HOW TO: Stay Safe in Your Vehicle

Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:

Though improvements in technology help to lower the number of car accidents that occur each year, it still remains that most accidents are the result of human error. In order to lower your risk of getting into an accident it is vital to practice safe driving skills. Regardless of whether you are a first time driver or have been behind the wheel for many decades, in this post, Gregg S. Marcus, a Long Island Insurance Executive advises that everyone follow these same safety precautions:

Slow Down!
It goes without saying that driving the speed limit is one of the simplest ways to stay safe. The old expression “speed kills” proves to be true. Studies have shown for every mile per hour you drive over the speed limit you are 4 or 5% more likely to get into an accident. With this logic while traveling ten miles past the speed limit (which happens quite often) you have nearly a 50% more likely chance of being part of an auto accident.

HOW TO: Protect Your Home From Burglaries

Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:

Long Island Insurance Executive, Gregg S. Marcus, lists some easy ways to avoid your home becoming part of this scary statistic.

Secure your home’s property
Walk around the perimeter of your property and assess where the home’s weaknesses are. Adding high walls, fences and thorny hedges will make your property less of a target to intruders. Make sure to keep ladders, bins and garden benches away from your places where someone might use them to get easy access to your home.

Home alarms
If you don’t have a home alarm, it is in your best interest to get one. If you do have an alarm, make sure there is signage on your gate, windows or near your front door to make it known to thieves. Remember, a home alarm can’t stop a thief from gaining access to your home, but it certainly may deter a burglar from trying.

Keep all doors and windows locked
