7News Editorial: Be patient on the roads

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -In the past several weeks, KSWO has reported on several traffic collisions that have resulted in injuries, with a couple of them being fatal.

Each day, we take the convenience of driving a car for granted and forget the real impact we personally have on others when operating a two-ton, potentially lethal weapon.

We all have a fast-paced life and tend to focus more on where we are going and how fast we can get there, rather than our own safety and those with which we also share the roadway.

These traffic collisions could be dramatically reduced if we would all just be a bit more patient on the road and realize the impact our actions, or lack of attention, could have on the rest of our life and the lives of others.
