Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

WordPress Photo Challenge: Careful


Sticking with a trend here, when I saw this week’s photo challenge I knew what I had to show you.

Be careful.

Be careful.

In the eleven years that I’ve worked with the Truck Safety Coalition I’ve learned a lot about big trucks. But perhaps the most important thing I’ve learned is that as a driver in a passenger car we all need to stay vigilant. Put your phones away. Stay focused.

Don’t do stupid things like cut in front of trucks, pass on the right side of trucks, or take very long to pass them on the left. Don’t tailgate them, they can’t see you back there, and you can’t see ahead. Stay as far away from big trucks as you can. And try not to be the last car in a line of cars stopped in traffic.

My message this week is the same as it is every single day.

Be careful around big trucks.

Dangerous things.

Dangerous things.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Good reminder, Dawn. I hate looking into my rear view mirror and seeing a big ole grill camped there!


  2. That challenge had your name on it, Dawn.


  3. Must admit I had a few nasty words at a truck today – full of gravel with the tail gate down – as it went round the corner gravel poured out the back. Luckily I was stayed far enough back fearing that would happen and I was right !
