Teen Driving Tips

Teen Driving TipsUsing These Guidelines For Teaching Your Teen Driver

You have probably simultaneously been dreading and dreaming of your teen’s ability to drive him or herself places without you. You will worry about your young driver on the roadways, but you will also be free of your carpool responsibilities. So you can have peace of mind when your teen gets behind the wheel, use these training tips.

  • Do gradually build your teen up to highway driving. Start in parking lots, then move to quiet neighborhoods, and continue working your way up as your driver gets more comfortable.
  • Don’t panic. Try to avoid gripping your armrest or slamming on an imaginary brake. If you are feeling freaked out, force yourself to take a deep breath and try to be gentle verbally with your young driver.
  • Do make your teen silence his or her cell phone and stash it in the center console or glove box.

Is Your Home Protected From Pests?The Spotted Lanternfly Makes Its Debut In The United States

You may remember building your bug collection in Biology class in high school and marveling at all of the different types of insects this great state has to offer. Unfortunately, the Spotted Lanternfly is invading Pennsylvania’s natural insect kingdom. Originally a native of Asia, these insects have been identified in the United States for the first time.

While the US is a melting pot usually welcoming to outsiders, this insect is one we should be seeking to eradicate. Appearing moth-like, with one pair of tan wings spotted with black and a second pair of red, white, and black wings, this creature poses a threat to local vegetation.

The grape, apple, and stone fruit industries bring in over $175 million for the state’s economy, but are at risk for being destroyed as these pests eat their way through them. Furthermore, the state’s pine and hardwood industries—which bring in $12 billion of annual revenue—could be affected.  Contact Miller Insurance Associates in Carlisle for all of your insurance needs in Pennsylvania.
