Businesses of all sizes in Pennsylvania struggle with liquidity. This is especially true for companies that sell a product as opposed to a service. Products are assets, but they do not bring in cash until they are sold. If they are sold on credit, then they do not bring in cash until the other company settles their debts. It comes as no surprise then that many companies turn to business loans to make ends meet or cover temporary gaps in the budget.

In the last few years, many states—including Maryland, New Jersey and New York—have been cracking down harder on drivers using cellphones while behind the wheel.

When driving in Pennsylvania, it is common to see seniors behind the wheel. According to the CDC, in 2016, there were 42 million licensed drivers over the age of 65 in America.

However, as people age, they face a higher likelihood of dying in the event of a motor vehicle accident. In fact, in 2016, 7,400 adults over 65 were killed in motor vehicle accidents.
