ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE WRITING CRASH LANE NEWS

CRASH LANE NEWS, was written using interviews with several different travel professionals, and Officials in United States Government Agencies. The writing process used several examples from different jobs in transportation. Interviews about the weather were based on travel routes previously traveled in the region. There was a clear reason to write the weather was a challenge. The book wrote itself after the interviews were completed about the weather. There are challenges when communicating at anytime. That communication challenge is also why it is called CRASH LANE NEWS. There are communication problems that exist affecting everyday life caused by fake news, defamation, libel, slander, and most importantly the reality of not reporting at all by News Agencies, and more importantly by the United States Government. The book used the First Amendment Right of the Freedom of Speech, to communicate respectfully, and to prevent accidents.

CHAPTER 1

A Traveler Should Know Who Controls the News


A traveler should know the government of the country he or she is traveling in and how the companies that lobbied that government into office want it to function. The government will try to protect its supporters and lobbyists. This can include passing laws that will protect those supporters while amending laws that might threaten them. The news releases from the public relations office in the government may offer a limited version of what occurred to protect the government and its friends.

There is an entire public relations operation controlling the amount of news being released by each company and government. Most government news releases do not focus on the bad but on new programs and technologies that promise improvements. It is the private news industry that has the ability to sometimes build a story when the government fails to release information. This can lead to investigations of an incident by an oversight committee or other kind of inspection through the inspector general.

The president of the United States and the U.S. Congress control the news significantly when it comes to foreign policy issues and issues surrounding everyday life in America. Large corporations that lobby the government will also convey information in a news release, which influences the news even more than the government. Companies can alter the truth of safety news that goes out to the public.

This is where Crash Lane News comes in. It is an alternative source of accident news. If you are driving and realize your lane on the interstate or street is stopped, you can wait it out or try to get out while you can. Many drivers do not want to wait for someone else's accident to get investigated and cleaned up, and so they change out of the crash lane. Crash Lane News covers issues the regular media swerve around as they make no effort to discover the real story.

There is a level of false reporting that exists due to the major news media controlling what is reported. False reporting protects the existing government from becoming irrelevant. False reporting protects businesses from becoming safety and security violators. As false reporting controls the news media, false reporting controls the world.

A traveler should know that news releases can sometimes mislead the public into thinking things are getting safer. In the category of "color of law" violations, this could represent a "failure to keep from harm" violation on the part of the government if a report ends up causing injury and death because the public believed something to be safe. Another issue is the fact that manipulation of safety data released by governments and companies may cover up the reality of dangers.

One example is the traffic violations and accidents caused by commercial truck drivers. Many members of the public have fears regarding the safety of trucks on the highway. The Federal Motor Carriers Security Administration (FMCSA) is a Department of Transportation program. The FMCSA is designed to control and release safety data to the public, hoping to increase awareness of unsafe driving issues related to commercial motor vehicles. Trucking companies have had their safety information posted online on the FMCSA website for a few years, and the data are presented as showing a reduction in accidents and fatalities.

With all the good the government and large companies appear to be doing with the FMCSA, there is an issue of why things get reported and released to the public the way they do. Unfortunately, the strategy of focusing on the trucking side means that safety at the warehouse and the responsibility shipping and receiving companies bear in the violations and accidents are not mentioned by the FMCSA. There are other causes to the accidents and violations than what is mentioned by the FMCSA. Currently, the commercial trucking industry is broken down by the FMCSA with a focus on the physical act of trucking not being safe, forgetting to mention the problems of management. The company rating is as close as the FMCSA gets to the trucking companies' involvement, but it does not mention management to be the cause of the poor ratings. The data the FMCSA presents are on a violation's citation. They leave out the example of an accident being caused by the weather or management. Even though there is this company rating, the FMCSA shows the accident to have only been caused by the driver, being that they do not rate the dispatchers and the trucking companies' supervisors.

The death rate is also something the regular news does not really focus on. The number of trucking issues is also relatively small compared to the death rate from health problems, violent crime, property crime, and disasters. Yet this FMCSA website goes into detail on accidents and violations. It can cause confusion as to what is most important. With the example of the FMCSA, the government seems to be suggesting that traffic violations and accidents are more important and more in need of detailed examination than healthcare, violent crime, property crime, and disasters.

