Many people love to go boating on the lake. Driving through the waves and anchoring somewhere calm to hang out with friends is the best way to celebrate the weekend. If you’re old enough, drinking on the boat can be fun, but you should know the dangers before partaking.

If you drink too much, boating becomes extremely dangerous. It might seem obvious, but boat drivers should always stay sober.

Although it sounds like fun at first, drinking alcohol while boating has many dangers.

When we go to work, we expect to be in an environment where people respect each other. With this foundation, communication, work quality, and productivity can thrive. However, there are some workplaces that don’t treat all employees the same. While discrimination is illegal, it can still happen. When it does, legal recourse may be an option.

It can be scary to think about coming forward with a discrimination allegation. People may choose not to do it because they’re afraid of backlash, such as losing their job. However, those who have filed complaints because of discrimination are legally protected from facing discrimination when they’ve filed a charge, made a complaint, or took part in an investigation or lawsuit.

Published on Aug 15, 2019 at 6:01 pm in Tractor Trailer.

McMath Woods P.A. monitors the changes in laws, regulations, and rules regarding the trucking industry. It’s important for all drivers to understand the impact that these changes could have on the safety of the public. Recently, changes were made to the rules governing 18-wheelers and commercial drivers.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the Trump Administration is seeking to loosen the regulations governing the time that 18-wheeler drivers can spend on the road. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issued the proposed changes to the “hours of services” rules. Those are the rules that dictate required breaks on and off duty. The changes will allow drivers more flexibility on when they take breaks and allow for a pause in their 14-hour workday.
