No More Snakes On A Plane: New Rules For Emotional Support Animals

Picture this: you're walking down the aisle in an airplane and when you find your seat, there's a turkey sitting next to it. Or a pig. Or a monkey. It sounds like a comedy routine, but it isn't. In the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in people having 'emotional support animals', particularly when traveling on airplanes. While any step towards improving mental health is applauded, there have been many incidents involving emotional support animals on airplanes that really don't belong there. We can't blame these untrained animals for acting the way animals act, but we can question the laws that allow them on board. With new regulations from the US Department of Transport, things are about to change. We discuss these changes below, and whether they are for the better or the worse.

Dashcam videos capture a lot of close calls, but this has got to be one of the most unique.

YouTuber Paul Ellis uploaded footage today of a hot air balloon traveling dangerously close to Marine Drive in Southport, England. You can see the balloon lose height and creep way too close for comfort toward busy traffic.

Luckily for Paul, the balloon operators and everyone else on the road—the hot air balloon manages to escape any collision with vehicles.

This tale is a perfect example of why drivers should invest in a dashcam. Hot air balloon collision will sound pretty suspicious your insurance company.
