Here Is All About Lemon Law And Lemon Law Cars

The Lemon Law protects consumers against flaws or problems that significantly impair the usage, value, or safety of a new or demonstration car (these are called "nonconformities"). These flaws must first be disclosed to the manufacturer or its authorized service agent (typically the dealer) within the "Lemon Law Rights Period," which is the first 24 months after the motor vehicle is delivered to the consumer.

If the manufacturer fails to conform the car to the warranty after a "reasonable number of tries" to remedy these flaws, the law compels the manufacturer to buy back the defective vehicle and either refund the purchase price or provide the buyer with a new vehicle. The statute excludes faults caused by accident, negligence, misuse, modification, or alteration by anyone other than the manufacturer or its authorized service agent. Reporting an issue as soon as possible saves time and protects you.

All repairs and maintenance should be documented by the consumer. For each warranty check or repair, a formal repair certificate should be acquired from the service agent (dealer). The consumer should keep track of when the car was brought in for repairs and when he or she was told that the service was done. The mileage on the odometer when the car was taken to the shop and when it was picked up after repair should also be recorded. Consumers should maintain any receipts or invoices for payments linked to the vehicle's purchase/lease and any repairs.

Can I return my car to the dealer within 30 days of purchase?

You may be allowed to return your car to the dealer or manufacturer in two situations.
So the answer to the question: Can I return my car to the dealer within 30 days?

The first situation, known as a "buyback," comes when you and the dealer from whom you are Buying a lemon law car, new or used car, mutually agree to repurchase the vehicle within the first 60 days of delivery.

The second situation occurred when your new passenger vehicle, light truck, or motorcycle experienced repeated or major mechanical issues.

The term "lemon law" refers to three instances in which the manufacturer is required to replace or buy the vehicle:

During the vehicle's warranty period (24 months or 18,000 miles), the identical fault has been fixed four or more times.

A brake or steering system malfunction has been rectified at least once during the warranty term (24 months or 18,000 miles), yet the vehicle still fails safety inspection regulations.

Due to an issue, the car could not be utilized for 30 days or longer throughout its warranty period (24 months or 18,000 miles).


One of the government's obligations is to protect customers from fraud and faulty products. States have implemented "lemon laws" to protect customers from Buying a lemon law car. These regulations allow automobile buyers the right to a refund or a replacement car if the new car they purchased has major flaws or technical issues. Visit us for additional information and assistance with lemon law.

