Roadside Chat - Be a leader, not a speeder
- aggressive, always wanting to beat the person next to you?
- a tailgater, following that “slower” vehicle ahead of you too closely?
- weaving in and out of traffic to get ahead?
- running red lights that might slow you down?
Be a true leader by showing those around you that you care for your safety and theirs. Watch your speed, calm down and get where you’re going safely.
