Justice-The Least We Can Do To Keep Kids Alive

Dear Friends in Safety,

Justice is the very least we can do to make things work in our world. Every just law is designed to benefit people - real people, including ourselves, our families, our neighbors, and all those we have not yet met.

It is easy to apply justice in living out motor vehicle laws. We simply need to obey speed limits, observe traffic signals and signs - for example, stop at each and every stop sign to look left, right, then left again to make sure the coast really is clear. We can also buckle up everyone, every trip, every time, observe safe following distance, not text or talk on cell phones, use our turn/lane-chage signals, and not drink and drive. Each and every law surrounding these driving behaviors simply calls us to do the very least we can do to keep ourselves and others safe. Again, it's all about people.

May we each do our part to put the law into practice by doing the very least we can do in bringing justice to every roadway on which we drive. The life saved may be our own, as well as that of someone else deeply loved and cherished by a family and friends, just as we each are.

And remember,
“Don’t Let the 2 Minutes You ‘Save’Be the Last 2 Minutes of Someone’s Life.” Adapted from David Townsend (Tia’s father)
