Dangerous auto defects affect up to 1M Hyundai vehicles

The national "click it or ticket" campaign reminds drivers to buckle up. Research shows that seat belts save thousands of lives each year, and many Pennsylvania drivers diligently use them just like many others around the country. What happens when you cannot count on your seat belt to work even when you use it? The scary thing is that almost one million Hyundai owners are experiencing this fear right now due to a recent recall for failing seat belts. Auto defects in vehicles' basic safety features pose a threat to the safety and lives of drivers and should be dealt with as quickly as possible.

Nursing home neglect can easily cross over into abuse

The last thing parents want to hear is that their baby's rattle poses a threat to their safety, or a choking hazard.

3 face criminal charges for nursing home neglect
