While the delightful smell of barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs still sifts through the air on weekends and plenty of people are still flocking to the beaches, it won’t be too long before everyone starts making way for pumpkin picking and apple gathering. These signs also mean that students and teachers will soon return to school.
As the new school year winds up, most people have a suitable plan for getting through the morning. Children are ready with their new notebooks, college students promise that this semester will be the one where they get a 4.0 and teachers are excited for their new lesson plans. However, within a month or so, many start to lose focus, and their morning routines become crammed with little odds and ends. As a result, everyone is racing to school, and serious or even fatal car crashes can occur as a result.
Ultimately, vehicles on the road need to slow down, and this is particularly necessary when they drive through school zones and residential areas. The morning frenzy is responsible for injuring and killing individuals, including children, every year, so people really need to take the time to think about what they are doing. Cameras to catch people who have violated speeding rules in school zones are starting to pop up, but that doesn’t mean everyone is going to drive more slowly. To drive slower in the morning, individuals need to take the time to craft a routine and think about what they are doing.
