    Transaction log out of hands, in this case you have to check whether transaction log backup is performed regularly.
    Also check what kind of processes, queries running on the server causing this Tr.log to grow.
    There is no use in shrinking the log if other processes are contributing a lot, by performing regular backups you can control the sizes, for the sake of recoverability it is better to take care with backup and not to put as SIMPLE recovery model.
