WLOX Editorial: Be careful and pay attention

WLOX Editorial: Be careful and pay attention

It's the unofficial last holiday travel weekend of the summer. Many of you will join the thousands of others who will hit the roads for one final summer vacation. And it's inevitable that there will be accidents and people will be hurt or killed. And many of those accidents are caused by distractions.

Simple distractions like cell phones, others in the car or even eating can lead to disaster. Please remember, when you drive, you are guiding on average, 4 thousand pounds down the road. And you already know what happens when the weight of a car hits something.

Please be careful and pay attention.  We want to see everyone back home safe next week.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
