Time to Change

When most people describe life-changing events, they say that everything moves in slow motion. But in truth, it all passes in the blink of an eye. In one moment, life is just going by as usual, but within seconds, things can spontaneously change. A brief glance at a text could mean the end for anyone, even an experienced driver. Because you can’t predict the actions that will unfold from your choice. Driving is not a one-person activity; you share the roads with millions of others, and you cannot predict what others are about to do. Your attention does not need to be on your phone, your passenger(s), or your radio; it needs to be on the road and the environment that surrounds it. Eliminate distractions from your driving experience by avoiding situations that could take your eyes off the road. If you need to accomplish tasks at the moment and there is no other choice, try to pull over or ask a passenger to help you out. If you are feeling drowsy, trust yourself to make the right decision and save lives by taking time to rest. The time you take to prevent an accident due to distractions is more to add to your life.
