Distractions come from anywhere or anything around us, as we walk our paths of this journey through life, but none more dangerous than as we drive our Vehicles, especially on the road ways today.
The way People drive today, it makes me wonder if the Registry of Motor Vehicles are handing out Licenses free of charge? Then you add in all the Technology going into the cars today, no wonder why we have a Distracted driving problem on the roads today. Distracted driving should be treated exactly like Drinking and Driving, as they both have you not paying attention to what is in front of you. So far fourteen States passed a Distracted Driver Law, why haven’t all the other States caught up to those Fourteen? Now if you look deeply into what you see and apply your Common Sense, this should be a no Brainer, but seriously we shouldn’t have to have a Law, to tell us what our Common Sense should be telling us, the fact is that we have let Technology make us all lazy within this Society. Now with most of the speed limits on the roads today being either 55 or 65 and all feel like doing 80, then add in a Cell phone in your hand, whether talking or texting, this is a recipe for diseaster. There is no argument worth arguing that you can do both, simply saying that driving at 55 plus and with a cell phone in hand, you can not focus on what is in front of you, the bottom line is you are increasing your chances of being hurt or even worse, hurting those that are around you. I have a Bluetooth speaker phone in my car and when I get in my car, it syncs up with my phone and when someone texts me, it sends an auto reply, telling the person I am driving and will get back to you later, there is nothing more important in this world, then you reaching your destination safely.
The fact is that when we get behind the wheel of a Vehicle, we forget about everything/everyone around us and think everything revolves around me. Distracted driving isn’t just having a cell phone in hand it can also be, getting behind a wheel after an argument with a loved one or close friend? Now your driving aggressively within your thoughts and not focusing on what is in front of you, there are many factors that can affect us behind the wheel and all these factors, can and will have an affect on the way we drive. Distracted driving is very serious and affects us all within this Society, if the only way to stop it is to pass a law with stiff penelties, then I am all In, so we all can be safe to walk our paths of this journey through life.
” Distracted driving is like drinking and driving, both will have you not focusing on what is in front of you”
” we all have become lazy with all this Technology, time to put it away and get back to truly being safe throughout this journey”
“To walk this journey through life, first we need to do it safely so we all can be at peace with happiness”
