Parking lots can be confusing spaces. Whether they’re empty or packed, they always seem difficult to maneuver through because they’re tight lanes with so many spaces surrounding them. On top of that, there are so many obstacles to look out for—moving vehicles, people backing out, pedestrians, and objects like carts.

This could seem like a cut and dried job, but it isn’t—there are plenty of regulations that they have to follow, like hours.

Truckers are only allowed to spend so much time on the road when they’re hauling. They have to abide by federal hours of service regulations that are intended to keep them awake behind the wheel. Let’s take a look at how much time truck drivers spend on the road.

It happened to over 155 million people in the year 2020 alone. In a single year, it happened as people accessed Microsoft accounts, joined Zoom meetings, logged into Facebook, booked Marriott and MGM Resorts rooms, traveled by Amtrak, and shopped at Home Depot. Data breaches have put the confidential information of innumerable users and consumers at risk, often when they least expect it. But data breaches are a relatively new phenomenon, and many victims are not aware of exactly what happens when personal data is exposed during a breach, or what can be done about it.

Some may argue that the scenic views of the beautiful state of South Carolina are best appreciated from the back of a motorcycle. Those who ride motorcycles, whether for practical transportation or for pure enjoyment, know that a motorcycle is more than just a way to get around.

But most people are also aware of the dangers that motorcyclists face, particularly as bikers share the roads with much larger cars, trucks, tractor-trailers, and other enclosed vehicles.
