When we get behind the wheel, we are taking on a responsibility that is rarely unmatched. Driving has become a major part of day to day life for many of us and this responsibility is often taken for granted. Distractions while driving are many and we must all do our part to keep our eyes on the road and "Just Drive."

The days of waiting for information is quickly becoming part of our past and in redesigning our website we took this concept into consideration. By adding an RSS Feed to our website, we have helped to bridge the gap between the information we wish to distribute and the community that we serve. We have worked with local news agencies to ensure that our new practices help to make their jobs easier as well and thank them for their cooperation throughout our "beta" test.
