We face dangers every day on the road

Besides being a constant part of our lives, vehicles are also one of the most dangerous parts of our environment. Anytime you get behind the wheel you are facing a significant amount of danger.  Drunk drivers, rowdy teens, and rampant texters all share the road with you every day.
