I was thinking the other day about how much we depend on each other out on the roads. So many collisions are really nothing to do with what we did or didn't do. They happen because the other person wasn't looking, was doing something else, or was somehow impaired.
It really is a great example of the social contract we have with each other. That we really do take on a responsibility when we start out on the road. That other people's families are really in our protection.
We need to each understand this and do our best to respect and treasure this trust. That we think only about driving when we drive. We need to ensure that we have our focus on the road.
We all can buy insurance to protect us when we don't hold up our end. We also can buy additional coverages to protect us when we are hit by those less responsible.
Take a second and think about the reliance you have on other drivers. Then make sure you hold up your end.
