Think about it, Do it

I'm sharing this commercial because I avidly believe in it's message.  I hope it leads you to think about life and your family and driving safety.




Some driving safety suggestions:

1.  Slow down in construction zones.  
There are workers on the road and their life is precious.

2.  Discourage passengers to help.
 Encourage passengers to have fun but be safe.  I drive with teenagers in my car quite often.  They love to open the door while the vehicle is moving.  Be honest with them and explain why this is dangerous.  Recently, I told one of them why this made me so agitated and they stopped acting a mess.

3.  Buckle up.
Yes, it's the law, but it also saves lives.  I know quite a few people who disagree with me, but I've seen the statistics and I've experienced the loss.  It does save lives.

4. Move over for emergency vehicles.  
They are either going to a medical emergency or leaving one and if you or your family member was in that vehicle you'd want everyone to move.  Seconds matter.

5.  Pay attention.
Do not text and drive.  If you're tired pull over.  
The great thing about technology is we all have apps that can take care of texting.  I know that my commute to work takes at least 30 minutes.  I can get a lot of work done in 30 minutes especially correspondance but resist the urge to text and drive.  I just downloaded a new app.  It's called Voice and I can text, email, update Facebook, and tweet all with my voice.

I know that these are all tips that you've read or heard but it only takes one mistake to end a life.  I do pray that God protect your steps and your ways.  Thank you for taking the time to read this post!

  1. It's awesome you took the time to write about this. It is my biggest pet peeve to see people blatently disregarding their well being by texting while driving or not wearing a seatbelt.It's not difficult to wear the seatbelt.

    Just wanted to let you know I threw your link on my most recent blog post. Hopefully that will get a few extra people to your page this weekend.

  2. I hate to see people texting and driving! I have the urge to honk at them, but I'm afraid I'll just distract them more. I'm a firm believer in seat belts too...they save lives!

    1. They totally save lives. I have two friends that would probably be with us if they had wore their seat belts.

  7. I think texting why driving is especially important. I had a friend get into a car accident because of that and I personally have gotten into a car accident while talking on the phone. It's important to pay attention for sure, great reminder and post!

    1. Really important, but to be honest, I caught myself doing it today at a stop sign. The shame. I called myself a hypocrite and put the phone away.
