4 safety tips for cycling on rural roads

Now that summer is in full swing in the Billings area, you may be spending more time cycling down the rural roads and enjoying the scenery. However, as with riding down any road, it is important to always be on guard and watch for cars. In fact, it is typically best to never trust a motorist to put your safety first.

Identifying the common causes of truck accidents

Truck accidents occur at an alarming rate in Montana and across the United States. People are seriously injured and killed in tractor trailer accidents more often than some may think. When people understand the common causes of truck accidents, they may be able to avoid becoming involved in an accident and could save lives in the process.

Are hands-free cellphones really safe?

If you are a Montana motorist, you know that there are currently no bans on driving while using a hand-held or hands-free cellphone. In many states across the nation, however, using a hand-held cellphone to talk, text or message while behind the wheel is against the law. A number of motorists have started using hands free cellphones in an attempt to stay in compliance with the law and continue using a cellphone while behind the wheel. These cellular devices are marketed as being safer to use than hand-held cellphones. Yet, studies show that the amount of cognitive distraction caused by using a hands-free cellphone is not considerably less than using a hand-held cellphone.

How dangerous is transvaginal mesh?

If you are a Montana woman who suffered a pelvic organ prolapse after giving birth to one of your children or because you are genetically predisposed to this condition, you likely underwent surgery to correct it. Your surgeon probably implanted transvaginal mesh as part of the procedure. Even though (s)he surely informed you of his or her intentions ahead of time and you gave your signed informed consent, that does not mean that this mesh was safe or will remain so.
