When the weather warms, counties across Washington start holding fairs. In the past, fairs were mainly agricultural, but these days, they are all about fun. You can still see animals, watch a rodeo and enjoy entertainment, but one of the biggest draws to any fair is the midway. Since these rides are constantly being moved around, they are often inspected by various individuals. National Law Review notes the state does have an agency that conducts inspections, but it is never guaranteed that the ride is completely safe and nothing was missed.
If you drive on Washington highways or interstates, then you may have heard the term road gators. According to Allstate, a road gator is a piece of tire that has been lost when driving. They are from large trucks that lose bits of their tires as they drive. Often the drivers never even realize they have lost part of a tire. However, these tire bits remain in the roadway, posing a hazard for other vehicles on the road.
Getting your driver's license is a huge step in life. The privilege to drive is something not to be taken lightly. The state of Washington has set a path you must follow to get your first license. It involves a few steps that will help ensure you are prepared for the responsibility of driving.
