U Drive U Text U Pay And Speed Week In Clarkstown

Clarkstown PD has been participating all week in a campaign to get drivers to (imagine this) pay attention to what they are doing while behind the wheel.  I personally have seen the police chase down 3 distracted drivers this week and have been cheering for them to catch even more.  The stops I witnessed were in West Nyack, Nanuet, and New City

Let's face it - we all have a lot to do these days. But, is your life, and the lives of those on the road alongside you, worth sending a text RIGHT NOW??? If it is that important, you need to pull over, stop, put the car in Park and then text away! 

Now, starting today, the State Troopers have begun a campaign to stop speeders and aggressive drivers.  I'll be cheering that effort, too, as I have had a number of drivers swoop past me like I'm standing still and then cut me off, just barely missing my front bumper. I don't know if people are just out celebrating the spring weather, if they truly have a severe medical or personal emergency that requires them to put the rest of us at risk, or if they are just selfish and think they are the only ones on the road. Whatever their issues, I hope that the Troopers catch them and give them something else to think about! 

Anyway, think twice about speeding and aggressive driving: the fines can total up to $1,000 and 11 points on your license. Neither of which are a good thing. In one of the many safe driving classes I took while in my corporate life, one of the instructors put it very succinctly:  Is your life worth the time you save by driving aggressively vs. driving safely? (Studies indicate that you might shave 1-3 minutes off the trip - all the while risking your life and the lives of those around you, to say nothing of the stress and anxiety you put yourself under while driving like a lunatic.) 

Enjoy Speed Week and quit texting while you're driving!
