When we got home it was a good feeling. I explained to my boy that when it gets like that, slow down as much as it takes to see and get your ass to home or somewhere safe, that's when accidents happen. It only takes a millisecond. How it saddens me, I was right.
Those are words to live by for all of us, not just your son (great advice!) I'm glad you guys were able to put on some miles, and came home safely. Hopefully this will be a year of fewer fatalities.