Most of the public would appreciate a government website that rates healthcare with a focus on increasing the quality and length of life. Most of the public would also like to know the details of violent crime and property crime areas and other circumstances. The public would like to know where the color-of-law-violating law enforcement officers are so they can avoid becoming a victim of misconduct. Most of the public would like to know more about how to prevent damage from a disaster and ways to avoid a disaster. Most of the public does not get this information through the news media in any simple form.

News about the government is spread out and very limited at times. Some of the government agencies that provide information to the public include the Department of Health, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Department of Defense.

This book contains some lessons learned from traveling in the weather as well, including interviews with personnel from the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), also known as the National Weather Service. NOAA is a part of the Department of Commerce, which also has some information available to the public online. Note that one of the issues presented about FMCSA is that some of the causes of accidents are never made public. There are many violations publicized in which the driver did something wrong, but when you take a step back, there may be other issues on the management end of a driver's company that resulted in accidents. Other accidents may result from the absence of an updated law enforcement system.

Most law enforcement agencies work with weather information, and are the first eyewitnesses as to what kind of accidents occur as a result of the weather. Unfortunately, it is also a challenge for law enforcement to keep the public safe by not being everywhere in a storm system. Another continuing problem is law enforcement and the Department of Transportation's lack of road closures during severe weather. The solution is that the public needs the government to be available at the right time, helping to prevent accidents. Many times, this issue does not come back as a failure of law enforcement to keep a traveler from a harmful situation, so the strategy to make the needed changes does not get funded or become an updated part of how things are done. For the most part, the public is more informed than ever by law enforcement and NOAA, but questions remain.

The graphic of the blooming into disaster meter on the front cover is a good example of some of the issues that affect travelers that may go unnoticed by the news agencies because of the political issues or the ability of a challenged investigative reporter. The managers of news agencies sometimes make decisions to limit reporting that would tarnish local area businesses and provoke lawsuits. Some things that affect everyone do go unreported—for example, issues with healthcare. Large industries can sometimes limit and silence a news story, which is another important thing to be aware of.

According to the FMCSA, most accidents are caused by unsafe driving. But when the same logic is applied to other vehicles and types of travel, the reality of how the weather is a danger sometimes is forgotten. The interviews and the discussions with NOAA summarize some suggestions for travelers that may add to their knowledge of how to be safe.

The attempt to make a news report based on the weather information available through NOAA is a continuing theme in this book. The information about the weather and how to learn more about it is one of the more important areas of focus. Travelers should know that news agencies are going to have a weather reporter as well as a weather page that can help them know about hazardous conditions when traveling. Also note that there is a great deal of information on government websites that is worth searching out. Ways to find that information and learn from it are included in this book.

Unfortunately, there are some things that are not as transparent and not available on the Internet and to the public as a result of a lack of government accountability and oversight. Some of those are issues for an inspector general to deal with; in other cases, the authorities employ a strategy of learning what hazards exist for a location in order to keep them from becoming an issue. It's worth remembering that often what is available to the public is what has been reported in the news media. A traveler should watch the news, because it offers a point of view on which issues the news agency has chosen to focus on.

Some of the information made public by the government regarding travel may not include the entire story. Many in the United States feel as though their freedom to travel has become restricted as a result of violations to their constitutional rights. One example is that there are many safety violations that can be handed down by law enforcement. The public did not vote directly on these laws, but their representatives did, which is the basis for an interesting discussion of how freedom and democracy can be defined. It is not the intention of this book to badmouth the government that is in place now or in the future, just to make clear that there are many opinions about traveling and the issues of why things are the way they are. Another example is how some of the larger and better-financed groups can end up working with the government in a way that benefits them more. This is also something to be aware of, because it can affect which news is reported.

The reason behind a particular news story is not always obvious. Some decisions are made behind the scenes that determine how the public receives the news. Politics is sometimes a motivation for a story about an issue, and a news agency will not always reveal what political concerns are a factor in the way a news report is created and planned. There is a complex maze of available information that can help a traveler learn about an area, but remember, the level of transparency can vary.

