A Louisville woman who lost her partner of more than a decade and father of her two children to a drunk driver is sharing the family's pain upon learning that the woman who was responsible for the fatal crash was recently arrested on DUI charges.
We all know that distracted driving continues to be a safety issue in this country. About one-fourth of all fatalities on our nation's roads involve a distracted driver. When we hear about "distracted driving," most of us picture people talking on their phones or texting with their friends. However, there are far more distractions, and they can be just as dangerous.
No one expects to learn that their cosmetics contain asbestos. However, one congressman has raised concerns that some cosmetic products marketed to teens and young women contain the dangerous substance that can cause mesothelioma and other types of cancer.
These days, all you hear about asbestos is how dangerous it is, and with good reason. It can lead to an aggressive and often fatal cancer known as mesothelioma. Even in less drastic cases, it leads to serious respiratory issues. It's been banned for a reason, and it's not something to take lightly.
Sometimes it seems like you cannot drive anywhere in Louisville without running into a construction zone. Driving through a construction zone without other traffic can often be a bit nerve wracking, but can it be extremely dangerous when you throw in a few hundred, or thousand, other drivers who maybe do not drive as defensively as you do.
