Gov. Abbott to extend TSBPE to 2021

This is a win for the first battle, but the war is not won yet. The Rally at the Texas State Capital, on the south steps, is still set to happen today, June 14th, at 11 am. You may hard pressed to find a plumber to do any work in Texas due to this scheduled rally. It is said that the petition to support licensed plumbers has already obtained over 91,500 supporters.

Attn: Plumbers-Gov. Abbott has heard your calls!

In regards to the upcoming changes with the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners, Gov. Abbott has been listening and he has promised to to take action as he says, “Don’t worry.” This comes at the tail end of many Texas Plumbers who are fighting the closure of the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners. The thought of any untrained person being able to call themselves a plumber and legally work without a license in the state of Texas is not sitting well with the more than 73,000 people who have already signed a petition against this change. It is also expected that a large group rally at the Texas State Capital in the upcoming week, on June 14th at 11 AM CDT. Click on this link and read the news bulletin from Austin’s KXAN, released on June 4, 2019 at 6:28 PM CDT. You may also want to sneak a peek at the governor’s latest tweets. (@gregabbot_TX )

It’s Almost The End Of Summer

The end of summer is almost here and that means millions of Texas children will soon return to school. TxDOT reminds drivers to always stop for flashing red lights on a school bus. Be safe, drive smart.

Last year, 663 vehicle crashes occurred in school zones in Texas, resulting in zero deaths and 21 serious injuries. August and September of 2014 alone saw 107 crashes in school zones. The most common factors contributing to these crashes were driver inattention, failure to control speed and failure to yield the right of way at stop signs.

Following these simple tips can help Texas children reach school safely and help drivers avoid costly fines and tickets.

Tips for Driving in School Zones

  • Put away your cell phone. Cell phone use is banned in active school zones, and violators face fines of up to $200 in school zones where signs are posted.
  • Always obey school zone speed limit signs. Remember, traffic fines usually double in school zones.
  • Drop off and pick up your children in your school’s designated areas, not the middle of the street.
  • Keep an eye on children gathered at bus stops.
  • Be alert for children who might dart across the street or between vehicles on their way to school.

Tips for Children Walking or Biking to School

  • Always cross at intersections and designated crosswalks. Look left, right and then left again before proceeding.
  • Look for traffic when stepping off a bus or from behind parked cars.
  • Make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street.
  • Always obey crossing guards.
  • Always wear a helmet when riding a bicycle.

Left Lane

We’ve heard many of you didn’t know: The left lane on a divided highway is a PASSING lane. After you pass someone, move into the right lane so you don’t hold up traffic. Impeding the flow of traffic by continuing to drive in the left lane is punishable by a fine of up to $200.

A passing lane is commonly referred to as a “fast lane” because it is often used for extended periods of time for through traffic or fast traffic. However, a passing lane should be used only for passing, thus allowing, even on a road with only two lanes in each direction, motorists to travel at their own pace.

Traffic Jam Tips

Below are some useful tips for the next time you are in traffic.

Image result for traffic

Make smart driving decisions:

  • Avoid aggressive driving and weaving from lane to lane.
  • Keep a safe distance at least three seconds between you and the vehicle ahead of you. This will help you avoid frequent braking and rear-end collisions.
  • Watch the traffic ahead closely. When cars in front brake, take your foot off the accelerator to slow down gradually before you brake. Be cautious not to brake abruptly.
  • Stay focused. Keep your mind on driving by avoiding distractions such as eating or using your cell phone.

Follow driving fundamentals

  • Use your blinkers when changing lanes or merging. Most state laws require activating blinkers at least 100 feet before merging or turning, but some states require at least 200 feet.
  • Use your mirrors to monitor the areas around your car. Perform head checks to check your blind spots before changing lanes or merging.
  • Use the length of the acceleration lane to merge safely into traffic.
  • Be responsible with technology, and plan ahead. Before you start your trip, check traffic apps on your phone or listen to radio reports to avoid congested areas. If you’re worried about encountering heavy traffic during your commute, take time before you leave to map out an alternate route on your GPS.

Check The Back Seat

As the heat rises so does hot-car death rates. New technology may be able to help cut these down.

