Now, with drunk driving making up one-third of all traffic-related deaths, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is asking that the legal blood-alcohol limit be lowered to .05. […]
No parent wants to wake up to a phone call in the middle of the night. Often those calls mean bad news. And with teenagers exhibiting dangerous behaviors now more than ever out on the road, more parents may be getting those horrific calls. It was reported by the Institute for Highway Safety that 11 […]
