If You Drive, Please Read This

It’s fun to drive the neighborhoods to view the outdoor Christmas decorations this time of year, no doubt. Please remember, however, to do so safely.

If you’re the one behind the wheel of said vehicle, you are still responsible for where it actually ends up. Keep your eyes on the road and stay between the lines, even if such lines are not painted on the road. Day or night.

Plenty of times I have seen a vehicle approaching in which a driver is obviously paying more attention to the decorations on his side of the road than the fact that I am getting closer in my vehicle in the other lane. At the last second or after hearing my horn blare, that vehicle jerks abruptly back over onto its half of the road, thankfully avoiding an accident.

Happy holidays. Safe holidays, as well.
