If you or someone you know has a young driver, then it is important to go over the necessary steps for safe driving. State Farm, United State’s top car insurance provider, teams up with the musical group The Band Perry to warn drivers of the implications of reckless driving. “Teen driver safety continues to be a major issue, and this program gives us a platform to spread the word and encourage safe driving in teens’ first years behind the wheel,” explained the members of The Band Perry. “It’s a privilege to partner with State Farm to shed light on this important issue and hopefully help save lives.”
There are a few things that as drivers, whether they have been driving legally for a month or 10 years, should consider before getting on the road. Keep eyes focused on the road and hands on the steering wheel at all times while driving. Adjust the mirrors to make sure you can see what is behind and next to you. Avoid going over the speed limit or driving too slow under the speed limit. If needed, set your GPS and/or music before going on the road. Turn off and put away your phone until you are off the road. Last, but certainly not least, make sure you wear your seat belt. For more information, please visit the Celebrate My Drive website, www.celebratemydrive.com.

If you thought holidays in Tenerife were all about nights out and cheap apartments by the beach, think again. Yes, you’ll certainly find plenty of budget accommodation and town centre hotel rooms placing revellers right in the thick of the action, but there’s a different side to Tenerife that’s worlds away from its renowned nightlife.
Just take a look at Wikipedia’s guide to Tenerife, for example. A few lines in and it’s clear that this island is something special. It’s home to a buzzing capital city, is has one of the largest carnivals in the world (apparently it’s second in popularity only to Rio), and it has a fascinating volcanic past that’s evident in its spectacular national parks and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
