The hidden dangers of pool drains

This time of year, parents pay extra attention to pool safety. They make sure that their young kids know how to swim and stay safe in the pool.

Casinos want drunken gamblers, increasing risks

Wondering why the risk for pedestrians and sober drivers is so high when driving near a casino? Part of the reason is that casinos may end up over-serving their patrons. This can increase DUI accidents, which are often tragic when both parties are in motor vehicles and which can get far worse when one party is a pedestrian just trying to walk down a sidewalk or use a crosswalk.
