Auto Club Group (AAA)

AAAWashington, D.C. – Nearly 83 percent of older drivers report never speaking to a family member or physician about their safe driving ability, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

Of the small percentage of families who do have the often difficult conversation, 15 percent do so after a crash or traffic infraction has occurred- which could be too late. Due to their fragility, older drivers are at greater risk of death and injury if involved in a crash.

Whitney Johns: The Man in the Jacket & Jesus, Our Advocate

 

SpiritualitySan Diego, CA – Yesterday, I was off from work, so my husband and I took the trolley to downtown San Diego. We both own a car, and from where we live, it takes about fifteen minutes to get downtown by car. San Diego also has a pretty great public transit system, and you can take buses or trolleys to get just about anywhere. From where we live, it takes about forty-five minutes to get downtown by trolley.

Fifteen minutes by car. Forty-five minutes by trolley. We made the obvious decision and took the trolley.