Crash Lane News shares information about some areas through realworld experience and professional discussions of security and safety. The topics of organizational security and management focus on ways to manage security that travelers can supply to their own needs to make a plan on how to be safe and secure. Many travelers rely on businesses to plan their trip but should know the security management strategies these companies rely on. A traveler can build a substantial list of areas to remember and plan to visit on a trip. After reading this book, travelers will have advice they can use to be more safe and secure.

This book was written in the United States of America, and it is for U.S. citizens who travel. A reader should keep an open mind when reading this book, knowing that it may contain some errors and some information that is out of date. The main intention is to discuss serious issues at a simplified and understandable level. Travel safely.

CHAPTER 2

Meaning and Language


The translation of the title Crash Lane News into different languages results in some variations and loses some of the original meaning. Many of the foreign names that follow do translate back to Crash Lane News. In some languages, though, the words are changed or modified to, for example, Accident Lane News or Crash Road News or Accident Road News. The meaning may get lost along the way.

Some languages do not have a direct translation for crash and lane. It's interesting that a language would not have a word for lane even though most countries do have some multilane roads. When there are a limited number of roads, the lack of lanes can cause delays when there is no traffic control. A road without multiple lanes is not always a bad thing, as long as there is a way to be safe and secure. For example, some remote or rural areas may have a single-lane road. Most states in the United States have multilane roads, and there is one single language being used, so it's easy to communicate when there is an accident in a lane.

Travelers should understand that language varies over time, and some phrases are going to be misunderstood or totally confusing. A traveler should also know that languages vary, and being able to describe things accurately or learn about safety situations beforehand by knowing the language is an important addition to a safety plan. Being able to communicate to others while traveling about hazards that may affect a route ahead has a major impact on whether a trip will be safe.

The word news in the title Crash Lane News is also meaningful, part of my attempt to write about how to be safe with a catchy title that makes it clear there will be news coverage of crashes. The lane part is supposed to mean that many travelers have been in the crash lane. Travelers usually see the crash up ahead and get delayed. Travelers may also unfortunately end up being involved in the crash itself. This book is an attempt to give a traveler advice on how not to become involved in a crash. The main objective is to express the importance of watching the weather and traffic density when a trip is routed. Know that transportation accidents are caused by severe weather.

As a result of this awareness, travelers will learn from the existing public crash statistics, know more about what is available to help them drive safely, and avoid any involvement in a crash in the future.

One of the main pieces of advice suggested by the title Crash Lane News is that when travelers have more options and information from the news about where they are, it can help them to plan for their trip to be as safe as possible. For example, a traveler who knows what to do and what kind of unsafe driving conditions are out there can make a plan to avoid them ahead of time. The Department of Motor Vehicles and law enforcement do not always mention all the different violations in a neat list greatest to least. Other than some public information available through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the government is not that transparent and does not show regular updates in real time about what it enforces.

What has been posted by the FMCSA regarding ratings has been considered by them to be transparent. When some government departments do mention the accident rates and other information like violations, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration does, the traveling public can learn about them and know what to avoid. Other suggestions and many examples of information are included in this book. Also the opinion on how transportation is being managed is included along with some failures and suggested solutions.

There are other reasons why these title words were chosen. One was that many news agencies share stories or seem to print the exact same story on the front page. This is interesting for travelers to know about in that there will be some variations in the way the story is covered. The local news in the region may have some strategies designed to hold on to advertisers. Newspapers want people to read and be their customers, so certain things may end up getting reported on more. Sometimes important stories do not get put out there.

