Don’t Text While Driving

We’re all guilty of it...texting while driving. We know it’s dangerous, but there’s just something about that “ding!” on our phones we can’t ignore. We feel we have to respond immediately, no matter where we are. Even if it’s behind the wheel. It’s not the brightest thing to do, but we do it, anyway. Unfortunately, there are consequences to our actions. Texting while driving is now a big cause of car accidents. From teens to adults, no one is immune. In a world of “I want what I want when I want and I want it now,” drivers don’t have the patience to wait until they’ve arrived at their destination, or even come to a complete stop to respond to that text message. Unfortunately, our actions have consequences. Thousands of people a year get into car accidents...Read More

MLK Holiday Tradition Turns Deadly on Miami’s Roadways

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is meant to honor a man who fought peacefully for civil rights. Unfortunately, not everybody in Miami chooses to honor the man in a peaceful and responsible manner. A dangerous trend has recently taken over South Florida every MLK Day for the last two years. Hundreds of ATV riders and motorcyclists take to the streets of South Florida to participate in a movement known as #Bikesupgunsdown, which has its roots from social media. The movement’s original intent was a way to show solidarity towards non-violence. Unfortunately, it has now become a constant parade of reckless ATV riders and motorcyclists performing wheelies and dangerous maneuvers, placing other motorists in danger. This year, it claimed the life of 20-year-old ATV rider Jose Hernandez...Read More
