Tomorrow is July 23rd. Vernon’s life-changing accident happened on May 23rd. So in honor of the 23rd, I’m posting a public service announcement…an important reminder to all of us, no matter how you travel.
Isn’t this a great design? I discovered this small business-with-a-message after Trevor, the owner, sent me some bumper stickers along with a donation.
Since then, I’ve ordered a couple of t-shirts as well. I wear mine with conviction because I know its a reminder we all need, especially as the streets get busier and the cars get bigger. The bigger the vehicle we are in, the safer we feel…but it makes the little guy less visible. The two-wheeled travelers are more vulnerable than ever.
Look twice. Then look again. Every rider has a valuable life and a family who loves them.
I was told by a nurse this weekend that she is seeing more motorcyclists in the surgical unit than usual. Maybe because it’s summer. Maybe the riders are being especially risky. But most likely, they just aren’t being seen. Nobody gets into an accident on purpose.
If you are interested in ordering inexpensive yet effective stickers or t-shirts from Trevor’s company, check out his website here.
As he says: His mission is not for bikers – It is about bikers.
Stay safe, everyone!
