Sharing the Road With Trucks

Sharing the Road With Trucks

The length and width of large trucks can create special driving situations for both small and large vehicle drivers. Often it is a lack of understanding by small vehicle drivers of large trucks that can lead to collisions. To share the road with a truck means being aware of its capabilities and limitations. The following suggestions can help drivers share the road comfortably and safely.

At intersections, drivers of long trucks that are turning right may move into the left lane to avoid hitting the curb as they turn. If you ignore the truck’s turn signals and pull up on its right side, you may be squeezed between the truck and the curb as it makes the turn.

Most trucks need a longer distance to stop. Signal your intentions well before turning, slowing or stopping to give trucks behind you more time to brake.

When stopped, especially going uphill, a truck may roll back farther than a car when the driver releases the brake and engages the clutch. Leave at least one car length between your vehicle and the truck ahead and stay slightly to the left of your lane so you can be seen in the truck driver’s mirror.

Be visible. Stay out of a truck’s blind spots, typically to the sides and back. Truck drivers rely on their mirrors to see what’s happening in these areas. Never follow so closely that a truck driver cannot see your vehicle in the mirrors. If you can’t see the driver in the mirrors, then the truck driver cannot see you.

When passing trucks, do not stay alongside for too long a time. Pass as quickly and safely as possible and don’t cut in front of a truck too closely.

On multi-lane freeways, trucks longer than 6.5 metres cannot use the far-left lane. Instead they must use the lane immediately to the right (middle lane) to pass slower vehicles. Never drive or walk around the back of a truck when it is reversing. You may be in the driver’s blind spot and you may be unknowingly hit by the truck.

When meeting or passing a truck on a highway, stay as far away from it — in your lane — as you can to avoid the wind pressure created at high speeds. Road Safety. It starts with you

Emotional Regulation in Children

0
Kids

Emotional regulation in basic terms is the ability to react in an appropriate manner to a situation. Some kids can find this challenging for varying reasons. Young children are typically the ones who have difficulty expressing their emotions or being able to regulate their emotions appropriately. They may show signs of depression, cry excessively, have difficulty coping, be anxious, aggressive, withdraw, become angry easily, and/or may demonstrate oppositional behaviors. It is important when children are young to use the correct words to express the emotion that they are feeling. For instance, anger, scared, happy and sad.

It is important to remember that children learn by watching their parents. When parents yell, children yell. When parents get angry, children become angry. If you as a parent feel yourself getting heightened, you need to give yourself a parent “time out” so that you can come back to the situation with some clarity and calm. Anytime you show your children how to behave when you are angry, they are learning how to regulate their emotions. It is also important as parents to understand and empathize with our children that they too are going to have bad days and not to lose our cool when our child is having a meltdown. Allow them to feel what they are feeling and model the behaviour we would like them to use in the future.

We need to allow our children to feel the way they feel as long as they are doing so in a safe manner. For instance, they can show that they are angry as long as they are not being aggressive or harming themselves or anyone else. We need to guide our children’s behaviour without the urge to punish them. While it may be difficult as parents to stay calm, cool and collected when your child is having a meltdown it is important to let your child feel safe enough to show their emotions because lets’ face it, parents have bad days too.

Love Sales and Advertising? We Would Love to Hear From You!

0

Our publication, Sell It! Here has grown very rapidly in the last five years. When we first took over the publication, in it’s 30th year, it was only available in Penetanguishene, Midland, Elmvale and Coldwater. With the demise of Auto Traders print division we grabbed the opportunity to pick up their distribution, and suddenly found ourselves in all of Simcoe County, Muskoka and Parry Sound.  Our publication is purchased in convenience stores, gas bars, grocery and drug stores. We have an audited sell through rate from Mac’s Convenience store of 72%. Our advertisers have been very loyal, and we have 90% retention, but we would like to bring in more advertisers from our larger distribution area. It’s a wide open territory that would be perfect for someone comfortable in the print advertising arena.

Walk the Path (A Solstice Experience)

0
maryholme-labyrinth

This day marks the second of my spiritual awakening. Tapping into my own power, I have begun to understand what it means to awaken ones own light and to follow it as you walk the path. The 24 hours over the solstice and strawberry moon marked a period of spiritual healing and rebirth. A new chapter is beginning for me…

Today I asked my girlfriend Kelley to take me to a Labyrinth. I had heard about this place and I woke with the message to go (as if called there). June 21st also marks National Aboriginal day and on the way, she told me of the memorial for the missing Aboriginal women in the area. It was a rock memorial that stood strong in the middle of a circle of beautiful wooded area. As we approached this spot, I entered the circle and gave a moment of silence to these beautiful souls who are no longer with us; I pray for the “Sisters In Spirit”.

We both noticed the peaceful area by the Labyrinth and made our way towards it. I was grateful we were the only ones that afternoon so we weren’t harried. We set down our things and she asked if I wanted to go in first; I nodded in response and stepped forward onto my experience. I walked to the entrance, marked by a rustic wind chime dangling from a tree and I placed my right hand in appreciation for the upcoming experience. I noticed the sun shining through the clouds behind me so I looked up and realized it was lighting my path into the Labyrinth. I stepped in…

The path was formed by rock formations and I focused on the crunching of pinecones beneath my feet. I realized how my path is mine to face alone; it marks the incredible experience where we are all walking our own path, making our own discoveries and encountering life’s gifts on the time the universe has given us. It laid before me as I walked slowly taking in this message and embracing it entirely. Kelley entered a few minutes later, respecting my time and space, as she walked her own lighted path. Even though physically we were experiencing the same path, spiritually we were different. At one point I glimpsed her and from my perspective it seemed she was leading us. As we continued the perception changed and I was in the lead. We then came to face one another, and lastly, there was a time where we were at opposite ends of the path. The message was right there for us to discover…..

We walk our own path and we allow the suns energy to help us illuminate what lies before us.

I had to shed some tears as I was letting some things go within myself. It’s exciting to know that a new journey is about to begin, however it’s hard for me to say goodbye to once brought so much joy in my life. My heart was breaking in doing so, in the moment I could even feel the pain across my chest; I acknowledged it and continued on. I appreciated the lesson learned, and put trust in the universe that everything happens for a reason: I’m to understand this experience on my own and realize that people come in and out of your lives (which maybe permanent or maybe they are at opposite ends of the Labyrinth for the time being).

As I approached the centre, I could feel the energy circling me like a whirlpool; I sat on a stump and stared. My physical and spiritual body were at the centre of my path, the centre of my being, as my life circled around me. I realized that at my core I stand strong like the trees around me.

I stood and stepped outward onto the path where I found 4 feathers and appreciated that the Angels and loved ones are always with you. I could feel myself moving a bit faster on my way out as it didn’t take me as long to find my way out as on my way in. At the entrance I stopped and gave a feather to the Labyrinth to express my deepest gratitude for this experience. As we walked outward toward the car, I stopped and paid my respects to the Aboriginal Women again and gifted them 2 feathers, placing them on the rock moment. I kept the smallest one for myself to celebrate this wonderful experience.

Walk the path! Let the sun give you the light to illuminate your path, and give you energy to walk along. Whether you feel alone, you have people around you who are along their path, and you have Angels who will walk with you along your path. Let the light guide you …

Much Love – Jen
