This week’s blog is more heartfelt then any of the others I’ve writing in the past. Today I’m writing about the importance of driving safe. With the winter weather upon us, everyone on the road must be extra careful. Roads can be icey or snow covered. It can be windy or rainy. These weather conditions mixed with everyone seeming to be in a constant state of hurry can be a deadly combination.  I’m sure everyone can admit being careless one way or another and the frustration traffic causes. After a long day at work you just want to get home or maybe you just left your house much later than expected. These careless mistakes can lead to accidents some even fatal.

There are many contributing factors to any accident such as speeding, losing control, improper lane change, signaling, drug and alcohol influence ect..  Accidents happen every day. We can all say we have driven by an accident. This only shows traffic accidents happen more frequently then you actually sit to think.

On November 19, 2016, I lost a friend due to a fatal accident. Today I am writing this in tears as I am thinking of a million ways to console a family that won’t have their child, brother and friend to hug, kiss and laugh with another time. Our memories will last a lifetime. An accident can happen to anyone, anywhere and anytime. You can never say you are ready for one and even know what to expect. Accidents can have a huge effect on your life or the people around you. I am writing this blog as I hope that you will keep this in mind the next time you drive. If you have been in an accident or know anyone who has and may need help. We are here to answer any questions.
