Ugh, that is usually the first thought when it comes to winter driving on Ontario roads. Who could blame you? Accidents happen often enough throughout the year, no one wants the increased stress of winter conditions and unpredictable weather to add to their daily travel.
A common mistake among homeowners is to assume that everyone in your household knows how to use a fire extinguisher, it seems simple right? The truth is that many children, and often many adults, do not know the proper use of a fire extinguisher and may not resort to even using it in an emergency.
If you have purchased snow tires, we are glad you did. Amazingly, few drivers make the change during the winter season and continue to rely on their all-season tires for reliability in poor winter weather conditions.
There are an abundance of e-bikes on the streets these days. And sometimes, on the sidewalks too! Some drivers with helmets, others without. E-Bikes that go zipping past at a good speed and others that seem to be moving slower than pedestrians walking alongside. We realize the need to find alternative transportation, considering the cost of owning a vehicle and the lack of public transit in some areas. But have e-bikes become a convenience or a nuisance on our roads?
We know everyone hears it often, but the importance of a proper home escape plan needs to be communicated and repeated by as many sources as possible. After all, the goal is to keep your family safe!
All of us tend to store our stuff in our basement, we put it down there and forget about it. It is only when our sump pump fails or our sewer backs up that we phone our insurance company and come to realize what we had actually accumulated down there.You would be surprised at what you have accumulated over the years!
Although we all enjoy saving some money, we can pretty much agree that when it comes to having an insurance claim, the most important thing for everyone is having the right insurance in place. At least it should be.
