Falls are a number one cause of injury amongst workers and the elderly. However, you don't have to be working or and elderly person in a nursing home to suffer a slip-and-fall accident injury. Even the most average person can be victim when they enter a premise in which the property is unsafe and it can quickly cause injury.
In the old days, truckers would stop and use payphones when they needed to get in touch with co-workers or loved ones. When they were on the road, they were essentially out of contact for hours at a time. They did use radios to talk to other truck drivers, but part of the reason for their stops was so that they could have phone access -- along with gas, food and other essentials.
