Spring Break and Easter Travel

cautionWe are approaching the official date for Spring and the launch of Spring Break, Easter vacation, college graduation and summer vacations.  It will be common to see more and more  cars pulled over by the Highway Patrol, Sheriff, or Policeman during your  travel.

You will probably see a lot more traffic on the road than normal with people who are in a hurry, tired, or cranky who just want to “get”there.  People do stupid things, aren’t always considerate, and just don’t pay attention when driving and stressed.  This can lead to road rage, speeding, texting and talking to lessen boredom, and taking unnecessary  short cuts.

If you are planning a trip, have a long work commute, or just find yourself on the road a lot, remember to take  Basic Plus daily  for an overall sense of well-being, Kela Cell Lite for sustaining your energy instead of resorting to a caffeine stimulant fix,  and Kela M to keep your muscles loose and relaxed so they don’t tense and spasm.

AND….

NEW TRAFFIC LAW – 2010 If a patrol car is stopped on the side of the road, you have to change to the next lane (away from the stopped vehicle) OR slow down to at least 20 mph under the posted speed limit. Every state and Maryland and the D.C. has this law.  In Hawaii , the Move-over law became effective on July 10, 2012. In California , the Move-over law became operative on January 1, 2010. A friend’s son got a ticket for this recently. A police car (turned out it was two police cars) was on the side of the road giving a ticket to someone else. He slowed down to pass but did not move into the other lane. The second police car immediately pulled him over and gave him a ticket. He had never heard of the law. It is a new law that states if any emergency vehicle is on the side of the road, if you are able, you are to move into the far lane. The cost of the ticket was $754, with three points on his license and a mandatory court appearance. Please let every-one you know who drives about this new law.

Happy Trails to You