What is a Brain Concussion?
A concussion is a sudden, post-traumatic loss of consciousness. Usually, victims do not remember sustaining their injury. Classified as a mild brain injury, the effects of a concussion are short lived for most people, but in some cases may persist for several weeks. They can occur as a result of direct head injuries or the rapid acceleration and slowing down of head movements often experienced during accidents involving cars or trucks. Shock also occurs in people involved in sports, especially boxers, skiers and football. Concussions most often happen to children below 18 years old and people over 50. During a concussion, there is no damage to the nervous system and symptoms rarely leave a trace. A characteristic feature of this condition is temporary memory impairment, both in the period before the accident and after the injury. After a few days or even hours, victims often feel well enough to resume normal activities. The most common symptoms of a concussion include: * headaches and dizziness  * temporary loss of consciousness * problems with concentration * hypersensitivity to noise and light * nausea and vomiting * speech impairment * problems with maintaining balance * tiredness and slowing down of movements Although the symptoms of concussion are usually self-limiting, headaches and dizziness may persist for several months after the injury. A possible, but rare complication is subarachnoid hemorrhage, often characterized by a severe headache and paralysis. Longer-term affects include: * changes in sense of smell and taste * trouble sleeping * personality disorder * depression * learning difficulties Diagnosing a concussion is supported by a medical history of the injury, symptoms and neurological examination. The examination of choice is usually a computed tomography of the head, and in rare cases, magnetic resonance imaging to check for brain damage. It is necessary to check whether the injury has resulted in a brain hematoma, a complication characteristic of concussions. During diagnosis, doctors must also determine the patient's neurological function. This includes any neck injury or nose and ear hemorrhage. This type of bleeding, accompanied by bruising around the eyes, may indicate a fracture of the skull base. Each head injury with loss of consciousness is an indication for hospitalization. Treatment includes rest, avoiding exposure to the sun, and limiting the influence of external stimuli provided by a TV or computer. In case of a severe headache, the doctor may prescribe painkillers, usually paracetamol. It is very important to stay away from preparations that increase the risk of bleeding and impair blood clotting. In more than half of concussion cases, people recover to their original level of fitness. However, attention should still be paid to recurrent symptoms as they may suggest more serious complications and disorders than the concussion itself.
How is international arbitration implemented in the UAE during the new normal?
The number of arbitration cases being registered in the United Arab Emirates has been steadily increasing in recent years. This is especially so for Dubai in terms of commercial litigation, with arbitration being included as a standard clause for dispute resolution, whether relating to real estate matters, construction or commercial contracts. The year 2021 has seen critical changes in the arbitration sector with a new decree anointing the ‘Dubai International Arbitration Centre’ (DIAC) as a sole arbitral chamber in the emirate, which now essentially abolishes the Dubai International Financial Centre-London Court of International Arbitration (DIFC-LCIA). The said decree is in effect from September 2021 and establishes the Dubai International Arbitration Centre to act as the sole dispute-resolution seat in the emirate of Dubai. In this article, we will particularly discuss international arbitration in the UAE and the provisions of the UAE Arbitration Law (Federal Law No. 6/2018 on ‘Arbitration’). It is important to note that the UAE Arbitration Law also applies to international, commercial arbitrations conducted outside the UAE if the parties to the dispute agree to the same. International arbitration has had its crucial impact felt during the Covid pandemic, where the international arbitration process demonstrated its resilience and flexibility in resolving disputes by delivering through technological means, including holding sessions remotely. International arbitration rules concerning the use of technology: Article 28(4) of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (‘UNCITRAL’) Arbitration Rules of 2010 (revised rules) allows for arbitral tribunals the power to have expert witnesses to be examined through means of videoconferencing. Article 28 In the event of an oral hearing, the arbitral Tribunal shall give the parties adequate advance notice of the date, time and place thereof. Witnesses, including expert witnesses, may be heard under the conditions and examined in the manner set by the arbitral Tribunal. Hearings shall be held in camera unless the parties agree otherwise. The arbitral Tribunal may require the retirement of any witness or witnesses, including expert witnesses, during the testimony of such other witnesses, except that a witness, including an expert witness, who is a party to the arbitration shall not, in principle, be asked to retire. The arbitral Tribunal may direct that witnesses, including expert witnesses, be examined through means of telecommunication that do not require their physical presence at the hearing (such as videoconference) UAE arbitration process on the use of technology: The UAE arbitration law is largely based on the international UNCITRAL model arbitration law. The DIAC Rules of 2007 and its amendments govern the arbitration proceedings of the Dubai International Arbitration Centre. Article 20 of the DIAC rules determines the place of arbitration and states that, Article 20.1:The parties may agree in writing on the seat of the arbitration. In the absence of such a choice, the seat of arbitration shall be Dubai, unless the Executive Committee determines in view of all the circumstances, and after having given the parties an opportunity to make a written comment, that another seat is more appropriate. Article 20.2: The Tribunal may, after consultation with the parties, conduct hearings or meetings at any place that it considers appropriate. The Tribunal may deliberate wherever it considers appropriate. Article 20.3: The award shall be deemed to have been made at the seat of the arbitration. Further, article 34.7 of the DIAC Arbitration rules 2017, states that, ‘The Tribunal shall only require witnesses who have submitted a written statement and who have been requested to provide oral testimony during the hearing, to swear an oath prior to giving oral evidence, subject to any mandatory provisions of the applicable procedural law. The Tribunal shall have the authority to accept oaths and conduct examinations in person or by electronic means including telephone or video conference or a combination thereof, provided it has first satisfied itself of the identity of the witness’. Both the said articles thus essentially allow wide discretion to the tribunal to determine that a virtual setting would be the most appropriate venue. Further, there are express provisions and procedures incorporated in the rules that allow for conducting of witness hearings through electronic means of communication such as video conferencing (as included above). In the Covid era, these flexible rules have proven their worth, and international arbitration in the UAE has demonstrated its resilience and effectiveness. This practice continues into the post covid era as well.
