March #SOLC17 Day 21
I spend a great deal of time in the car driving on expressways. My daily work commute, weekend activities, and visits to my mom involve a lot of back and forth between the city and the suburbs.
More than ever, I am starting to feel like I am tempting fate with each trip. How can it be that so many drivers have forgotten the rules of the road? Are texting and surfing on phones more important than being aware of the vehicles around you?
When I pull up alongside a car and see a person looking down at their phone, I usually toot my horn to bring them back to the task at hand – DRIVING!
I realize that people have places to go and things to do. However, is their destination more important than mine? Isn’t it a priority to arrive in one piece? In the last couple of years, I have been rear-ended twice. Both times the driver behind me was looking at his phone.
In a world where multi-tasking is routine, it is important to remember that some things need our full attention, and one of those is – DRIVING!
