  10. Ask your co-workers mysterious questions and then scribble their answers in a notebook. Mutter something about "psychological profiles".


TIPs # 7 : Pulled Over By The Police?

Being pulled over by a police officer can be as stressful for the officer as it is for the motorist. Although the majority of people are law-abiding citizens, a police officer must still be overly cautious during all traffic stops. Here are a few tips to follow when being stopped by the police.

  1. Pull off of the road as far to the right as safely possible.
  2. Stay in your vehicle unless asked to get out.
  3. Turn on the interior light if the stop occurs at night.
  4. Keep both hands on the steering wheel and do not make sudden movements.
  5. If you are carrying a firearm, advise the officer of the weapon and its location.
  6. Advise the officer if you need to reach for your license or registration.
  7. If you are being stopped at night and you are driving alone, simply acknowledge the officer by turning on your flashers and driving at a reduced rate of speed to the nearest well lit area.

Following these simple tips will make traffic stop less stressful for everyone involved.

SHARE THIS INFO # 9 : Dry ICE & CO2 Poisoning

Remember this especially when we buy lots of ice cream during Baskin & Robbins 31st day offer!!! They normally put dry ice in your ice cream pack if you buy a lot.

A friend bought four packs of ice cream and to prevent it from melting, the seller put the dry ice amongst the ice cream. My friend put it at the back seat (not the back of the car) and he started to drive with the windows closed and the air-conditioner on (as what we all do). Soon after that, he had difficulty breathing and it was getting worse by minutes.

Luckily, he was in a traffic jam and when he almost fainted, beside him was an ambulance. He dragged himself to the ambulance and got the oxygen treatment. He was getting better on the way to the hospital.

The ambulance officer drove his car to the hospital and he had the same experience. However, before his condition worsen, he opened up the window and he can breathe easily. Only later, when my friend returned to office and told his colleagues about his story, they pointed to him that the dry ice was the problem. WHY?

Dry ice was made of CO2 and when it "melts", it becomes CO2 gas immediately without leaving any wet mark (that is why it is called dry ice).

CO2 is easier to be linked up in our blood and thus, when the dry ice sublimes into CO2 gas, it fills the car room with it along with the air con circulation and caused CO2 poisoning. So, don't put the dry ice inside your car if you are using air-conditioner with fully closed windows. You must leave the windows open for such situation.

Hope this will help to prevent any fatality just from a small negligence like this. Imagine if you have your children inside, they might be the victim.
