A majority of traffic slow downs occur when people are nosy. Slowing down to see what happened although they really aren’t going to render assistance nor are able to. I can accept slowing down cause the accident occurred on the same side where you are driving. I dislike and am perturbed when it is on the other side and we are delayed because of it. It is totally unacceptable behaviour and we must try our best to cease and desist from being nosy bodies.
Another cause of traffic slow downs are when we refuse to allow incoming traffic to merge due to our impatience or pigheadedness. We keep in mind that we don’t like it when we are the recipients of these traffic transgressions.
Therefore remember to be courteous to our fellow travellers and in time they will be courteous to you.
Drive safely my friends
Its been awhile since I’ve posted my observations. The road has been long and full of interesting and frustrating occurences. One of these is distracted driving. We all get distracted but one of the worse forms is driving whilst texting. Mainly texting with your head and eyes looking down instead of up and on the road. There’s no excuse for it since we have all been guilty and have been lucky not to get involved in an accident. But luck is not what you want to bet on with a 3000 pound vehicle or a multi ton truck. Having said that I won’t go into it further cause there is plenty of information out there of the disasters caused by distracted drivers.
I would make a suggestion although it is equally not a proper driving technique. If you use the above the dash or windshield car mounts you will still be able to see the road at least in your periphery. This is not a solution and is not recommended yet it is better than having your heads down.
Till next time drive safely my friends.
Today’s topic is post traffic accidents. Although traffic accidents is an ongoing topic of discussion since it affects us on a daily basis In one form or another. I would like to interject my views on the aforementioned and current subject of my ire.
First and foremost, since we have either been in or witnessed an accident in our travels, I am certain we are dumbfounded by the amount of wasted time and long traffic jams caused by distracted drivers. These nosy bodies slow traffic to a crawl for no reason of relevance but their own misguided curiosity. I am tired of being delayed and seeing delays caused by the total disregard of these people and I’m sure you are as well. I wish there was a way to ticket those involved but since that is impossible and foolish to fathom. I hope that those who read these post can convey these thoughts to their friends and family members.
Having said that I aim to and will try to impart some constructive suggestions in my post that you may find useful. For instance, as a daily driver on time constraints, I dont have time to render aid to all the traffic incidents I see. So I call the necessary agencies that can via my mobile. This is the best form of assistance for us drivers or pedestrians who cannot stop and render physical assistance.
Therefore if you are travelling and are not a part of the solution to the traffic accident keep your eyes forward and keep it moving.
Today’s topic is driving whilst tired or fatigued. We are all guilty of getting behind the wheel and forcing ourselves to stay awake in order to get home or to our next destination . This practice is as dangerous as being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Our ability to properly control and maintain the vehicle is impaired and in some instances nonexistent. I will not delve into a tirade of why this is wrong in so many ways. But will interject this statement. The purpose of our journeys are to reach our destinations safely amd expeditiously from points A to Z and eventually back to the comfort of our homes and families.
Therefore, we must take heed and pull over and take a power nap whenever we find ourselves tired or fatigued and questioning whether we should take a break and recharge. That simple and necessary act willl ensure that your are able to be in command of your vehicle and make sound decisions on the ever changing landscape before you.
Take care and stay safe my fellow travelers .
