Once upon a time, a police officer was riding back to his station after a 12-hour shift. It was close to 7pm, the end of a long and hot day. As he rode down a busy street on his motorcycle, he noticed another motorcycle approaching from the opposite direction, at a high rate of speed. The policeman made a U-turn, activated his lights and siren, and pulled the speeding motorcyclist over.
The cold winter months are finally behind us, as we begin to enjoy longer days and warmer nights. Trees and flowers are replacing ice and snow as a new season starts. Spring is a time for new beginnings.
Dear Santa, our holiday wish list is really important. We know how very busy you are, but please read carefully and even share some of our wishes with your elves.
Once upon another November, I was almost killed in a car crash. I will never call my experience an “accident”. Another driver decided to drive too fast for the conditions on a wet November day. As a result of that decision, his large truck slid from his oncoming lane into my car and almost killed me. I learned a lot from that experience; here are some of my insights.
I am a retired police officer. On a rainy fall day in 1999, I was almost killed when a large, oncoming box truck crossed into my lane and crashed into my police car head-on. This was no accident; this collision was the result of a driver’s decision to not pay attention.
