A Mistake, and a Lesson

On the way home, without thinking, I turned left onto a one-way street (going right-to-left) when the light turned green. There was a mother & child crossing over, and while I turned wide to avoid any danger of hitting, it was a serious mistake on my part. I wasn’t “distracted” by anything. I failed to be observant.

It’s very easy to blame such mistakes on the lack of safety measures, and often many do. However, incidents like this reflect a failure in personal responsibility.

If we are proactive in our own behaviors, the need for government to take measures to offset likely dangers can be diminished. This is one way, citizen-to-citizen, we can do our best to reduce demand for government funds.
