TGIF, rush hour road rule tips and weekend festivites!

“Tick tock, Tick tock,” goes the clock as you wait in anticipation for five o clock to be here. It is finally Friday once again and the week has been anything but pleasant. As we wait for the end of the day to arrive to rush out the door, remember, it is important to get home, safely.

As you zoom out of the parking lot, please be aware that other individuals are in the same rush to make it to happy hour or kick back their shoes. Remaining safe on the road is a guaranteed way to start the weekend off right. Here are a few tips for staying safe during rush hour:

  • Check your blind spots!
  • Don’t tailgate and remain a safe distance between the car in front of you.
  • Don’t swerve into other peoples lanes.
  • Mind the speed limit!
  • Click it so you wont get a ticket!

The weekend is approaching faster than I would have thought. As you find something to do this weekend, stop by and experience, live music, great food, and free giveaways at Blick Law Firm as we choose to celebrate our 25th year serving the community with you. On October 2nd, 2011 from 12pm – 5pm, the Custom Car and Bike Show will bring many people with lots of fun for a great cause. Portions of the proceeds will be going to the Salvation Army to assist in a program called, ‘Half Way House for Women.’

Slips and falls are the most reoccurring incident among the elderly as balance begins to change. According to Premier Care in Bathing, the cost of injuries with older people is high due to the high death tolls, disabling conditions, and recovery in hospitals.

Blick Law Firm Salutes Tampa Bay Rays

According to Mayor Bill Foster, today is known as “Rays Day”. As a way to celebrate a job well done a Tampa Bay Rays banner is displayed in front of City Hall to celebrate the team’s sensational push to the playoffs.

Wow. What a night last night as the Tampa Bay Rays held on for an unexpected win. Unbelievable. Tampa Bay had the greatest comeback in baseball history. The Rays came back from a 7-0 deficit against the Yankees to win 8-7 on an Evan Longoria home run in the 12th inning. What a win!

Tampa Bay Rays head to Texas as the American League wild-card winner with Game 1 of the AL division series scheduled for Friday.

The city is encouraging fans to represent Rays gear and businesses to put “Go Rays!” messages on their marquees. At Blick Law Firm, we are proud to support the Tampa Bay Rays and be a part of this miraculous part of baseball’s history.

City officials plan a rally before the first home game of the American League Division Series on Monday. Details to come.

Lets. Go. Rays.

Finding Tampa Bay’s most dangerous commuting spots

Article by Tampa Bay Business News

One morning, as I took the I-275 curve in downtown Tampa, and where lanes merge from the I-4 traffic, I narrowly escaped disaster when someone emerged from my blind spot.

That got me thinking about whether this frenetic location — which went through some massive re-engineering a number of years ago — was among the most dangerous in the Tampa Bay commute.

So, with the help of Editorial Intern Laura Cressman, we set out to analyze where area commuters should exercise the most caution during rush hours. Our story appears today in the print edition of the Tampa Bay Business Journal.

We also are making available to readers a searchable database of 141 points, searchable by roadway name, showing some very interesting data about incidents over two years, 2008 to 2010.

While fairly obvious, our reporting shows the biggest cause of crashes isn’t roadway design, but more human behavior, from texting to those chronically late to work trying to rush, eat and talk on the phone along the way.

So, take it easy out there!
