Many Ohio drivers and passengers have seen the signs on the backs of trucks asking, "How's my driving?" with a phone number for motorists to call if it is less than stellar.

The question some may ask is whether people with bad driving records should be allowed to keep their licenses.
Many Ohio residents simply do not get enough sleep. With all of the demands of work, family and friends, it can seem like there is no time to feel rested.

They arrive at scenes of car accidents, fires and other events in which people need their help and rely on them to take care for them. Often, this is what happens, but sometimes, emergency responders become the victims.
