JUST DRIVE! There is nothing more important than your life and the life of those you love so why are we making EVERYTHING else more important?
Why have we gotten to the point of having to keep our brains and our hands busy every single moment? What happened to the days of getting in your car and just listening to the radio? We can't even be at a red light without getting bored anymore. Why do we feel the need to be engaged in something every second of every day?
Hundreds of thousands of people are dying every year because we are "too bored" to JUST DRIVE. And each one of us thinks that we are that "special" person that can handle it....we can look at our phone or put our make-up on or settle disputes between our kids in the back seat......but none of us have that right. We don't have that ability or that right. We don't have the right to take the chance with other people's lives. We must get in the mind set that when we are behind the wheel EVERY person on the road is our responsiblity. There is nothing that can't wait but if you feel that there is then PULL OVER and handle it.
Please be a good example to your children who are watching you behind the wheel. Use the time to teach them to JUST DRIVE. We can never get that split second back when we make the decision to take our attention off the road. That split second can mean the difference between life and death for yourself, your child, your mother, father, brother, sister, husband or wife.
There is nothing more important than your life and the life of those your love so please JUST DRIVE.
