July 4th: Keep it Fun; Keep it Safe

Independence Day -- a Dangerous Day for Drivers

July 4th image.pngAs West Virginians plan their travel, picnics, parties, and fireworks, the most essential concern that may be neglected is a focus on safety. It is unfortunate, but the 4th of July is often linked to boat, whitewater rafting and car accidents, drowsy or drunk driving, speeding, and recklessness on our highways.

Fracking Wastewater Trucks involved in Rear End Collision

Rear end collisions are one of the most common types of accidents, and this type of impact can do serious damage to both the vehicles, the drivers, and the passengers inside.

In most cases, the driver of the trailing car is at fault.

Problems with Water Quality Contamination near Gas and Oil Drilling Sites

The oil and gas industry in West Virginia was significant in our past and is vital to our future.

This natural gas resurgence could also be leveraged for the chemical and manufacturing industry in our state and exported globally in its liquefied form (LNG). Oil and gas fever is burning again.