CEO Employment Agreement: Everything You Need to Know!
Business contracts help businesses to operate smoothly, ensuring their absolute success. If you are an Indian business owner, you must know that the Indian Contract Act of 1872 governs the Employment Agreement entered between the Employer and Employee. Whether it is a contract with a regular employee or a CEO Employment Agreement, it secures the rights and uplifts the obligations of the parties. However, remember a legally binding agreement must include an offer, its acceptance, lawful object and consideration. Also, the parties should be competent to sign the contract with free consent. Another vital factor that is necessary to ensure business growth is confidentiality. That is why many companies put a confidentiality clause on their employment agreement, imposing a duty on the employees to maintain secrecy regarding trade secrets, intellectual property etc. While others prefer entering into an Employee Non-Disclosure Agreement. Whatever the case, an infringement of the confidentiality clause or non-disclosure agreement can even lead to the termination of the employment agreement. CEO & the Employment Agreement: A Brief Overview! Every corporate organisation has an officer of the highest rank who takes the major business decisions, manages the company operations and acts as a bridge between the company officials and the Board of Directors, known as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Though enjoying the topmost rank, the CEO is also an employee, which is why they also have to sign an agreement with the company. Nevertheless, the primary reason behind a CEO Employment Agreement is to bring stability to the organisation's relationship with the CEO. Here are some of the essential elements that an Employment Contract with the CEO must include: - Employment Scope & Duties: This clause expressly says about the tenure of the CEO's employment; it also defines their responsibilities as the company's top-ranking executive. - Compensation: The agreement contains in detail all the types of compensation a CEO is entitled to, like basic pay, variable and stock pay. This clause also includes alteration of compensations as the Board of Directors may sanction. - Employee Benefits: Being the highest-ranked official, the CEO is offered various employee benefits by the company during his tenure that is subject to alteration or cancellation. - Expenses: The employment contract must state clearly the expenses that the CEO is entitled to reimbursement. - Severance: This clause will be applicable on termination of the employment agreement. It states the compensation package that the CEO will get. - Confidentiality: Every company has Confidential Information Rules, which all employees and the CEO need to maintain. The business concern might also go for signing a separate Employee Non Disclosure Agreement. Both are the same, except that confidentiality is only a clause in an employment agreement, whereas a Non-disclosure agreement is a contract as a whole. - Assignment: This clause determines who will receive the employee benefit in the case of the CEO's death. Conclusion An Employment Agreement is a legal document of utmost importance. It requires efficient drafting to safeguard both the party's rights and liabilities. Hence, contact the top corporate lawyers and avail of their premium services at a reasonable cost.
How will the new zero-tolerance drunk driving law affect your car insurance?
You might have come across the recent changes in the UAE federal laws that has relaxed the previous rules which imposed strict license requirements for the purchase of alcohol in the region. Albeit such rules have now been removed, however, the UAE still follows and applies zero tolerance when it comes to alcohol consumption while driving. This essentially means that, there is not concept of minimum blood alcohol limit in the UAE, meaning that there is a zero-tolerance policy and thus, despite the level of blood alcohol a person may have while driving he can be liable for a fine and jail term. Drunk driving: It is crucial to understand that, the UAE has many strict and rigorous laws in place especially when it comes to public safety. Pursuant to the Federal Law number 21 of 1995 concerning ‘traffic’ and its amendments (“Traffic Law”), driving in UAE under the influence of alcohol or any other anesthetic or narcotic substances is punishable by the law. Pursuant to Article 49 (6) of the traffic law, ‘Driving or attempting to driving a vehicle on the road while under the effect of alcoholic drinks or anesthetic substances and the like, shall be sentenced to imprisonment and / or to a minimum fine of Twenty- Five Thousand Dirhams’. This fine amount can go higher as well depending on the veracity of the offence and the resultant damages caused. Such penalty will be adjudged by the Court and applies in instances of: * Driving under the influence of Alcohol * Driving under the influence of drugs or brain affecting substances or any other similar items * Causing someone’s death * Causing a serious accident or injuries Further, pursuant to article 59(3) of the traffic law immediate arrest will follow. The said article states, 'A policeman may arrest any vehicle driver if found involved in the commitment of one of the following crimes including ‘Driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any other narcotic or the like, thus depriving him of his power of control over it’. How it affects your insurance: Insurers have the right to refuse to pay accident claims if the driver's blood-alcohol level is positive. A mandatory part of raising any vehicle insurance claims requires to provide a police certificate describing how the accident occurred and the cause of the accident and the resultant damages. When the cause of the accident is due to the fault of the driver due to drunken driving then the same can be used to reject the insurance claim in itself. Black points are also directly imposed on the driver’s license for the most serious of traffic offences including drunken driving. The maximum number of black points that can be accumulated on your driving license is 24, and fines are imposed for each such violation. If the number of back points acquired on a license reach 24 in number, then the license can be confiscated for a period of six months, and the driver will be required to attend further corrective courses in driving. Acquiring a number of black points on your license can also potentially cost you more on your car insurance. With more back points acquired for traffic violations, you will need to pay a higher premium on a car insurance policy. The traffic regulations in the UAE are thus extremely strict in order to ensure protection of road users and to reduce traffic casualties. The traffic laws are regularly amended to bring in innovative changes as the UAE aims to achieve its aim of reducing traffic causalities from every 6 per 100,000 people to every 3 per 100,000 people by this year.

