Another car plowed into a procession of funeral cars last week because the driver wasn’t paying attention or they were just in too much of a hurry to care. The incident occurred near Cincinnati, Ohio near the intersection of MKL Boulevard and High Street.
The driver told the officers that he didn’t notice the procession of funeral cars when he drove through the intersection. He plowed into a silver car that had a purple flag prominently displayed on the hood. One person involved in the incident suffered some minor injuries.
Is it really that hard to notice when cars are in the intersection? It shouldn’t be so difficult to see cars coming if you are an observant driver. In an effort to reduce the number of crashes with funeral cars, here are two tips on how to be a more observant driver:
• Always look around. I don’t mean turn your head, but use your mirrors and peripheral vision so you know what’s going on around you and what’s coming up.
• Stay alert. Get off the cell phone and put away any other distraction that takes your attention away from driving.
Now take those tips and use them so we don’t make it any more difficult on mourners trying to say goodbye to their loved ones.
