What is the national minimum drinking age act?

You probably already know that the legal drinking age in Connecticut is 21, and perhaps you know that the same limit applies in all 50 states. The federal regulation that set the minimum drinking age at 21 nationwide may be more recent than you realize, however. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, the National Minimum Drink Age Act has only been in effect for 34 years after it passed in 1984. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act not only made it illegal for minors to purchase alcoholic beverages, but it also made it illegal for them to possess alcohol in public. Nevertheless, almost one quarter, 9.3 million or 24.3 percent, of Americans age 12 to 20 reported drinking alcohol during the previous month on the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

Winter weather advisories herald a season of slipping

Connecticut residents know that as fall leaves and winter comes in, bad weather starts to creep in alongside it. There can be ice, hail, rain, or snow. Bad weather like this easily contributes to dangerous conditions, and people going outside should be aware of the risks.

Drive carefully during snowy January through March in Connecticut

Driving in winter precipitation can be challenging. Residents of Connecticut must use extra care when traveling while snow blankets the ground. From January through March, this state sees snowfall averages of 9.3 inches to 12.3 inches per month with the highest totals normally falling in January.

Will my dog go to quarantine if it bites someone?

If your dog bites someone in Connecticut, it is a scary situation for everyone. You hold the liability for the accident. According to the Connecticut General Assembly, the victim does not have to prove you were negligent or that your dog had previously aggression issues. While you may face a lawsuit because of what happened, you may also wonder what will happen to your dog.

The biggest hazards of parking lots in winter

Connecticut winters can be unforgiving in terms of ice and snow. Between the chilly temperatures and the rush of people out and about getting their holiday shopping done, you should be aware of several of the biggest hazards that you could run into in a parking lot this season.

Crashes mar holiday festivities

Residents in Connecticut should be able to focus on the warmth and joy that the holiday season is meant to bring every year. This should include the ability to trust that they and their loved ones can be kept safe when on the roads, whether simply going to and from work or traveling to a holiday event or gathering to be with family.  Unfortunately, this is not something that people can count on.