How to deal with a car accident in the UAE and its fines?
Car accidents can occur due to a variety of reasons and more often than not, negligence constitutes a key contributing factor. Fines are typically imposed for traffic violations in accordance with the Federal Law No. 21 of 1995 Concerning Traffic and its amendments (‘Traffic Law’). The list of fines for traffic violations is often updated annually and regularly published by all emirates. 3 Important Steps to Follow When Involved in a Vehicular Accident: 1. Report the Accident In cases of serious injury or damage, contact the police on the emergency number 999, and request an ambulance service, if needed. At the same time, if it is a minor car accident, then the non-emergency police helpline can be contacted at 901. In Dubai, all minor accident cases can be reported in an easy application process by using the website of Dubai police, and you can place your accident report online and then obtain the police report as well. You might also be requested to share pictures of the accident through the application. 2. Obtain Police Report When an accident is reported to the police, they will take measures to identify the defaulting party by accessing the scene, photographs and other digital means. Upon completion of the checks, a police report will be issued, which constitutes the most important document ascertaining the accident and is also required in proceeding with insurance claims. 3. Insurance Claim It is crucial to immediately contact your vehicle insurance provider and to report the accident and the probable damages. Once the police report is obtained, it is required to be provided to the insurance company, to be eligible for the insurance claim. UAE enforces strict traffic laws to further its goal for safer roads. While minor traffic violations might invite-only fines, for the more serious traffic violations, stricter penalties, including jail terms, can be imposed, especially when the safety of others is put at risk. For instance, reckless driving could invite fines, black points and confiscation of the vehicle. The website of the Dubai Police states as follows. Driving a vehicle in a way that jeopardizes the driver or others’ lives or their safety or security or driving a vehicle in a way that may cause damage to the public and private facilities: AED 2,000 in fines; 23 black points and the vehicle confiscation period of 60 days for light vehicles. However, for more serious traffic violations, the penalties are adjudged by the Court and may include imprisonment and fines. This is in respect of more serious offences such as: * Driving under the influence of Alcohol * Driving under the influence of drugs or brain affecting substances or any other similar items * Causing someone’s death * Causing a serious accident or injuries
What Causes New York’s High Number of Car Accidents?
Given a substantial population with lots of traffic city-wide, New York is no stranger to motor vehicle accidents. In response, traffic safety laws are taken seriously and constantly amended to align with modern technology and demographics. From the introduction of rideshare travel to the Covid-19 pandemic, New York has seen an upward trend in vehicle safety.  The 20-year stretch from 1990-2010 had seen a considerable decline in accident-related deaths. In 1990, 46,800 accident victims lost their lives within a year of their accident. By 2010, that number had fallen almost 30%, to 32,885. But usually, the tragedy inflicted by a traffic collision does not take a year. More than 95% of victims who are fatally injured will die within 30 days of an accident.  Over the last 10 years, there wasn’t a steady trend, but the following data was collected: * More than 55% of all fatal crashes involved "road excursions," in which a vehicle crosses median markers, lane lines, or leaves the roadway entirely. One in four fatal crashes occurred at an intersection. Queens had the most accidents relating to road excursions. They currently have the second highest amount of bike lanes, after Manhattan.  According to the US Department of Transportation, nearly half of all traffic accidents in the country occur at intersections. * About 31% of all fatal car accidents involve driver intoxication. Brookhaven in Long Island holds the lead for the county with the highest number of DUI’s per year.  * Staten Island reported to have the least number of car accidents, overall and per capita. Nevertheless compensation from legal suits exist all boroughs, including the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens.  * Driver inattention contributed to more crashes than any other human factor. Nearly one in four accidents involved distraction. The second main factor was tailgating; the third was the failure to yield the right of way. * In non-fatal accidents, drivers were more likely to be injured than anyone else. Anyone who lives, works, or visits New York regularly is well aware of traffic congestion in the city. Traffic accidents in the city are part of everyday life.
The Ins and Outs of Workplace Helmets
Protective helmets are used in many workplaces. It is difficult to imagine working in a mine, on a construction site, in a warehouse or at heights without the protection of a helmet. Contrary to first glance, helmet differentiations can be extremely extensive. It is important to know what material to use, the types of harnesses in helmets and how to check the expiration date of a helmet (yes, helmets have an expiration date). When choosing a protective helmet, workers must first consider their work conditions and what properties may be necessary. Are they working at high temperatures? If so, they must remember about ventilation. Antistatic helmets, or those with high resistance to splashes of molten metal might be necessary in workplaces like foundries. Materials The most common materials from which the helmet's shell is made are HDPE and ABS. 1. HDPE material helmets are heavy and thick. They manifest very good shock absorption during impact. These types of helmets are often used in agriculture, construction, electric utility, sand blasting, welding, chemical, mining, nuclear and oil refining industries. Construction accident legal cases in particular, dive heavily into the proper use of these helmets and their role in safeguarding further injuries.  2. ABS material provides high impact resistance. It is more expensive than HDPE. ABS helmets' walls are thinner, which makes them lightweight. It also has image values like making them look shinier. They are mostly used recreationally for activities such as bicycling, skiing and snowboarding, skateboarding, and as general safety-use helmets. 3. Anti-electrostatic property helmets are intended for employees working in explosion hazard zones - tanker drivers (ADR), miners.  