Dad jumps out of car to save boy, gets traffic tickets It’s things like this that give cops a bad rap. A New Jersey man whose car rolled over a cliff after he jumped out to save his son from falling over the edge was slapped with $110 in traffic tickets Thursday. Frank Roder, 38, of Winifield Park, took his son Aidan to the river to feed ducks after school. Just before he finished parking his Jeep, the boy jumped out of the car and started running toward the edge of the 35-foot cliff nearby, Fox News reported.traffic ticket lawyers “I saw him running towards this log… I just envisioned him like, hopping over it to go to the water,” Roder told New Jersey 101.5 radio. “And once you hopped over it was straight down. And I just panicked and jumped out after him.” Roder caught his son just feet before the edge of the cliff, Fox News reported. The two then turned to see the jeep roll straight over the edge into the river below. Union Country police arrived on the scene and a crane pulled the car out of the water. A cop gave Roder two tickets — one for failing to produce the insurance card, which was somewhere in the drowned car, and the other for failing to use his emergency break, Fox News reported. The tickets were for $50 and $60. Roder told Fox News he was shocked. He said the cop told him that if he had just taken five seconds to apply the brake this never would have happened. “I say, ‘Really? And if I did and my boy stepped over the edge and fell instead of the Jeep, then were would I be?’ He says, ‘Jail, for child endangerment,’” Roder told Fox News. Roder said he actually thought he did put the car in park. He said he grabbed the windshield wiper switch thinking it was the shifter, which is on the steering wheel in his car. He was driving his wife’s car that day, he told 101.5 radio. Roder will appear in municipal court May 30 where he may get forebearance on the tickets. Union County Police Chief Daniel Vaniska told Fox News his officers have some discretion about when and when not to write a ticket, and admitted in this case, “It probably could have gone either way.”speeding tickets

New York State — NY State Police troopers handed out more than 1,900 speeding tickets to New York Thruway drivers during a weeklong August 2012 safe-driving campaign. “Operation Summer Brake” was created by the New York State Police to help prevent reckless driving behaviors and to stress the importance of highway driving laws, according to a state Thruway Authority news release Wednesday. “The busy summer travel season has ended, but ‘Operation Summer Brake’ did its job by heightening motorists’ awareness of safe driving in work zones, by ticketing speeders, and aggressive and distracted drivers, and by getting many intoxicated drivers off the roads,” said Thomas Madison, the organization’s executive director, in a statement issued to the press. New York’s state troopers issue more than 900,000 tickets a year, (wow!) even though they total only 6 percent of the state’s law enforcement officers, according to the release. Troopers issue approximately 55 percent of speeding tickets and 47 percent of seat-belt and child-seat law violations, and they make 30 percent of DWI arrests. So slow down out there! New York State Police Troop T Sgt. Thomas Ferritto said in a statement released to the press, that the campaign offered a chance to inform drivers about enforcement efforts across the state of New York. “We are particularly pleased to have the chance to educate motorists about the ‘move over law’ and protect maintenance workers, tow-truck operators and state troopers,” he said.

Tips From our Plumber: How to Fix a Running Toilet

Tips From our Plumber: How to Fix a Running Toilet

Besides being a noise nuisance, a running toilet can quickly add to your water bill. The fix is easy, quick and will be something you will most likely need to do on a regular basis. Learning how to fix it will eliminate unnecessary water charges and knowing how a toilet works will enable you to make small fixes on your own, while leaving the more challenging fixes to your Chandler plumber. fixing a running toilet

How It Works

When you push down on the flush handle of a toilet, a rod connected to the handle lifts a ball or a flapper in the tank. This action will open the drain at the bottom of the tank and empty the tank and bowl. As the suction of the water empting from the tank down to the bowl clears the bowl, it also forces the flapper or ball back into place.

While this is happening there is also a float that rises and falls with the level of water within the tank. When the float reaches a low point, it opens the water supply inlet valve, which lets more water into the tank. The tank and bowl are refilled by the water entering through the inlet valve. Once the float reaches a high point again, the water inlet valve is closed. It is through a multitude of issues that can cause a toilet to continue to use water.

How to Fix It

In many cases, the water level is not correct and in effort to correct it, the toilet continues to run water through the tank and into the bowl. Often, it can be fixed with bending the float rod down. This will cause there to be less water in the tank.

Another common problem is that the flapper or ball did not get replaced securely. Any gap will cause a leakage, making the toilet use water constantly. This is fixed by moving the flapper or the ball back into the correct place. In older units, the flapper or ball may also be deteriorated. Meaning you will need to replace it, if you are unsure how to replace it call your Chandler plumber for assistance. toilet schema

Finally, the chain connecting the rod to the flapper or ball may be too tight and not allowing the hole to be completely covered. You are able to fix this by removing the S hook from its current chain link and allowing the chain to be looser. Be careful not to allow for too much slack, or else the toilet won’t flush.

Follow the above tips to save yourself from high water bills and a running toilet. If you have tried these strategies and your toilet is still constantly using water, you should call your Chandler plumber for assistance. Contact our plumber, today!