7 April 2016 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CRASHLANENEWS.COM Tel: (559) 676-7579 CRASH LANE NEWS, named Foreword Reviews' 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards Finalist Chapter 1 Review A Traveler should know who Controls the News This chapter exposes the travelers to the facts that one should consider about the nation they are travelling to. This is mainly due to the fact that most governments are keen to protect the companies and lobbyist who supports them. Some of the laws that are passed or amended by the governments are aimed at protecting their supporters. The government usually monitors the information released to the public where they mainly focus on the release of good news as opposed to the release of bad news. The chapter is interesting in that it provides the purpose of the Crash Lane News which includes making an effort to discover the truth behind an incident which other media centers fails to investigate. The Crash Lane News thus acts as a source of truth for the citizens of the United States and Travelers. The Crash Lane News seeks to alter the falsehood that is usually reported by other media in an effort to protect the government. The chapter exposes how the government and private companies manipulate data for their own benefits. Some of the data that are usually manipulated includes; healthcare, death rates, weather, nations security and safety data. I find the chapter quite informative and exciting to read due to the in-depth information that it provides. Chapter 2 Review Nations and Language The chapter deals with the effect that language have on the meaning of a word. As one word is being translated from one language to the other, the original and intended meaning may be altered. This is the main reason why a traveler must acknowledge this fact and understand that some phrases may be confusing or misunderstood when translated to another language. The chapter uses clear illustrations to explain the manner in which a word or phrase may differ when translated. It is important that a traveler is able to learn the language of a place in developing the safety plan for travelling. The hazards associated to travelling should be considered before traveling. The traveler should be on the lookout for the weather condition and the traffic density as most of the accidents on road are caused by severe weather conditions. The Crash Lane News is the best solution for traveler when it comes to access to information about the place they are travelling which assists them to keep safe. Most of the government agencies do not release the correct information with regards to accidents rates. Chapter 3 Review Introduction to CrashLane News.com In this chapter you will be introduced to CrashLaneNews.com which is responsible promoting and advertising the book.

'Crash Lane News' is definitely a must have for anyone planning a trip, big or small. It doesn't just take into account the important issues that can come up when travelling, but also the things that can easily be forgotten, such as safety equipment or emergency supplies that are useful to have with you just in case. This advice would certainly have come in handy for me, when trapped on a coach on a motorway for ten hours after heavy snowfall. The book is full of a number of great tips for travellers, that is communicated in a interesting way, with great use of charts and diagram, as opposed to long sections of prose. The book shows how aware that travellers need to be when it comes to the information the media is giving them. They need to know that they may not be getting the full picture, as it may not be beneficial to a umber of industries to tell tourists not to travel, or to avoid certain areas. 'Crash Lane News' gives the reader the knowledge to know where to look to get the correct information, particularly on the weather, so they don't end up in trouble on the road. An essential read for all those that want to have fun and travel, but want to do so safely.

A Definite Must-Have Guide for Travelers This book here is the must-have guide for those who are travelers. It’s packed with all the information and guidelines that will benefit travelers as they plan their trip on the roads of America. It is a self-help book that lists all the “objectives and content based on current federal, state, and local public safety laws. There are also some professional suggestions about personal security regulations and methods for a trip” (CrashLaneNews.com). These suggestions will help a traveler avoid accidents or violent crimes associated with transportation on US roads. The book also has the code of ethics for a traveler that ensures a more safe and secure trip. One of the things listed in this book that I previously did not think of so much was the fact that the weather can also be a factor for accidents to occur during a trip cross-country. I know, silly me. Yes, the weather pattern should be weighed when you are planning a trip on the road. I know the reason why I was this way about this piece of fact was that I never am in a vehicle while the weather outside is raging or out of control. Rainstorms yes but not hurricanes and tornadoes which are a usual weather pattern here in the USA. This makes this book all the more handy for travelers because it is so thorough and packed with all the major and minute what-to-do’s for travelers to consider. I give this book a great nod for that matter! I recommend this book fiercely to travelers of all kinds of transportation methods. You should know about the tips and procedures that this masterpiece carries because your life is valuable and that you deserve to know about them. It’s a great gift for that college son or daughter you have, that teen driver in your family, that traveling husband or wife, boyfriend or girlfriend of yours, that aunt or uncle in your family who always drives over for the holidays or that friend you have that lives far from you because you never know what may happen. By following the methods and guidelines in here, and by knowing the rules and regulations also listed in here, chances are that you will be preventing a car accident from happening to you or your loved ones. You won’t be wasting your money on this one my friend! Be good to yourself and order this baby right now!

"Indie Fab Book of the Year Travel Finalist." What an amazing book. I cannot believe all the important information, I learned about by reading this book. Who controls the news? That the government offers a limited version of what really occurs, to protect the government and their friends. That companies can alter the truth of safety news, that goes out to the public. Wow, Crash Lane News covers issues that the regular media swerves around, as they make no effort to discover the real story. Why the weather information reporting is so very important to travelers to prevent road accidents. This book is a great revelation, to give a traveler all the information they need on how to not, become involved in a crash. Knowledge is power. Know that transportation accidents are caused by severe weather. Anyone who wants to travel more safely should purchase this book.

