Drive Safely

Thought I would take this time,
After getting into my very first car accident yesterday,
To remind us all:
Winter driving is harder,
But doesn't have to be dangerous.
Please let's all drive slowly, carefully.
And in case the worst does happen:
Please be buckled up, carry a cell phone,
And things to keep you warm in the car.
These were all lifesavers for me.
Not a serious accident -
Car into telephone post -
Airbag hurt me more than the collision -
But it is still rattling,
Shook me up,
And hopefully will make me
A better driver.
I hope no one else has to learn
The hard way -
Driving nervously isn't good,
But neither is becoming too comfortable.
Be safe, and God bless.