The Body of the Helmet The inner part of the helmet that directly touches the head is the harness. It is responsible for the shock absorption when it hits the shell. The task of the truss is among others, keeping the helmet on the head. It is worth knowing that the distance between the shell and the top of the truss should be between one to two inches.  The main belt is an element of the truss that allows the helmet to be stabilized on the head, thanks to the possibility of adjusting the circumference. Most often, adjustment is possible with a belt, buckle or knob. Very often there is a sweatband in the front part of the strap, which minimizes the pressure of the helmet on the head and ensures maximum sweat absorption. The chin strap is usually already included in the helmet but can also be purchased separately. Its role is to prevent the protective helmet from falling off the head when the employee tilts his head down. The strap can be detached at any time. It can be attached to the truss with 2-, 3- or 4- points. The rule of thumb is that the more attachment points, the more firmly the helmet will fit on your head. Chin straps should not cause abrasions, limit and restrict movements, or move loosely during work. Expiration Each helmet shell is marked with its production date in the form of an arrow indicating the month and year. Most often, the validity of the helmet is between two to five years. However, remember to always read the attached instruction manual. It may happen that the expiry date of the helmet will be counted from the first use of the helmet. Nevertheless, any helmet is vulnerable to damage and should be inspected before usage. 
What Actions can be considered as Molestation of Women?
The United Nations declaration on the elimination of violence against women defines violence against women as "any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual, or mental harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life."Sexual violence, on the other hand, is specifically defined as "any sexual act, attempt to obtain a sexual act, or other act directed against a person's sexuality using coercion, by any person regardless of their relationship to the victim, in any setting. It includes rape, attempted rape, unwanted sexual touching and other non-contact forms". The estimates published by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that 1 in 3 women comprising 30% of the women worldwide have been subjected to either physical or sexual violence, either partner violence or non-partner violence in their lifetime. This is a staggering census, and much impetus is on the enforcement of strict laws against sexual violence. UAE Laws Governing Molestation: The UAE laws pertaining to sexual harassment are codified in Federal law number 3 of 1987, promulgating the penal code and its amendments (UAE Penal Code) which provide the provisions governing sexual harassment. The UAE penal code provides a broad definition for sexual harassment as, 'Sexual harassment shall mean excessive annoyance of others by repeating acts, words or signals that would molest them, for the purpose of pushing them to respond to their own sexual desires or the desires of others.' (Article 359 bis). The UAE Penal Code defines molestation as an indecent act either by words or actions in a public road or in a frequented place and imposes a penalty for molestation as one-year Imprisonment and /or a fine of ten thousand dirhams. Article 359 (1) states, 'Imprisonment for a period not exceeding one year and a fine not exceeding ten thousand Dirhams or one of said two penalties shall be imposed on whoever molests a female in an indecent way by words or acts on a public road or in a much-frequented place. The same penalty shall be imposed on any male, disguised in female apparel, who enters a place reserved for women or where entry is forbidden for other than women. Should he perpetrate a crime in this condition, this shall be considered an aggravating circumstance.' Sexual abuse can take many forms and manners; it can be touching of a victim in a sexual matter or forcing a victim the perpetrator in a sexual manner to or even forcing a victim to look at sexual body parts of the perpetrator or otherwise or forcing the victim to watch sexual activity. The keyword in all such circumstances is the concept of 'Consent'. Such consent should be mutual, voluntary, sober, honest and informed. Such consent should not be vitiated due to minority of age or any other factors, and further, it should not be in breach of any existing laws or rules.
Why Do Automobiles Reach Speeds They Can’t Legally Hit?
As of 2022, the fastest road-legal car, the SSC Tuatara, maxes out at 282.9 mph. The fastest posted speed limit in the country is on Texas State Highway 130 at 85 mph, over a 40-mile stretch. Which means the car can’t legally reach half of its maximum speed capability on America’s fastest road.  Speeding is a factor in over a quarter of all driving fatalities in the US. That amounts to 25 deaths per day in some years, piling up hundreds of lawsuits related to speeding accidents. Most modern cars are equipped with electronic stability control, blind spot detection, and driver assistance. Missing, however, is a speed limiter that electronically limits a car’s maximum speed. This is an option for some makers and models, but far from a legal requirement. Only Volvo, historically credited with the 3-point safety belt, has capped its cars’ speed at 112 mpg. Unfortunately, most speeding accidents aren’t recorded anywhere near that high anyways.  Mechanically, a stronger and faster engine has its arguments. For one, it can merge into highways safer and pass trucks smoother at a fast pace. Economically, a fast engine can save on fuel mileage, if it keeps a consistent pace. Still, 41 million speeding tickets issued for Americans every year suggests an appetite for simply going faster.  The US government has long been hesitant to interfere with the public’s access to fast cars, despite the countless campaigns against speeding. This stems from a mix of public discord on current speed limits and the vast influence the auto industry has on lawmakers, through lobbying and campaign contributions. After all, auto sales do make up a whopping 3.5% of the country’s GDP. In turn, there is no incentive for automakers to build safer speed-limiting vehicles.  In defiance of government inaction, safety advocates are focused on designing roads to deter people from pushing limits. With speeding more likely on wider roads, one idea is to reduce lane widths to 10 feet in cities. This narrows a driver’s tunnel of vision, causing them to slow down. There are also high-visibility crosswalks, street trees, and offset curb extensions called chicanes. The European Union recently ruled that all cars sold after May 2022 would have speed limiters. The technology, the Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA), isn’t mechanically enforced, but it will warn drivers when they creep over the limit. Nevertheless, safety is growing as a top concern for auto consumers, which will push speeding into a main topic of discussion.