If you worry about your safety on the road, Crash Lane News will serve as your bible. It’s not just a self-help book, it’s a highly informative book that will give you a clear picture of the accidents that plague the roads of New York as well as fabrication of the data by the media. The book provides clear insights into the violations that can land you a ticket or worse, get you involved in an accident. For example, among the 15 violations that cause accidents are: Improper lane change, Driving under the influence, and Improper passing etc. The book manages to make the reader aware of the dangers of the road and identify risks for drivers. As drivers, we are hardly concerned about factors like weather, natural hazards, and the geography. We are more concerned with what is ahead of us, what is driving by us, and whether we are driving in speed limit. This shortsightedness is also a major cause or road hazards accidents. Crash Lane News stands out in this aspect because it makes you aware of such factors that seemingly don’t matter, but in actuality are crucial as you travel the roads. Weather, most of all, has been termed as a threatening force to road traffic. However, the FMCSA and the law enforcements fail to notify drivers about weather hazards, and as a result, drivers fail to make adequate preparations. Most of the crashes are blamed on vehicles and drivers are left at fault. If accurate information is provided to the public, most crashes caused by weather conditions can be avoided. Chapter 5, “Travelers should know Typhoons Are Hurricanes”, inform the drivers of the disasters that typhoons can cause and the type of prevention that is necessary in such conditions. Readers who worry about their safety in such conditions will be delighted with the thoroughness this chapter goes into, not only to provide details but also give readers safety directions. Although published in 2015, the book will stay relevant for years to come. The credit goes to the in-depth approach the author has used to consider every vehicle that graces the roads of U.S. and all the information is well cited, giving it complete authenticity and credibility. The sheer number of charts and facts and figures make it worthy a read, although not all information will be up every reader’s alley. The Crash Table for example, lists almost every state in U.S. and the number of actual crashes and accidents that took place. The in-depth table is highly useful since one cannot get the same kind of info from news channels or media reports. You can download the charts in the book with the provided links to the website as well. With many anecdotes from citizens of U.S and their real life experience, this makes a great read for any person who wants solutions for road safety. It is only a matter of time when drivers and traffic authorities will understand the impact of Crash Lane News.

Crash lane News I have not found any other book ideal for the travelers than the crash Lane New. The book contains facts that other sources fail to report about all the locations that you may wish to travel. The authorities of the data used in the book are irrefutable as they have been sourced from trusted sources such as the Federal communications Commission’s (FCC). Chapter four was the most enlightening for me as it addresses some of the facts that relates to the use of Smartphone in relation to safety and security. The chapter will provide strategies that you can use to protect personal data while traveling.

Crash Lane News I found the book resourceful especially when it comes to the expression of facts. The books should be part and parcel of every traveler as it assists one to keep safe and also plan for a travel more effectively. Chapter 7 has explained the issue of tornadoes exhaustively. The book also includes the weather and travel reports. The occurrence of most of the tornadoes is detected ahead of time but the main challenge is the communication of the same. It is advisable not to travel if a report from a trusted source prohibits people from travelling to a particular location. The book provides some of the important facts about tornado which have been sourced from WWW. NOAA.gov. The reports presented in the book will guide the traveler on the signs to look for while travelling.

Crash lane News The book is quite resourceful as it will introduce you to some of the information that is given little weight despite being of utmost importance to a traveler. In chapter 3, the author introduces us to one of the preventable incidence that caused damage due to lack of proper communication. Typhoon Nabi is a weather event that causes a lot of damage when it occurs. Some of the Nation affected by these phenomena includes Japan, Philippines and South Korea. According a NASA article, lack of disaster preparedness is the major cause of death and destruction. The disaster was detected long ahead of time but the communication. The book will introduces you to the various global locations that are prone to environmental disaster including the times it is likely to occur. That is the main reason why every individual should consider getting a copy of the book.

