(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?)

NORTH BETHESDA, Md. — Authorities say one person has died after a commercial charter bus carrying parents and children fell 45 feet off a skyramp of the Washington beltway and landed below along Interstate 270.
A Prince George’s County police officer driving to work on Tuesday struck and killed a mail handler as the handler tried to cross a road in the Landover area, authorities said.

(I would suggest that the the Maryland State Police investigate this accident and not the Prince George’s County Police. We do not want to automatically assume the officer was at fault but all one has to do is drive to the grocery store to see public safety vehicles and private cars with public safety vanity plates taking unacceptable risks. This, I believe, is general knowledge. We owe it to the dead man’s family to make absolutely sure what happened in this crash. )

A crash this afternoon east of Bridgeville has left a man dead and 5 injured. State Police say 26 year old Abigail Carmean of Greenwood failed to stop for a stop sign on Chaplin’s Chapel Road and collided with a car driven by a 58 year old Georgetown man, who died in the crash
WGMD, as always, has the traffic story:
(You MAY KILL SOMEONE if you PERSIST in gliding through stop signs. Stop means stop and look BOTH WAYS BEFORE PROCEEDING. This was NOT an accident. It was a fatal collision that was probably preventable had the responsible driver STOPPED at the STOP sign.
Marylanders, how many examples of unsafe driving consequences do we need to change our behavior?)
