Study links use of prescription opioids to car accidents

The widespread use of prescription opioids has been called an epidemic, and people in New Jersey could be at increased risk when drivers abuse these drugs. A study that looked at data about fatal two-car accidents found a relationship between opioid use and motor vehicle crashes. Researchers identified which drivers were considered responsible for causing accidents and if they had prescription opioids in their bodies. Among people labeled crash initiators, they had almost twice the likelihood of testing positive for opioids compared to drivers who were not responsible for crashes.

Dog bites and the risk of infection

Adults and children in New Jersey have the basic right to expect to be in public without being subjected to attacks from dogs. Still, there are times when dangerous or vicious dogs attack people and inflict potentially serious injuries from bites. What's particularly problematic about a dog bite is the risk of infection. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics estimates that infections result from about 10 to 15 percent of dog bites.
