins (if you’re the house who gives out raisins on Halloween) are all very dangerous for pets. If you want to be prepared for four-legged trick-or-treaters, or you don’t want your own pets to feel left out, keep some apple slices, carrot sticks, dog or cat treats, or unsalted pretzels on hand – those are all pet-safe.
Whether you’re hosting a party or just handing out candy, keep...
