We rely on sports so we can come together and exercise, socialize, and have fun. Most times, playing sports doesn’t lead to injuries that require medical attention, like scrapes, small bruises, and soreness.

If you’ve ever been on a long road trip and suddenly realize a few miles have passed by with you barely noticing, you’ve experienced highway hypnosis. This phenomenon, also known as automatic driving, is a contributing factor to a number of distracted driving accidents; however, it’s not discussed as often as issues like texting and driving or paying more attention to the controls inside the vehicle than what’s going on outside.

It is National Bike Month! For many bicyclists, April’s warm weather has prompted them to dust off their bikes and seek a bike tune-up at their local bike shop. While we are all eager to soak up the sunlight and get some fresh air, bikers should remember safety comes first.

The Centers for Disease Control has reported that less than half of bicyclists wear helmets. Bike wrecks have been known to lead to traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Whether you are commuting to work, riding with your family, or exercising, simply wearing a helmet can reduce your chance of death in the event a collision occurs.

Many people drive through parking lots properly and follow the rules. But some people choose to drive recklessly through parking lots because they think the rules of the road don’t apply.
