Pedestrian Accidents, Car Accidents, and Motorcycle Accidents Increase with School Traffic

In many areas, Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer vacation and a return to school for children. Buses are on the road, recent permit and license holders are behind the wheel, and traffic congestion is at an all-time high.

Is your Website ADA Compliant?

The Americans with Disabilities Act states that places of public accommodation, like stores, museums, restaurants, and movie theaters, must ensure equal access to the goods and services to people with disabilities as to people without disabilities.

Can my Child's School Suspend him for Posting on Facebook?

Back on October 23, 2013, a Central York High School student posted a remark on Facebook after a bomb threat had forced the school to evacuate. His post, "Plot twist, bomb isn't found and goes off tomorrow," was seen as enough of a threat by the school's administrators that the district's superintendent questioned the student on his ability to make a bomb, and later suspended the student for 10 days.
