Everyone is back from summer vacations and our roads will be more crowded. If every driver practices these three simple things, our roads will be a pleasure to drive:
* Be patient - allowing extra time to get where you are headed will take the stress out of driving.
* Be courteous - when stuck in traffic, allow a waiting car to get out of their driveway or merge into traffic; allow time for the car in front of you to safely park or enter traffic from a parked space.
* Be alert - drive defensively and be on the lookout for school buses and children walking. When you stay alert you keep everyone safe: yourself, your passengers, pedestrians and other drivers.
And first and foremost, PLEASE keep you cell phones, PDA's and tablets in your purse or pocket while driving. It's a very simple rule: DO NOT TEXT WHILE DRIVING. EVER. From your fellow drivers on the road and pedestrians on the street, we say Thank You.
