Handling large amounts of money and accounts for businesses can be complex. As well as having to manage large amounts of money, it may be tempting for an employee to justify taking some cash or for an employer to accuse an employee of theft when accounts cannot be reconciled.

As you listen to your favorite morning tune and enjoy the freedom of being behind the wheel, you feel optimistic about the day ahead. However, all of a sudden, another driver carelessly crosses the middle line of the road and enters your car's path.

Many bicyclists would agree that the fall weather is perfect for enjoying bike riding. Not only are people enjoying it for sport, but some are using it for a source of transportation.

Motorcyclists and bicyclists are especially at risk in the event of truck accidents because they have no enclosed vehicle to frame and protect them as they travel. Sadly, one man recently died after a tragic collision with a dump truck.
