  • Although experts agree that driving ability begins deteriorating around the age of 55, drivers have widely differing skills. While some drivers continue to drive safely well into their older years, studies show the crash rate per mile driven rises steadily for drivers age 65 and older.

    Older drivers have fewer collisions because they drive less and at less dangerous times. However, when they are in a crash, it can be serious.

  • Holidays, bad weather and illness are a few reasons the blood supply often drops to critical levels during the winter months. But a stable supply is necessary to ensure blood is available when patients need it most.

    In honor of National Blood Donor Month, the American Red Cross invites everyone to donate blood in January.

    As a token of appreciation, all participants in January blood drives will be eligible to enter a region-wide drawing for a high-definition television worth $1,000.
