Driving Is No Mindless Act



To all of those people out there who refuse to take driving seriously, here’s a challenge: Go to the Motor Vehicle Division and request a re-test of your driving skills.

If you can pass the test with a drink in your hand, a phone in your ear, texting with a phone in your hand, a dog in your lap, food in one hand and a cigarette in the other, combing your hair, shaving, putting on lipstick, or a combination of some of the above, congratulations!

If not, limit those activities to your home, keep both hands on the wheel, pay attention to the road ahead and other drivers around you like your life depends on it. It does!

You might even be able to use your turn signals to give others a clue to your intentions.
