I had to go across town today, and that meant driving through numerous work, utility, and construction zones. I was dismayed at the number of drivers who ignored signs to slow down, reduce speed, or even be conscious of the work and workers around them. Even the threat of “fines doubled” does not deter most drivers.
With the increased driving distractions we tend to have these days, it makes even more sense to be considerate of those who put their lives in jeopardy working on the roads. PLEASE be kind and pay attention to the work and reduce speed signs. You never know whose father or brother or husband – or wife, mother, daughter – you’ll be passing and possibly sparing their lives in the long run. Isn’t that worth the few more seconds to get to your destination?
