Throwback Thursday: Editorial on Distracted Driving

Please enjoy our Throwback Thursday post a day late this weekend! Enjoy the weekend, everyone!

What Happens If You're Given The Wrong Rx?

Medical professionals do an awesome job keeping us safe and healthy, all while promoting good lifestyle choices.  However, they are also humans and can make mistakes just like everyone else.  This is especially true when they are working very long hours!  Unfortunately, sometimes these mistakes can lead to very serious health issues.

Winter Driving Requires a Different Kind of Technique!

You passed your PA driver's license test and are a good, safe driver. However, you might not know that there are a few factors that make winter driving a lot different than other seasons.  Here are some tips tha may be new to you and can save you and your passengers from injury in the future!  

Sharing the Road Safely: Semi Truck Drivers May Be A Risk

Cell phone use while driving is irresponsible, reckless, and a threat to the safety of the driver, their passengers, and other vehicles on the road.  Most drivers recognize these facts, however, many still choose to ignore safety laws and continue to text and talk on their cell phone while on the road.  Drivers of cars are not the only people who are guilty of not obeying the safety laws; semi-truck drivers have also been caught using their cell phones while driving.  As startling as this phenomenon seems, it is not uncommon on the highways.  As a result of this and in response to a semi-truck accident that was supposedly caused by a truck driver on his cell phone, the National Transportation Safety Board has recommended banning the use of cell phones for truckers nationwide (except for emergency purposes).   The accident, cited by the NTSB as a possible reason for cell phone bans for truckers, involved a truck driver who was talking on his phone while driving and caused an accident that killed 11 people.  Directly before the accident, the driver made a call and crossed a median on an interstate, crashing into a van carrying twelve people that were coming home from a wedding.

Much Ado About "Aggressive Dog Breeds"

Recently, Pit Bulls have been receiving a lot of negative attention due to the perceived danger of the breed.  Whether you agree or disagree with this danger, the truth of the matter is that any type of dog breed can be harmful under the wrong circumstances.  Even your neighbor's toy poodle can cause serious damage under stress!

Save the "Ice Skating" For the Rink!

Are you finding yourself slipping, skidding, and sliding on the cold, wet roads and sidewalks?  Slip and fall injuries tend to increase during the winter months, due to an uptick in bad weather, such as sleet, ice, and snow.  These falls may lead to long-lasting and/or painful injuries, such as broken bones, concussions, and loss of consciousness.  Extended damage from such an injury may include chronic pain and nerve damage. Ouch! These injuries are bad by themselves, but may also become an added burden when you have to miss work for an extended period of time.
