The Most Dangerous Part of a Baltimorean’s Day


You probably don’t consider it every time you get behind the wheel of your car, but driving is an awesome responsibility – to maneuver more than one ton of steel as your thoughts review to-do items, your kids bicker, and your phone dings incoming messages requires precision and care. Even if you maintain your focus flawlessly, another driver may make the traffic mistake that ends your vehicle’s life or even your own.

In honor of Drive Safely Work Week, October 1 through 5, the Maryland State Highway Administration has issued a bulletin reminding us all: “It is a frightening fact that the time Marylanders spend driving — either as part of the job or to and from work — is the most dangerous part of their day.”

So why not put on the brakes for a basic refresher in safe and practical driving?
