When has following the laws of driving expired? Are we so above the law that we no longer need to follow the rules?
What is going on America? In this past week I have seen more cars running a red light, than I care to mention. Is it just me or have the driving rules flew out the window?
Today a jet flew past me on the freeway, oh it was just a red corvette flying on the freeway with speeds exceeding over 100 mph. All we heard was the sound and whatever it was it was moving fast. The sound barrier was broken tonight! I have seen several incidences today involving vehicles, car crashes, heavy police presence, ramp closures/road blocks with search lights and officers with flashlights pursuing a suspect, red light runners, police issuing tickets and patrol units everywhere.
Wherever these individuals needed to be, they should have allowed enough time to travel and arrive safely. As a parent we try our best to protect our children at all costs. These individuals have made a conscious choice to knowingly run a red light and compromise the safety of themselves and the lives of others. We hear tragedy after tragedy of innocent families that have been struck and killed by a red light runner or individual who choose to drive at excessive speeds. It only takes a few seconds to a minute to wait for the light to change or a few extra minutes to arrive at your destination. Think about the risk you are taking because of the choice you made to speed or run a red light. Too many innocent people suffer at the hands of a risk taker. When will it end?
