As we go about our daily lives, we don't often give much thought to the roads that get us there. Whether on our way to work or visiting the far corners of the state, roadway infrastructure is a significant factor in our safe arrival. With more and more people on the roads, and municipal maintenance budgets in decline, roadway safety is a serious concern. In fact, according to AAA, road conditions are a significant factor in about one-third of all traffic fatalities. Sometimes accidents that initially seem to be the result of driver error are in fact caused by roadway hazards.
Because motorcycles are smaller and have less protection than cars, motorcyclists often suffer serious injuries or death when they are involved in accidents with cars. Many motorcyclists are hit at intersections when drivers fail to look for motorcycles.
Everyone who is on the road has a responsibility to drive safely and take proactive measures to prevent accidents. Truckers and trucking companies who are on the road for a living are also expected to follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR). Unfortunately, many truckers and trucking companies take short cuts and cut corners in an attempt to raise profits, and that carelessness and negligence risks the safety of everyone on the road.

Between overhead power lines and underground electrical lines, most people work or live near high-voltage electricity every day. Transformers, substations and switching cabinets are extremely dangerous and if not properly secured, maintained and labeled, will pose an extreme hazard to the public and those working around them.
When natural gas or propane leaks, it only takes a small spark or even static electricity to cause a huge explosion. Sadly, because natural gas and propane are naturally colorless and odorless, many people are unaware of the danger until it's too late. Even the man-made solution (adding a rotten egg smell to the gas) does not always keep people safe.
Immediate medical needs and recovery are not the only consequences of personal injuries. Injury victims typically feel physical and financial hardships for months or years after the accident took place.
Thermal burn injuries involve exposure to flames, scalding liquids, steam or hot metals. The intense heat kills cells and damages tissues. Depending on their severity, thermal burns can be horrific. They often require extensive skin grafts, and the victim may be left with permanent scars and disfigurement.
Safe fuel system design is not limited to automobiles and airplanes. Crashworthy fuel systems must be incorporated into all-terrain vehicles as well, especially considering the foreseeable use and abuse an ATV will undergo. Bumpy trails and steep inclines make it all but certain that an ATV will overturn during its lifetime. The last thing you expect to happen is becoming soaked in gasoline as you try and dust yourself off after a minor, but predictable, mishap.
