9 people will die from texting while driving today

Most of us in Oneida realize that distracted driving is a problem. We have seen the commercials, heard the news reports and seen celebrities plead with us not to text while driving and, fortunately, most of us have listened. Unfortunately, those that haven't are putting people at serious risk of injury and death. Though New York has outlawed texting while driving, there are many accidents that likely can be linked to distracted driving.

Pharmacy sends wrong medicine home and seriously injures child

Even though doctors still "write prescriptions" they generally don't give patients in Syracuse a written prescription from the prescription pad anymore. Rather, they send the information to the pharmacy, whether that is the pharmacy in the hospital, the doctor's office or just down the street. Once it is at the pharmacy, the patient will pick it up and take the medicine according to the doctor's directions. What happens, however, when the pharmacy makes a medication error?

Reducing speed should reduce the number of pedestrian deaths

Whether it is to better one's health, to enjoy nice weather or just to reduce the cost of transportation, there are a number of people in Herkimer County and across upstate New York who are choosing to walk instead of drive. It is undeniable that there are benefits to walking, but there are also risks, too. Pedestrian accidents can be serious and sometimes fatal. Moreover, drivers don't always pay attention to pedestrians, which puts them in even greater risk of danger.

Are tired truckers causing serious accidents?

Most people in Utica don't show up to work exhausted. There may be days here and there where someone will be a bit tired, but as the day progresses, he or she will find the energy to get through the day. Even for those people who are exhausted, their work is such that even if they dozed off on the job, they wouldn't maim or kill anyone. For truck drivers, however, the story is quite different.
