Here are 5 things you should know.
1. There’s a really good reason to obey 25mph speed limits in neighborhoods: a person is about 70 percent more likely to be killed if they’re struck by a vehicle traveling at 30 mph versus 25 mph.
There’s a lot of research out there about this, and the risks definitely change a bit depending on the person’s age and physical condition. But on average, you have a near-100% chance of surviving a vehicle striking you at 25 mph, and only about a 20% chance of walking away ok as the car nears 40 mph.
2. You can unsubscribe from junk mail!
Junk mails are constant, unwanted, and wasteful. There are a few websites that you can use to quickly opt out of receiving these mailings. This includes the phone book too!
To get an image of what you are receiving in the mail for a given day you can subscribe to Informed Delivery. https://informeddelivery.usps.com/box/pages/intro/start.action
3. You can enable digital receipts in the CVS app so you don’t get those 2 feet receipts.
Once you enable in the app, they will no longer give you a paper receipt in-store, but will instead tell you that your receipt will be emailed to you.
4. You can use one-time credit card numbers to keep your real credit card information safe from data breaches.
Something like 400 million identities were stolen in the last 18 months. While you can’t always keep your personal/shipping details out of reach for retail database hackers, you can keep your credit card number from getting out there. Bank of America, Citi, and Privacy.com all offer options for temporary and one-time credit card number usage.
5. You can opt out of ad customization.
