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.
