GINTA – Spring is here; let’s make it brighter yet with safety and kindness
WE’RE FINALLY MOVING INTO SPRING. It’s been a tug-of-war as of late, with snowy mornings and frosty windshields yet again — some strong and cold winds, too — but the days are getting brilliantly sunny and long enough to be able to fit enough in one with time to spare.
The sun is coaxing out more people, and there seem to be many more cars on the road because there’s much to do around here. The latter calls for some extra reminders for safety.
On my way around town, I often see drivers throwing their eyes toward their laps while waiting at red lights, then checking to see if the traffic is moving.
Some people do it while driving, absolutely convinced that they can safely handle the rapid gaze switch between screen and road. If history and stats are any lesson, we know by now that such habits spell disaster.
