The seasons change so fast, and before you know it, the year is almost over! The next couple months are one of the busiest in Southwest Florida, with season upon us and multiple holidays/family gatherings taking place, such as Thanksgiving, Black Friday shopping and Christmas!
This is the most important time of the year to be a defensive driver, because there are more people driving on the road. Whether you driving in a car, taking a troll downtown, or taking the dog for a walk. Drivers, using your turning signal, for example, is an appropriate way of showing driver courtesy. Knowing the 4-way stop order is another common courtesy characteristic that shows every driver is paying attention, thus, preventing tragic accidents.
This goes for pedestrians as well. Drivers, watch out for pedestrians, be extra cautious, and let them cross through the cross-walk at their given times. In the state of Florida, you are required to yield wight-of-way to pedestrians at all crosswalks. Watch out for your children at busy street settings, prevent littering from the car…these are ways in which we care for other people’s wellbeing, whether we know them or not. Maybe if we concentrated more on looking out for others, we would live in a much safer environment.