Drivers get reminders to wear a seat-belt, turn off the headlights and close the gas-tank door. Now, they’re also getting alerts to check the back seat for young passengers.

Nissan’s rear-door alert system will become standard on all four-door trucks, cars and SUVs with power locks by its 2022 model year. The system has door sensors, a dashboard message and horn ‘chirps’ that remind drivers to check the back seat.

This year 29 children have died from heatstroke while in a hot vehicle.  This makes 2018 one of the deadliest on record. Heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash related vehicular deaths.

Nissan plans to announce  a system that will remind drivers to check for occupants in the back seat. Nissan’s system will become standard on all four-door trucks, cars and SUVs with power locks by its 2022 model year. Nissan is believed to be the first to make such an alert a standard feature across its fleet of applicable vehicles, a move safety-advocates have long recommended.

You have reminders for seat-belts, but should you really have a reminder not to leave your children in the hot car?

When was the last time you thought about an emergency-preparedness plan?

“Never,” is the answer most people would give, which could have terrible consequences if you happen to be caught in the middle of a disaster. September was National Preparedness Month but hurricane season is here until the end of November and since disasters can strike at any moment, it’s important to prepare before disaster strikes …today.

Creating an emergency plan is a good start, but remember, you should review it with your family annually. For example, do you have a newborn in the family? Did you adopt a pet? Have emergency kit materials expired? If you’ve experienced any of these or other changes, then you need to update your plan to make sure you’re prepared. Here are six things to consider during your routine yearly disaster preparedness check-up:

  1. Check emergency kit materials
    Refresh everyone’s memory of where the emergency kit is located. Check expiration dates of materials in the kit to assure perishable items will last for at least another year, including food, water and batteries.
  2. Update your emergency plan
    A basic plan should have a meeting place in case disaster hits and your home becomes unsafe, as well as at least two escape routes. Each year, make sure to remind everyone of the meeting place, ensure it is still a safe location and evaluate everyone’s escape routes to avoid new obstructions. Take into account any special needs of children, seniors, people with disabilities, family members who don’t speak English and pets.
  3. Know how to turn off your utilities
    Learn where the utility shut-offs are located and how to operate them. Turning off gas mains can prevent leaks and turning off electricity can help prevent potential fires started by electrical sparks. Additionally, turning off your water main can help prevent flooding.
  4. Practice home safety 
    Home safety should be observed year-round, not just in the event of an impending disaster. Install smoke detectors in each room of your home and replace the batteries every six months. Store heavy items on the lowest shelves. Combustible items such as firewood, picnic tables, boats and flammable liquids should be kept separately and 50 feet from your home and other structures.
  5. Prepare your insurance Getting ready for a natural disaster actually starts by choosing your insurance policy. Ask yourself: Do I have enough insurance to repair or replace my home if it is damaged or destroyed? We recommend you get an insurance check-up from your agent or broker once a year to help you make an informed decision about the coverage you need.
  6. Catalog your property
    Recovering from a disaster takes time. To ease this process, keep a detailed inventory of your property and update it annually. Photos and videos of your home can be presented to insurance adjusters to help your claim. Mashable, a technology blog, provides a list of eight home inventory apps that make creating inventory of your property easy.

Smart Irrigation Month

When you water your lawn this summer, keep these things in mind:

As much as 50% of water used for watering is wasted because of inefficient methods. July is Smart Irrigation Month, a great time to make smart changes to save water and money!

What is Smart Irrigation Month?

Smart Irrigation Month is a public awareness campaign to promote efficient water use. Using water wisely:

  • Saves money on your utility bill.

  • Nurtures green spaces that deliver real environmental benefits.

  • Protects your community’s water supply for generations to come.

  • Minimizes needed investments in infrastructure to store and carry water, which must be paid for by property taxes or municipal bonds.

Automatic watering or sprinkler systems — known in the trade as irrigation systems — deliver exactly the right amount of water at the right time. Efficient irrigation systems:

  • Minimize overwatering while keeping your lawn and garden beautiful and healthy.

  • Adjust watering automatically to account for rain and other conditions.

  • Put every drop of water to work by minimizing evaporation and waste.

  • Make maintaining your yard easy and convenient.
