National Stop on Red Week was a good time to raise awareness about the dangers of red light running and being aware of our own potentially risky driving habits. My mom was killed and six other people were injured when a red light runner hit them as they crossed the street.
I wrote about my mom’s sudden death, the grief I experienced and lessons I learned along the way in my book titled, Garden of Grief – Cultivating New Life After Loss. My wish is that drivers will reflect on their own driving behavior and be in the moment and focus on driving. A life can be lost in an instant when someone is distracted while driving.