This was an extraordinarily good book. It really helped me to direct my attention towards the current issues of travel like the weather, transportation-types, how travelers can travel safer and suggestions regarding travelers’ full safety and having awareness of the destination and the surroundings. Great important information was shared into this book especially about the real life experiences and information about tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, and blizzards etc. I personally was impressed by multiple authentic interviews; with The Wireless Association public relations officer, NASA, The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration / The National Weather Service, The National Insurance Crime Bureau Director, True Mileage's CEO, Auto Club's Northern California, Nevada, and Utah, Public Relations Officer that all are truly helpful in a great way in creating and improving awareness about continually occurring travel issues. This book is very inspirational and thought-provoking. Author has put a lot of efforts in writing and explaining the suggestions and helpful information a traveler can use and be aware of. Also, I found the chapters about the “About the Department of State and Federal Communications commission Information for travelers”, “ A Brief look at James Michener’s popularity” and “Know about Tornadoes” very interesting and will definitely help me to understand and predict the issues that may occur while traveling. I am really delighted to get through this book. The author of this book has researched a lot about real life experiences of what happened previously with travelers. This book genuinely caters all the people who travel a lot or currently planning to travel. Through following this guide, I am very encouraged to know how it will be a tremendous help for my traveling plans related to safety and security. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking for ways of getting full guidance and complete traveler's checklist in a short time. The writer has used many statistics in the form of graphs, charts, tables and symbols to make it easy for a reader to understand about the critical information about vehicle inspection, traveler’s rights, travel behavior, vehicle-meter know-how, unsafe driving conditions, driver impairment, driver awareness, vehicle maintenance, driver health, accident records, security, and 15 unsafe driving violations. It also highlighted the winter season and the months leading in and out of the winter have a higher amount of crashes as compared to other times of the years. It really gave me an awesome time-spent while reading it. Best references have been mentioned in it that gives you real confidence about the authenticity of this fabulous book. Author of this wonderful book deserves a big round-of-applause as a lot of great strength and huge efforts have been put by the writer in researching, collecting and then compiling these phenomenal details about traveling and the core issues that travelers are getting through and how to make them better. I am thinking very deeply and seriously after getting through this lengthy excellent guide to follow the best content of this book and plan my trips accordingly keeping in mind all the safety conditions.

Loved the book! It contains info regarding traveling for very little money and has easy to follow instructions. What I enjoyed about this book is the author will not only take you virtually by the hand and easily guide you through the steps to getting on your way, but will also teach you things about having a great attitude and how to budget your money for your trip. Witty, entertaining travel adventure story, punctuated with thoughtful observations and reflections in interviews. Really enjoyed this realistic look at people of more mature years staking out an adventure and making it happen. As someone who has also come to terms with a glitchy leg, and learned that I can still go, but how to effectively use cafes, transit and scenic resting spots to my advantage. Found much of the information around preparation for the trip useful. On the basis of this book I will definitely purchase their next travel book.

Crash Lane News Book review Chapter 1: A Traveler should know who Controls the News This book exposes the travelers to the facts that one should consider about the nation they are travelling to. This is mainly due to the fact that most governments are keen to protect the companies and lobbyist who supports them. Some of the laws that are passed or amended by the governments are aimed at protecting their supporters. The government usually monitors the information released to the public where they mainly focus on the release of good news as opposed to the release of bad news. The chapter is interesting in that it provides the purpose of the Crash Lane News which includes making an effort to discover the truth behind an incident which other media centers fails to investigate. The Crash Lane News thus acts as a source of truth for the citizens of the United States and Travelers. The Crash Lane News seeks to alter the falsehood that is usually reported by other media in an effort to protect the government. The chapter exposes how the government and private companies manipulate data for their own benefits. Some of the data that are usually manipulated includes; healthcare, death rates, weather, nations security and safety data. I find the chapter quite informative and exciting to read due to the in-depth information that it provides. Chapter 2: Nations and Language The chapter deals with the effect that language have on the meaning of a word. As one word is being translated from one language to the other, the original and intended meaning may be altered. This is the main reason why a traveler must acknowledge this fact and understand that some phrases may be confusing or misunderstood when translated to another language. The chapter uses clear illustrations to explain the manner in which a word or phrase may differ when translated. It is important that a traveler is able to learn the language of a place in developing the safety plan for travelling. The hazards associated to travelling should be considered before traveling. The traveler should be on the lookout for the weather condition and the traffic density as most of the accidents on road are caused by severe weather conditions. The Crash Lane News is the best solution for traveler when it comes to access to information about the place they are travelling which assists them to keep safe. Most of the government agencies do not release the correct information with regards to accidents rates. Chapter 3: Introduction to CrashLane News.com In this chapter you will be introduced to CrashLaneNews.com which is responsible promoting and advertising the book. The benefits offered by the website includes download and update functionalities.