Motorcycles make great alternatives for driving around the city. They are cheaper than cars, use less gas, are smaller and more agile, easier to park, and they generally help us get to places faster. Although the advantages are abundant, motorcycles also have plenty of cons. They have less security than cars and poor protection under bad weather. Below are a series of tips to keep in mind when riding a motorcycle around the city. Attire In both the hottest and coldest seasons, it is essential to wear a jacket. They should be especially designed for wind-heavy conditions, which includes protection on the shoulders, arms, and back. Pants should be made of sanity or even Kevlar, which can be worn on a day-to-day basis—without even getting on a bike. Gloves protect fingers and knuckles from bumps and abrasion. The pain in the event of a fall can be indescribable and the ground can feel like sandpaper without proper hand protection. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to wear light and reflective clothing (or brighter than black) so that others can see you, especially at night. Motor Mindset Motorcycles are relatively invisible to other road users. Drivers are often easily distracted and do not pay attention to the two wheelers around them. In response, bikers must use anticipatory driving. This is to control what’s ahead of them and give them sufficient time to react to the actions of other drivers. For example, do not always take a car’s turn signal for granted. Wait for the vehicle to turn before crossing or turning yourself. This also goes for bikers themselves when gesturing a turn or movement. Surprise tailgating and sudden high-speeds can cause car drivers to make fatal split-second decisions.  Braking A very practical trick is to circulate with two fingers placed continuously on the two brake levers. located on the handlebars of scooters. In the case of gear motorcycles, it’s possible to ride with your fingers on the front brake and with your right foot ready to activate the rear brake. This will reduce the braking distance. And before doing any kind of emergency braking, you have to balance the bike by first applying the rear brake - then the front, and the rest progressively. If done too hard from the beginning, the wheels will lock.  The Conditions The only contact surface bikers have with respect to the ground is a few centimeters off the tire. For this reason, the importance of grip is fundamental. It’s vital to avoid engagement on pedestrian crossings and slippery painted lines (which are especially dangerous after rainfall). Avoid making sudden changes of direction since the ground can be dirty and the wheels tend to skid. Potholes can also effectively destabilize a motorcycle. If a passenger is involved, motorcycles become heavier and less agile. Braking and acceleration will be slower and the bike will not respond momentarily. Minor passengers can be carried as long as the driver is the legal guardian. In states like New York, there is no minimum age for motorcycle passengers.  Follow the Law Comply with traffic regulations. Do not go faster than you should as excessive speed is one of the main causes of motorcycle accidents. Don’t ride with your feet dangling. It is a fatal mistake that we see every day that can cause amputations if the foot or leg gets stuck. When driving, it is necessary to have 100% of your senses, so do not talk on the phone or use any type of hearing device that impairs your ability to drive safely. In short, the most important tip is to get home alive and ride with common sense. It’s not easy to operate a two-wheeler in a concrete jungle, but it’s doable. So, drive calm, safe and with your head on your shoulders because you only have one life.
What are the Updates on Tenancy law for Family-only Residential Buildings in the UAE?
Pursuant to Law Number 2 of 2007 on Regulations of Landlord-Tenant Relationship in Sharjah and its amendments, low-income bachelors or labourers are not allowed to live in certain residential neighbourhoods which have been specially demarcated for family use. Instead, there are certain industrial areas allocated specially for low-income bachelors and labourers in Sharjah, wherein they can take accommodation and wherein it is also possible for them to obtain shared accommodation. For example, areas such as Al Majaz and Al Nahda have been designated for family accommodations. Certain exemptions may be granted to higher-income executive bachelors holding higher degrees and professionals such as doctors, engineers to live in residential areas demarcated for families with the direct permission of the landlord. Pursuant to the above the law, thereby, it is required that upon obtaining tenancy in family accommodations, a tenant is required to give the details of all of his family members who will be occupying the tenanted unit, along