The new owners of the Pawtucket Red Sox hosted a walking tour Thursday of the proposed site for a new stadium in Providence. The owners want to move the team from Pawtucket, but there are questions about their plan.
The new owners group wants to build a 10-thousand seat baseball stadium, on a piece of former highway land near downtown Providence. Some of that land was set aside for a public park. But the owners say it’s ideal for a stadium because of its central location, close to amenities and public transit.
Triple A is out with a study that should be a wake-up call for those who drive while drowsy. The problem of sleepy driving is more prevalent than you might realize.
A study on sleepy driving commissioned by Triple ‘A’ finds that 28 percent of motorists reported being so tired in the past month they had a hard time keeping their eyes open. Motorists between the ages of 19 and 24 were the most likely to report driving drowsy. Elderly motorists and those between the ages of 16 and 18 were least likely to drive drowsy.
