There are two reasons why driver’s get tickets. They are the same two reasons why driver’s are involved in traffic accidents.
1. You are in a hurry. 2. You are not paying attention.
It is really that simple. We are always late for something. We have seventeen things going on inside of our car. Yesterday I saw a guy turning from Brentwood Blvd to Manchester Rd. He was taking a sip from his coffee with one hand, and holding his cell phone to his ear with the other. Did he have a third hand steering the car?
Everyone in Brentwood has seen a speed limit sign like the one shown above, but do we really pay attention to the sign. Why is the speed limit 20 mph on our residential streets? Because that is a safe speed. It allows us to back out of our driveways safely and to play with our kids without fear of harm. We are all responsible for the safety of our streets in Brentwood. Let’s take our time, and pay attention. Be safe out there!
