Although people have known about the dangers of asbestos for decades now, it is still prevalent in many structures. You can still find it in insulation, car parts and construction materials. This means that overexposure can happen even today.
When it comes to drunk driving, there is no debating the dangers that are associated with this reckless behavior. Drunk drivers place many lives in danger, and they should be held fully responsible for getting behind the wheel in an inebriated state. However, some people dismiss the risks that are associated with driving while hungover. Some drivers may be inexperienced with alcohol, not realizing that they are still too inebriated to drive, while others may tell themselves that they are no longer drunk and are capable of driving safely.
From making sure their bike is easily seen on Pennsylvania roads to choosing a strong helmet to protect their heads, motorcyclists have a lot to worry about to stay safe while riding. However, many riders are probably not aware that insects can also be a problem, perhaps even a serious one, for motorcycles and their riders. Bug encounters can range from annoying to potentially dangerous.
An accident involving a tanker truck in Bensalem Township, Pennsylvania, last Thursday sent two people to the hospital with critical injuries and required extensive repairs to an Interstate 95 off-ramp after the vehicle caught on fire.
Those who get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol place lives in danger regardless of the time of year. However, on certain occasions, it may become even more risky for someone to drive drunk. For example, when road conditions have deteriorated due to bad weather, a drunk driver may have an even higher chance of losing control of their vehicle and causing a collision. In the winter months, this is especially true in some parts of the country which see a great deal of snowfall, ice and other weather hazards.
