I just have a little ornery demon that has been dying to get out and today I just have to release it.
Please when Driving DO NOT:
-talk on your cell phone (please, feel free to use a hands-free set; this is okay)
-drive with your skull candy earbuds in. (you can't hear emergency vehicles)
-drive more than 5-10 mph in a parking lot. (you will hit someone)
-drive in a snow storm without your lights on. You cannot be seen no matter what time of day it is. (I know, I drive up Parley's Canyon every day)
-drive with poor tread on your tires. You do not have to buy "winter" tires, but a good set of all-weather are wonderful for around the town driving. (your poor tread can cause accidents)
-drive on a day that you feel inadequate to operate your vehicle. If you feel the need to drive 5 mph on a day that the weather scares you, but does not necessarily require you to slow to this speed, PLEASE find someone to be your driver for the day or take public transportation. It is not worth the headache for you or anyone else on the road.
When Driving PLEASE:
-use your blinker. (in a parking lot, turning a corner, changing lanes, etc.)
-go the speed limit (unless weather/ice doesn't permit you)
-keep good wipers on your vehicle
-wipe all the snow off your ENTIRE vehicle. (this means your hood and roof and trunk. wiping off the hood means your windshield will not fog. wiping off the roof and trunk means that my windshield will not fog from the snow on your car flying onto mine.)
Okay. Demon ran away. Hopefully He won't be back for a while.
