Defensive Driving Tips



    A Green traffic light does not mean Go 

    Green means that it's legal to go; it doesn't mean that it's safe to go.

    If you're the first one stopped at at a red light, and the light turns green you better look before going. A few years ago, a local teenager did not look, and she died a few seconds later. She was the first car at a red light, and when it turned green, she darted straight ahead, and right into the path of a eighteen wheeler that was running its red light.

    A short while later, I passed by going in the other direction.  I'll never forget that morning.  The police and ambulance had sheets up over her car.  She was 17 and on her way to high school.
    So, look before you go. Look left, then proceed into the intersection, look right, then proceed across.
