With August’s dog days upon us, be extra careful on road

I RECEIVED a call several days ago notifying me that my father had been in a serious motorcycle accident near his home in Montana. Apparently, the unusually warm 97-degree day had gotten to him and he suffered heat exhaustion and passed out. He went off the road and down a ravine, most of the way on his belly.

My father was luckier than most. He suffered a mere few broken ribs, road rash and a badly bruised face. The first responding officer on the scene told him that he had just left the scene of a similar bike accident where the driver hadn’t made it.

The western United States is experiencing record-breaking heat, and motorists there are being taken by surprise. But we in Virginia are approaching the hottest time of year as well, and commuters would be wise to prepare accordingly.

Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) Event

October 28, 2008 by · Comments Off on Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) Event 

Virginia State Police and Roanoke City Police will be conducting a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) etching event for automobile and motorcycle owners who would like to have their vehicles protected against theft on Saturday, November 1, 2008 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Target parking lot at Valley View Mall in Roanoke.

This free service is part of the Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) Program. VIN numbers will be permanently etched on the vehicle or motorcycle. Having VIN numbers marked on the vehicles steers thieves away. VIN etching takes away any potential profit thieves may make. VIN etching is simple, fast, safe and won’t mar the look of the vehicle or motorcycle. In addition to the etching, officers will be on hand to educate vehicle and motorcycle owners on how to prevent auto theft in their communities.

Traffic along part of Interstate 64, in Norfolk, was closed for several hours Tuesday after authorities say 90-degree heat caused the road to buckle and caused a motorcycle accident.
