Texting & Driving
I wanted to do a different post and share with people that follow my blog. May is motorcycle awareness month, nationally. I am advocate about riding motorcycles. (Yes I have a social life) The main reason of this blog is about safety and many of my blogs are either protecting your home in some way or securing it. Well today’s blog is about security. Not to you, but to other people on the road. Every day we are in the hustle and bustle of business, family, entertainment, or just the fact when can I get a free moment to myself. This blog may shock you in the end but it will leave you something to think about. So let’s begin.
Our daily morning activities for a lot of people start with one of three things. Getting the children ready for school or their daily activities. Checking emails and social media pages such as “Facebook” and lastly preparing ourselves ready for work. This is true. Believe me in this. (Check yourself tomorrow.) For some may not have kids it changes a bit, I get it. Now, we are heading out the door got the clients or boss on phone wondering whats going on about the deadlines or projects. Dropping off the kids, (you on the phone), maybe the friend text you about hey, lets get together tomorrow evening for dinner or drinks. And yes the last, you have a relative still at the house. Text you where is the —- whatever.. Now again this blog is not about what you do or to scare you..But in the last 45 minutes you have probably been distracted maybe 3 times from the road. This is what I want you think about.
How many times you been on cellular device going to work, dropping the kids off or you got your cell phone tracking the distance when you run. I’m not here to say disband the phone. We use it for security and music. My point is are you on the phone from just a walk to a drive where you are distracted.? There is a point you need to say stop and be your self. Back when cellphones cost like $2.00 per minute we rarely used them. There was no smart phones nor texting. We waited til we were able to sit and talk without distractions. So lets take the pledge. For the entire month of May no texting and driving. Take the pledge with me and in June lets see how you did.
In conclusion. Do you want to be the one that was one the phone and did not see some one. And lastly, if this blog is not a mind memory of people that are lost then do a re-read.. I want to thank my great friend, Steve Ammerman for contributions to this blog.
