These are the top dangers West Virginia drivers face

Annually, millions of drivers and passengers across the U.S. are injured and killed in motor vehicle accidents. With June being officially named National Safety Month, this month provides a great opportunity to discuss and raise awareness about some of the top dangers that drivers in the Fairmont area may face while driving on area roads and highways.

What information is a debt collector required to provide?

Any person contacting you claiming that you owe money on a debt is required by law to give you certain information about the debt owed. A debt collector must tell you the name of the creditor (the person/entity who is owed money), the amount of money owed to the creditor, and how you can dispute the debt or seek verification that the debt is accurate. During the initial contact, if the debt collector is unable to provide you with this information, the debt collector is required by law to send you notice in writing of this information within five days of the first contact.

Debt Collectors Aren't Above the Law

Sometimes people get behind on a bill or can't pay a debt. With the recent economic decline, this is truer than ever. When you get behind on a payment, you may be contacted by a debt collector to pursue what you owe. Unfortunately, not every debt collector follows the law and simply because you owe money to someone doesn't mean a debt collector can harass or threaten you.

Defective Takata Airbags--Possibly in Your New Car

On May 4, 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) expanded the Takata (manufacturer of airbag and airbag components in many vehicles on the road today) recalls. This expansion is projected to potentially affect almost one out of every four cars on the road today according to a June 1, 2016, report from the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.[1] According to the report and a New York Times article published June 1, 2016, "Automakers Still Selling Cars With Defective Takata Airbags,"[2] Toyota, Volkswagen, Fiat Chrysler and Mitsubishi continue to sell new vehicles with defective Takata airbags that will need to be recalled.
