Louisville area residents understand the importance of driving safely. When a person chooses to engage in dangerous driving behavior such as texting and driving, speeding, or driving under the influence, they risk their lives along with everyone they meet along the way. A recent tragic car crash near Lexington highlights the importance of safe driving.
Vaping, or use of e-cigarettes, is a quickly growing trend in the US, but it may not be as safe as consumers like you believe. These devices do not burn tobacco like traditional cigarettes, but instead use flavored liquid, heated until vaporized, which people then inhale. Flavor cartridges often still include nicotine which is an addictive and dangerous substance. Some also include marijuana.
With spring quickly turning into summer, it is motorcycle season. It is especially appropriate, then, that May has been designated Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month by groups like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
