To avoid serious injury and fatal accidents, all drivers must do their part to combat drowsy driving and stay awake behind the wheel, and the following tips can save lives.

The focus four on construction sites

Do you work in the construction industry in Pennsylvania? Perhaps you have a family member or a friend who is employed as a construction worker. Either way, you will know the level of danger that is faced on construction job sites.
