A driver often makes multiple turns and lane changes in a single trip. Most in North Carolina go to great lengths to ensure that their actions are not the cause of an accident while making these maneuvers.

Though it may be easy to take certain traffic signs for granted, all signs are placed with the intention of protecting drivers and other users of roadways.

The crash happened during the afternoon hours of a day in mid-May. According to reports, the driver of a pickup truck failed to obey a stop sign.

North Carolina man accused of murder during robbery

When a crime occurs, there is an understandable desire for answers. Unfortunately, these answers may take a significant amount of time to uncover. Despite this, a man in North Carolina was recently arrested in connection to an alleged murder just hours after the deceased victim's body was discovered.

The incident that led to the man's arrest reportedly happened just after 5 a.m. on a day in early May. Police reportedly responded to the home of a 78-year-old woman after receiving reports of an alarm at the residence.

Family law proceeding of divorce more common in certain areas

Research shows that between 40% and 50% of marital unions end in divorce throughout the United States, including North Carolina. Unfortunately, where a person lives might contribute to his or her likelihood of going through the family law proceeding of divorce. Researchers recently determined that states with fewer instances of divorce have some things in common.

First, divorce is less likely for those who live in an area that does not breed high amounts of stress. The reason for this is that when couples are stressed about family drama, finances or work, this can end up harming their relationships. In the same manner, states where people had less debt related to student loans are more likely to have lower rates of divorce.
