As one of the youngest in my family, I had the privilege of witnessing the excitement of my older siblings, cousins, and recent immigrant family members as they strolled out of the DMV with their new driver’s license in hand. It is considered a big milestone for my family--- a step towards fulfilling the “American dream”. However, these precious moments, unfortunately, come at a price for some. Just as I lived through their excitement, I also am living through some of their pains. However, in December, on his way to work one day, a driver was switching lanes from the left and collided his car into my cousin’s, leaving my cousin with severe injuries to his left arm and leg. Now that I am in the process of obtaining a driver’s license myself, I can not help but think back to my cousin’s accident and the thousands that occur daily. Therefore, in my process, I have immersed myself in the importance and conversation surrounding driver’s education which I have become a big advocate for. The first is to always be aware of your surroundings. Another action you have control over is to limit your distractions. Lastly, obey all traffic laws. Overall, the tiniest change in your driving habits can make a significant difference and impact numerous lives, including yours. So let’s go out there, make safety our priority, and make a difference!
