Keep your family safe this July 4th!

By Ken Gibson on May 21, 2023

We Virginians are patriotic, and we love to celebrate Independence Day. It’s a great time to get together with friends and family and enjoy outdoor activities, like picnics, swimming, parades, and fireworks.

Celebrating Independence Day is fun, but it’s also one of the most dangerous holidays of the year. The combination of drinking, driving, water sports, and fireworks leads to hundreds of fatalities and thousands of emergency room visits annually.

Yes, tractors and farming vehicles have the right away in Virginia. How can you stay safe on the road with them?

By Ken Gibson on March 10, 2023

More people means more traffic, and more traffic increases the chances of cars coming into contact with  farming equipment on Virginia roads, especially in rural areas.

By Ken Gibson on February 28, 2023

Security cameras are becoming more prevalent in our world today. Many businesses have cameras that record what’s happening in and around their premises 24/7, while video surveillance systems do the same at many homes.

Some may find it alarming that our daily activities are constantly being recorded, but security cameras can offer some benefits. Bad actors are less likely to commit a crime when they know they’re being watched.
