(We don’t know what happened other than a pedestrian was killed. Imagine living a wonderful life. You are 73 years old. One day while you are going out to the curb to check your mail, WHAM! You’re dead. The driver of the car has to live with the guilt the rest of her life. Making things much worse of course is that we are in the Christmas season.
Perhaps this is a good time for everyone to make the commitment to drive safely. Drive to arrive – alive. Drive to be conscious of the safety of those around you.
Th bad-driving pandemic that plagues our state will never subside UNLESS each of us makes a conscious decision to change our driving behavior. There are too many Marylanders driving as though they are immortal even when six-hundred die in Maryland every year. Countless animals are killed, people are injured.
Stop at stop signs and red lights out of respect for the law and the safety of others.
End aggressive behaviors that make our highways dangerous.
Do not drink and drive.
Set an EXAMPLE for others this holiday season. It may be the greatest gift you can give. Fewer dead and injured during the holidays is a great idea. You think?)
