Whether young or old, every driver and passenger believes he or she will make it safely to the intended destination.

On Monday, Aug. 21, a full solar eclipse will be visible across much of the country. Even those who will not be able to see the full eclipse are gearing up to watch an event that has not occurred here in the United States for decades.

Unfortunately, Amazon is recalling several of these special glasses because they could be a potentially dangerous product.
