Driving without distractions: How to avoid them

Cleveland area drivers must remain alert when they are in the driver’s seat. They need to be able to spot hazards, make split-second decisions and use the right driving behaviors to avoid them. When they become distracted, they may never see the vehicle in front, or at least not in time to hit the brakes. These types of crashes often cause life-threatening injuries, such as fractures, internal hemorrhaging, brain damage and spinal cord trauma. There is also a higher risk of death. 

Court to decide if college concussion lawsuit can continue

They named Notre Dame and the NCAA as defendants and claimed that these institutions displayed reckless disregard for the safety of football players by not educating and protecting players from concussions.
