Message Monday - Go for your personal best - Zero Fatalities

8-1 message mondayWith Olympic mania taking over the lives of many sports lovers, the competition challenges us all to do our best to help our team, whatever that team may be. Picture those closest to you in your life as your team. Are you doing your best to be the champion parent, employee, boss and, of course, driver?

Give the task of driving your personal best. Set your goal to Zero – Zero Fatalities. Think that goal sounds out of reach? If every driver would follow these five simple rules, the chance that we would all make back to our team each day improves greatly. 

  1. Drive the speed limit
  2. Wear your seat belt – every seat, every time
  3. Never drive if you’ve been drinking or are under the influence of drugs
  4. Rest before driving if you’re tired
  5. Give your full attention to the task of driving.

What are you doing to support your home team? Never give up on the goal of Zero -