with copies of their income and marriage certificate as well. Sharing of accommodation: Subject to the specific consent of the landlords, accommodation sharing might be allowed in certain areas for low-income category personals and labourers. The overall number of persons living in accommodation should not exceed certain limitations, such as: * three people in studio apartments * four people in one bedroom apartments * six people in two-bedroom apartments * Nine people in three-bedroom apartments Similarly, in Dubai, there are certain industrial areas specifically designated for housing industrial workers and labourers, such as the Al Quoz, Mushainah area. Further, there are specific residential areas such as Muraqqabat and Al Rigga areas, where sharing of accommodation is allowed for bachelors. The parameters for sharing of accommodation in such designated areas are generally bases on the rule that a minimum area of 40 square feet should be allotted per person in the bedroom. It is also to be understood that until recently, it was illegal in the UAE for un-married couples or people of opposite genders to live together in an accommodation. However, with the recent changes brought in, the same is no longer illegal, however subject to the rules that apply to bachelor accommodations. Further, pursuant to Article 25(1)(b) of Dubai Rent Law, allows the landlord to evict a tenant when: "Where the tenant uses the real property or allows others to use it for any illegal purpose or for a purpose which breaches public order or morals." Thereby, tenants should ensure to check with their respective landlords the rules and regulations imposed on the residential property and should endeavour to abide by them in order to avoid potential eviction. Though presumably simple enough, tenancy law can often prove challenging for residents and therefore, wherever possible, they should seek legal advice and assistance to avoid disadvantageous circumstances and potential losses
Common NYC Jobs That Are More Dangerous Than You Think
New York City is a hub full of employment opportunities. The sheer density of people in a relatively small area, such as Manhattan, is a natural job creator. However, along comes a certain danger – work accidents. Police officers and firefighters are often regarded as the brave faces amid dangerous work environments, but they aren’t the only ones. There are some jobs in New York City that disproportionately lead to injury and death among workers.  Here are a few of the most common causes of workplace injuries and the jobs that see the highest rate of injuries in New York City.    * Construction work is by far the most dangerous profession in New York City, accounting for over a quarter of all fatalities, even though it makes up just 6% of the workforce. Exposure to heights, heavy machinery, and power tools pose a risk of injury and death.   * Taxis, limousines, and other transit drivers must deal with the usual dangers on the road, including accidents and crashes. They must also consider the possibilities of assault and robbery, sometimes by their passengers. The dangers are often intensified when working at night due to alcohol.   * Subway workers: The backbone of New York City's transportation system requires a great deal of inspection and maintenance, which can mean putting workers in danger of electrocution.   * Sanitation workers face hazards daily working with large, heavy machinery and performing physically demanding jobs. Impatient drivers who also try to pass garbage trucks and inadvertently hit workers also pose a risk.   * Couriers on any mode of transportation navigate the chaotic streets to deliver documents while trying to avoid the dangers posed by unpredictable drivers or simply the unexpected opening of a car door. The most common injuries linked with some of the above-mentioned professions include, but are not limited to:   * Overexertion injuries relate to pushing, pulling, lifting, carrying, throwing, etc. They are often associated with pulling a muscle or pulling your back out.   * Slipping or tripping injuries occur due to wet floors or materials unexpectedly obstructing walkways. Falling from heights, such as from a ladder, or being struck by a falling object, whether from a shelf in an office or tools on a construction site, are another leading cause of on-the-job injuries.
Why Falling Furniture is the Most Underrated Hazard to Children
