Staying Safe On The Road

I drive too much these days. Going to work. Picking up the kids. And going out for picnics.

I like outdoors very much and my kids share those passion with me.

That’s not strange.

I see a lot of kids drive on the streets and I wonder if they’ve ever attended a driving school here in Queens. It’s surprising, you know.

Just this evening, I saw a teen driver moving at a very fast speed with ears plugged with headphones. Yesterday was the same thing, I saw a teen wearing iPods and driving at the same time.

That’s risk. Big risk!

And these teens have parents or maybe guardians. I wonder if they ever let them attend any Best Jamaica driving school or they were just self-taught that they don’t know what they should do and what they shouldn’t do.

It doesn’t make any sense to me.

Our roads are more dangerous than ever.

I see men and women, old and young, playing with their smartphones while driving at the same time. Their minds are split between two different things and they don’t even know it. They are multi-tasking.

Even I still find it difficult to multitask while writing. Believe me, I’ve tried many times. I always fail because it just doesn’t work.

Even the experts don’t recommend multitasking because it kills the brain.

But unknown to many, they have become married to their phones that no matter what they are doing or where they are, they still want to do something on it.

That sucks.

It makes our roads less safe for everybody.

The rate of car accident deaths is rising very hard. It doesn’t look good at all.

I try to stay away from those high-risk drivers when I see them.

Staying safe just doesn’t depend on you alone. You also have to try away from those idiots. When you see them at your front, it’s better you pause for them to move far away from you or you simply switch lanes.

Doing this makes you a wise driver of course.

And as you continue to do this, you’ll find yourself avoiding troubles on the roads.

Practice. Practice. Practice.

To get good at anything, you need practice, practice and more practice.

In my teen years, I used to think many things are hard until I jumped into them.

For example, I did badly in mathematics.

I hate mathematics.

In fact, it puts me to sleep.

And I loathe anyone who likes it because I hate it so much.

The reason why I hate it so much is because I couldn’t get good at it.

I tried everything I could. But I’m always pushing myself. So, I stopped trying to become a good mathematician.

Six months ago, I changed my mind about mathematics. I decided to learn and get good at it again.

I made the commitment to practice mathematics every day.

As if it was waiting for me to change my mind, I become so good at solving mathematics problems. I never thought I could solve those problems.

What’s the magic?

Practice.

I’ve found that the harder I practice, the easier it becomes.

So is driving.

I don’t feel so comfortable behind the wheels. My mind is always racing as if it a F1 sport car.

But over the past few weeks, things have completely changed. I’m now better at driving.

I’ll like to thank my driving school in Queens.

They’ve been supportive over the past few weeks.

But the practice was the key.

Without practice, there’s no way I’ll become a perfect driver.

Just yesterday, I took my girlfriend for shopping.

Bought some nice clothes for her and she likes them.

She enjoyed the ride back home. Something we haven’t been doing for a long time.

Driving enable us to share more moments together. That helps our bond grow stronger and stronger every single day. I want to keep improving my driving skills with practice

I’m reaching out to you, if there are skills you want to learn, make sure you’re practicing harder and harder for them.
