    Do you have Backup Log jobs set up? Redundant skills are crucial.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    The logs there are likely transaction logs, and they are required for the database to run. Normally, space in these files would be marked for re-use after a log backup happens. If not, then something else is holding these log records there (open transaction, replication log reader job failed, loss of connectivity to a mirror database, et al.). Easiest thing to look for would be the backup jobs as Thrasymachus mentioned, and make sure they are not hitting errors.
