Slow It Down!
Slow It Down!
I just recently was taking a quiet drive in the country along one of the many farm & market roads of Texas when I was passed going up a hill mind you. The individual in a bronze suv that was in much too hurry for their own good came within a whisker of colliding head on with another vehicle a white suv that I saw the top of at the crest of the hill. Quickly glancing behind me to be sure no one else was behind me I immediately slammed on my brakes. Thankfully for all involved the collision did not happen, the white suv saw the speeder and reacted in time. I then called the local HPD and gave as much info as I could so a cruiser could pull over this person before they bring harm to not only other motorists but themselves. I guess what I am trying to say is be aware of the conditions you are in and understand that the other vehicle may not be aware of you and use caution and plain old common sense. If you feel you are late, do as I do, have all your time pieces set 15 minutes ahead of the actual time. You most likely will never be late again. And on those very rare occasions you may happen to be running late regardless of the precausion, you have ample time to contact whomever needs to know.
We have but 1 life on this big blue/green marble, and so enjoy it while you can. Be safe in all you do, someone needs you to be there for them.
