The Tri-Cities is growing every day, which means more construction zones, larger buildings, an increase in residents and busier streets.
Therefore please be aware of your own schedule for the day. I am 17 with no speeding tickets and I'd like to keep it that way.
If you know you have a full day or have appointments to go to, get a head start, slow down and drive safe.
If you're late to an activity five minutes more of safe driving won't hurt! No one likes to be tailgated or rushed -- including me -- and road rage won't help.
I know Christmas is just around the corner and everyone is rushing to get that perfect gift but bad weather is just ahead as well. Take your time, be safe for yourself and others and everything will go a lot more smoother.
