This morning at a local YMCA I noticed a lesson that can be applied to our driving behaviors.
An older gentleman held the door open for a troop of kids participating in summer camp. The first 10 or so walked through without saying a word. Then, one young boy - probably 7 years-old - said "thank you." Every child who followed him thanked the man for holding the door. That young boy had set courtesy in motion with two simple words - thank you.
Opportunities present themselves every day to start a wave of courtesy on roadways throughout the world. What do these opportunities look like?
They look like stopping at stop signs, using turn signals, obeying speed limits, and setting cell phones aside to concentrate on the task at hand - driving.
What drives you to courtesy behind the wheel? Your examples are welcome.
