Stay Safe On the Roads This Fall
I am a retired police officer. On a rainy fall day in 1999, I was almost killed when a large, oncoming 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.
The summer days give way to the crisp mornings of another school year. We look back to the last months of cookouts and ball games, as well as the aftermath of a hurricane called Irene, and recall how we all stood together in our care and concern. Let’s all approach this new school year with a decision to be safe by making good decisions for ourselves and insisting that our young drivers do too.
As we all continue to drive into this fall season, let’s all dedicate ourselves to paying attention on the leaf-filled, wet and sometimes darkening roads, for our children and ourselves.
