    your social security number, pin numbers and
  • Always pay by credit card never send cash.
  • Know with whom you are doing business.
  • Use only secure networks for payment.
  • Keep copies of all documents such as receipts and
    credit card statements.
  • Check credit card and bank statements regularly
    for accuracy or unauthorized purchases

Traffic Tips
  • CELL PHONES - Philadelphia has enacted an
    ordinance that prohibits talking, dialing or
    texting on a handheld device while driving a
    motor vehicle. It also prohibits these activities
    while on a bicycle, scooter, in-line skates or
    skateboard. Hands-Free Devices are permitted.
  • BUCKLE UP - It's the law. Besides, safety belts
    and restraint systems have saved countless lives.
    Make a habit of it, and be sure to check and make
    sure everyone else in your vehicle is buckled up
    as well. Don't forget to use the required safety
    seating for your children. Age/size-appropriate
    car seats and booster seats are available in many
    locations in many price ranges,
  • DON'T DRIVE IMPAIRED - Although this seems very
    obvious, the unfortunate truth is that many
    people are driving under the influence of not
    just alcohol, but other mind or mood altering
    substances, including medications. The
    unnecessary tragedies caused by DUI related
    crashes can be avoided by two simple means
    having a designated driver, or taking a cab.
