Get a Clue! Are You a Wayward Walker or Wayward Driver?
Written By: Ooh La La (Danielle Marie)
We have all experienced those slow, inconsiderate walkers who can’t seem to determine which way to go, or their cart sits in the aisle at the grocery store without moving for passers-by. There are also the dangerous wayward drivers who drive below the speed limit in the fast lane, swerving in and out of lanes or driving the center line. Be considerate of others and be aware of your surroundings. It is selfish to only think you exist on this planet. Don’t be oblivious to those around you. Show your respect for others in small daily gestures.
· Don’t be a wayward walker. This includes whether you are at the grocery store, pushing a cart in a parking lot, or blocking the entire sidewalk and not allowing bikers to pass. Avoid sudden stops in the middle of an aisle or congested areas. Oftentimes there are multiple people behind you, be aware of this and step to the side if you must stop. This includes making a phone call or texting, just move out of the way during your loss of concentration and everyone will appreciate the consideration.
· Do not be a wayward driver. Either we have driven behind these people or in the passenger seat. This situation can be the most frustrating! Unlike when walking, we can easily maneuver around the other person, but when driving we have traffic laws to follow without causing an accident and injuring others. The best place to start improving these ridiculous driving conditions should be with you. Avoid using your cell phone or giving into distractions, this will keep the roads safer with less accidents and road rage.
