A Sanitation Worker in Pennsylvania helped save lives with his quick thinking. According to the news website Lehigh Valley Live, on September 19th, a car made a sharp turn and cut off traffic on a busy road in Stockertown, Pa., causing at least two cars to crash into a garbage truck. Thankfully for the safety of other drivers on the road, the driver of the garbage truck made the quick decision to veer into the median to avoid smashing into cars which had stopped abruptly. That quick decision caused the truck to roll over and the garbage truck driver to suffer a cut arm and head injury while the other drivers walked away unharmed.

As a lawyer who has worked closely with Sanitation Workers for more than 20 years, I know that this story is not an uncommon one. Many Sanitation Workers face a unique set of challenges and dangers every day. Heroic acts like this occur every day!
