Question and Tip for safer roads and street

Rollin Knifley writes:
While your point is valid Billy Joe, might I suggest that while looking in the mirror we start with questions like:
  1. When I operate my motor vehicle today, will I pay attention to things that are happening past my dashboard?

  2. When I operate my motor vehicle today, will I do so in a manner that will ensure the safety of its occupants and those I share the highways with?

  3. When I operate my motor vehicle today, will I do so with patience, kindness, and courtesy to those around me? Even if the lines are long, and the lights aren\'t changing to suit my schedule.

  4. When I operate my motor vehicle today, will I take responsibility for my own actions? Just because the Police, County Judge, Magistrates, and who ever else is easy to blame aren't looking, doesn't give me the right to operate my motor vehicle in an inattentive, careless or reckless manner.
You are correct Billy Joe. The mirror is the place to start. --Rollin Knifley
