Some Basic Rules of the Road.

It’s Mostly Just Common Sense, But Here Are a Few Tips To Travel Safe.

There are statistics that no doubt show it, but it would not be hard to guess that a good deal of road accidents happen because drivers get in a hurry and speed, or become distracted, inattentive, or tired only to drift out of control. You might not think of these as a primary “safety” rules, but doing your homework, planning your itinerary ahead of time, allowing plenty of time to get there, and getting a good nights rest before you start would save many, many more lives than people would often give it credit for. Here are some other ideas:

There are many more things we could cite in this space, but those are the most often overlooked. We sincerely want everyone who visits the coast to have a great time and avoid any unpleasant (or needless to say tragic) experiences along the way. It’s all about having FUN, and I can think of nothing that is any more UNFUN than a traffic accident or mishap.

Beach Safety Tips.

More Common Sense, But a Few Extra Things to Be Aware of At the Coast.

There is a certain risk you take anytime you step out your front door, let alone hang around close by to one of nature’s primal forces – the ocean. It pays to observe that, Mother Nature is not always entirely predictable and accidents can happen to the unwary and wary alike. However, the beach is not an outrageously dangerous place if you exercise some common sense, and assume responsibility for finding out about local, specific safety hazards when you go. Be especially, vigilant where children are concerned, for they are dependent on you to help them stay safe.

From “sneaker waves,” rip currents, and sun over-exposure, to falling rocks, jellyfish stings and shark attacks, the beach can be a pretty scary place. But it doesn’t have to be. “Swimming and water activities are very healthy so long as you use appropriate caution for yourself and your family when you visit the beach,” says B. Chris Brewster, president of the United States Lifesaving Association. The first step is knowing where danger lurks and how to avoid it. The rest is knowing your own physical limitations and being aware of them. Tragic water accidents happen quickly. The most common reason for aquatic mishaps is a lack of safety knowledge. We recommend the following safety tips:

Play Safe Tips.

Whether you are flying a aerobatic kite, or throwing a football, Frisbee, or doing anything else that could even remotely pose a hazard to others should they wander into the vicinity unaware, take the initiative to be concerned about their safety. Let them know of any hazard. Be willing to share the space or confine your activity if necessary. Be especially aware of the presence of children who cannot deduce a hazard to themselves, and may even be fascinated and drawn toward it, or animals who may sense danger (spook and run away, or attack) when there is none. Be aware of others and play safe. Try to avoid high winds and extreme conditions as well.
