What are some common Nebraska traffic violation points?

The amount of points added to your Nebraska driver's license depends on the violation. Although fines for offenses vary, they share a similar cost structure. If you're cited for driving up to five mph over the speed limit, you might get a point on your driving record. Over 35 mph above the legal limit? That's four points (or more for reckless driving).

Is it better for couples to sleep separately?

Most couples in Nebraska choose to express intimacy by sharing a bed with one another. However, the New York Times reports that, according to one survey, approximately one-fourth of all couples choose to sleep separately. However, this perceived unwillingness to share is not necessarily a signal that the relationship is in trouble. Most of these couples choose to sleep apart from one another to avoid sleep disruptions that may result from a spouse's restlessness or differing sleep schedule. In fact, some couples report that their relationship is stronger and more solid because of the decision to sleep apart. In another poll, almost half of the participants, 46%, expressed a wish to try sleeping apart from their spouses.

How can you avoid construction zone accidents?

Summer is the time when the weather in Nebraska is most favorable for road construction projects. Therefore, drivers are most likely to encounter construction areas during this time of year. You may regard the modifications to your routine that road construction requires to be a minor annoyance. Nevertheless, work areas on city streets and state highways can also pose a potentially serious hazard.