Home furniture may seem harmless. Nevertheless, it is surprising how often children can discover hazardous places and objects. When children play, it is natural for them to want to reach, climb and pull on furniture when exploring their surroundings. There are no limits to a child’s creativity and curiosity. Getting to know their environment is an important part of childhood development, leading them to every corner of the room – but it’s not always for the better.  They often use cupboards and shelves as climbing walls. Despite their light weight, a child’s maneuvers can be enough to tip large pieces of furniture over. The center of gravity shifts beyond the base of the furniture and can topple over. Heavier appliances, such as grand bookshelves and television sets can cause serious injuries and even death. There has been an eerily steady number of wrongful death lawsuits reported by the CPSC, regarding unsafe falling furniture. The most effective way to prevent accidents is to fix all furniture to the wall, but it’s not always enough. Children are especially at risk because they are unaware of these dangers. When furniture falls over, they are not quick enough to react and avoid impact. Moreover, they are not strong enough to lift anything off themselves.  Furniture on lower levels may equally tip over. This is especially present when several drawers are open at the same time or when they are full - shifting the center of gravity off the base chests of drawers. The same effect occurs when a child climbs onto it. Therefore, furniture built both horizontally or vertically should probably be anchored to the wall. Another good idea is to place most of the weight in the lower chests, more so than the higher ones.  Most people don't anticipate furniture overturning, since such accidents are rarely reported in the news. Heavy lobbying from furniture-making companies, such as IKEA, make it so that most of the blame is placed on the consumer rather than the manufacturer. Nevertheless, wrongful death suits continue to be filed by personal injury law firms, most of which understand the tactics used by insurance companies. It makes it that much more important to try to prevent falling furniture accidents, but also to have the proper information to take action if you or your child becomes a victim to it. 
Why Diving Head-First is a Major Cause of Spinal Cord Injury
The spinal cord is an indispensable element of strength and communication within the human body. It quickly flows information to the brain, controlling our body temperature and levels of pain.  Diving headfirst into shallow water is tantamount to causing paralysis. Statistics show that every year such jumps end in disability for one in every 400 people. Roughly half of diving injuries to the spine end in damage to the spinal cord. Injuries to the spinal cord occur most often in people between 15 and 35 years of age, despite numerous educational campaigns. The consequences of a spinal cord injury depend on the site of the injury. It is influenced by the height from which the jump is made, body weight, and the depth of the reservoir. The closer the injury is to the head, the worse it can get. Conversely, if there is an injury below the chest, only the legs may be paralyzed. With any luck, during an unfortunate jump, only the core will shake, which results in paralysis lasting several seconds. Jumping into the water can also injure the spine without damaging the spinal cord. The spine consists of a column of bones called vertebrae. The spinal cord is a long, fragile structure contained in the spinal canal that runs through the center of the spine, and is protected by the vertebrae. The aftermath of spine damage is slightly milder than spinal injuries, although still very severe. The patient experiences uncomfortable sensations but maintains the ability to move their limbs. Well-provided first aid is extremely important in this case, otherwise a broken spine may eventually damage the spinal cord. The most serious spinal cord injuries are to the upper parts of the neck. If the phrenic nerve is paralyzed, it causes the patient to suffocate. Their survival depends on a quick rescue operation with intubation. Other unfortunate effects of a jump-gone-wrong can be paraplegia and tetraplegia.  Paraplegia causes paresis of the lower limbs, while maintaining the efficiency of the upper limbs. Disturbance in urination is a common characteristic. The patient must work hard to regain fitness, although it rarely returns to the level before the accident. Tetraplegia occurs when the spine is damaged at high levels of the cervical spine. The patient cannot eat on his own and has problems with swallowing.  Returning to normal life after an accident is difficult and sometimes impossible. A broken spine causes significant pain in the area around it. To relieve the discomfort, patients must wear a supportive corset for several months to a year. It is often necessary to stiffen the spine surgically, and even insert an implant. Rehabilitation comes after, the aim of which is to minimize the effects of an injury and to prevent degenerative changes. Nevertheless, such a condition is prone to welcome further injuries due to the imbalance of the spine and the distribution of overload of other shafts and discs.
