Decisions

  Email   Print

Most everything we do in life requires some type of decision. Even getting out of bed at a certain time of day or night requires a decision. What your attitude will be upon getting out of bed and what you will wear are also regular decisions. My wife and I regularly debate such things as what to wear, what to eat and what movie to see. These decisions sometimes lead to debates which my wife always seems to win. I've yet to figure that one out, and I guess it's probably in my best interest to not figure it out or understand it.

Decisions are most often based on right and wrong decisions, like do I need to speed in order to get somewhere on time or more quickly? Most decisions lead to questions we usually ask ourselves. For example, you would want to ask yourself whether speeding to get to a ballgame or social event was worth risking your life over. Most of us would agree that it's simply not worth the risk. But there are those out there that routinely, if not on a regular basis, risk life and limb to make up a little time here and there by speeding. This begs the question, is it worth the price that could be paid by your or someone else's bad decision?

Far too many citizens will never get a second chance or opportunity to make a decision or ask a question because of a tragic fatal car crash. Committing traffic offenses is one of the most common things we as humans do in our day-to-day lives while driving. For most of us, the violations are not intentional. It's like second nature to most of us and, because we've done it for so long and gotten away with it, we normally continue the action until something stops us. Unfortunately, that something usually involves blue lights. This can serve as a temporary deterrent but, with time, tends to fade. Blue lights, traffic accidents, injury or death should never occur. As everyone knows, driving requires one's full attention at all times. Even the slightest of distractions could lead to serious injury or death.

So please make good, safe and practical decisions in your life at home and on the road. Your decision not only affects your life, but others as well.