The book facilitates the planning process for the passengers, drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists to help them keep safe.

Travelling and staying safe during travels are two very crucial things to consider. It is always important to know the times and weather conditions appropriate to travel. Crash Lane News has dealt extensively with when to visit areas that have histories of hurricane and tornadoes and other harsh. The book was written primarily based on interviews with the several weather monitoring organizations such as NOAA, NWS and other people who have survived or experienced this adverse weather condition. Reading this book has made me realise that smartphones are built not only for making calls and surfing the net but also serves as a Weather Emergency Alert (WEA) to caution us about weather emergencies. In their interviews, Crash Lane News, based on statistical data cited New England, Massachusset, Connecticut, Worcester, North and South Carolina and other close vicinities as areas that have been hit by tornadoes and hurricanes in the past and stand the chance of experiencing them again in the future. They stated that tornadoes and hurricanes normally occur during late summers or early spring fall. The book also touched on what to do when one gets caught up in an unpredictable outburst of tornadoes or Hurricanes. Crash Lane news has been able to state in this book, the average expectancy period for tornadoes; 10 to 15 years for major tornadoes and 50 to 60 years for category 3 tornadoes. The have been able to educate us on how to monitor the possibility of occurrence at a location using the NOAA radio, car and weather radio and other proven means. A lesson I have learnt after reading this book is not to travel to tornadoes prone areas at night. This is because you might not know the direction its coming from and may run into it instead of seeking shelter at a better location. It is an ordeal I will never pray for anybody. This book has a lot of data and demographical reports to back their findings and reports. Crash Lane News has done a good job on this book and I can say they conducted a quality research to produce this piece. I give them five stars their efforts and I recommend it not to only travelers but to everybody as they book is educative as well.

Great information.If you are traveling in the late summer or early fall, particularly watch for hurricanes if you are out on Cape Cod, which is a famous tourist destination. Also watch for a hurricane warning if on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Be aware that for certain popular tourist destinations there are also certain issues in those areas that a visitor may not be aware of but are a concern. This is something to know in order to plan and make sure to evacuate at the right time. For that area visitors are dependent upon ferries for transportation from the island to the mainland. Make sure to avoid being stranded, because a hurricane for that time of year is a possibility.

Crash lane News is a most read book for travelers, it can also be referred as “The travelers Bible” or the traveler’s companion. A Traveler Should Know Who Controls the News Cash lane News, a national indie excellence award winner has always been a master piece that educate and enlighten the public and the highway travelers that hits the road all the time about the possible danger that they could encounter on their ways as result of ignorance, such dangers are Heavy duty vehicles that is bigger than they are, Weather, traffic etc. What this book does is to enlighten you and also educate you on all the factors that makes the road unsafe and infers a solution on how to remain safe while plying that road.

Another aspect of been safe as a traveler is to study the rules and regulation that governs the country that you are traveling to, Just like crash lane News book said that many countries make or laydown policies that will favor them and their citizens, so it is very important for you to take out one month and study about the policies that are applicable to travelers or tourist so that you can adjust. Meaning and language Travelers should understand that language varies over time, and some phrases are going to be misunderstood or totally confusing. A traveler should also know that languages vary, and being able to describe things accurately or learn about safety situations beforehand by knowing the language is an important addition to a safety plan. Being able to communicate to others while traveling about hazards that may affect a route ahead has a major impact on whether a trip will be safe. Travelers Should Know Typhoons Are Hurricanes Crash lane News also talked about travelers knowing about the natural disasters a place or country that they are embarking to travel to have or are prone to and know the time and season they happen. The book also makes key points about how travelers in the United States do not consider weather, geography, and natural hazards (like volcanoes) when traveling, particularly on Hawaii and through the Deep South. With that in mind, the content is stacked with references to the best websites and apps. This is where Crash Lane News excel in assisting the traveler as it promised it would in the book few pages.

This is an important weather event due to its describable damage, as well as how it affected the United States interests in Philippines, Japan, and South Korea. A survivor’s account of Typhoon Nabi is included after the NASA article.
