We already have a “no phone rule” at our dinner table, but it’s nice to see businesses encouraging people to put the phones away and talk during meals!
Part of my job is to let people know the importance of paying attention and being cautious when driving through highway work zones. This morning, I’d like to take a few moments to let you know this is National Work Zone Awareness Week.
This post is just a quick reminder to put down your cell phone and reduce your speed when driving through a work zone. People are working just a few feet away from where you’re driving, so please respect their lives by giving the road your full attention and slowing down.
At the same time, these reminders are put out there to help you, the driver. Most of the fatalities that occur in work zones are drivers or passengers in vehicles. The speed limit signs and the distracted driving laws are there for your safety, too. Here’s an interview I did, talking about this part of the safety equation: http://www.cinewsnow.com/news/local/IDOT-clearing-up-misconceptions-in-work-zone-safety-149310275.html
Thank you very much for helping to keep the roads safe for everyone!
This is something we look for – in people, in things we own, in all kinds of ways.
Granted, it doesn’t always work that way. Cars break down. Cell phone service isn’t always great. Friends can be flaky. Business associates may not always get the job done. And, on and on.
We get frustrated when things aren’t dependable. But, it’s going to happen sometimes. It’s just the way it is.
At the same time, we are blessed with 100% dependability from one source…
Your love is faithful, LORD, and even the clouds in the sky can depend on you.
So next time you’re sour on something like what I described above, just think of this and remember that God is dependable and always will be. In the end, that’s all that really matters 🙂
Have a great day.
