Turning Off the Power Due to High Winds

Turning Off the Power Due to High Winds

Turning Off the Power Due to High Winds

Fall has finally arrived, and for Californian, that means it is time to brace yourselves against the strong winds that come with the season. These strong winds can topple trees and powerlines, which when combined with dry brush, can spark out of control wildfires. This means that not only do residents have to brace themselves against the breeze, they have to be on the lookout for wildfires.

This is exactly what happened last year in Yuba County with the Cascade Fire that burned roughly 10,000 acres and killed 4 people. After the fire, it was determined that sagging powerlines from Pacific Gas & Electric’s (PG&E) sparked the blaze. With the company now facing billions of dollars in damages owed, it is taken preemptive measures to make sure what happened in 2017, doesn’t happen again.

Don’t Pay for a Thief’s Holiday Fun

There is no denying that credit cards are very powerful tools. They allow people to pay for things online, or in person, without actually handing over cash. This helps make wallets lighter and slimmer. Unfortunately, they can be very easy to steal. Some criminals don’t even need to steal the card itself, just get the information from the card.

A tactic used by some thieves is to tamper with machines that accept credit and debit cards. They install card readers and cameras onto the machines in order to get the information they need to use the card themselves.

What is a California Rolling Stop

Drivers Have to Stop

Drivers Have to Stop

California is notorious for having drivers who like to play by their own rules. Drivers in the state seem to follow the mentality that if everyone does it, it must be okay. However, this is not the case. After all, if other drivers drove off of a bridge, you wouldn’t follow them. Besides, a driver can still get into trouble for breaking a law, even if other drivers broke it too.

A perfect example of this is when drivers approach stop signs. A driver is supposed to come to a full stop at the limit line, the white line in the road, when they approach a stop sign. This is required by law. However, many drivers prefer to do a rolling stop, also known as a California stop.

A rolling stop occurs when a vehicle does not stop...
