Re: "Motorcycle passed vehicle just before hitting three Surrey teens, killing one," the Now, online.
On Wednesday night, many students at Princess Margaret Secondary went to bed saddened by the fact that an accident had taken the life of a schoolmate and injured two others.
Perhaps some even began to realize that there are consequences to the actions they take and the choices they make.
Nobody is immortal - we can die or be seriously injured at any time. Is tuning out your surroundings, talking on your phone, listening to music and texting really all that important?
The other day, a young female with buds stuck in both ears was busy looking down texting as she approached a crosswalk - she continued against the red light and never even looked up. And just after the deadly accident, I had to take a detour to turn off 72nd Avenue and went through the Kwantlen parking lot - young people wandered through the lot in the middle of the drive lanes, paying no attention whatsoever to cars, plugged into God knows what.
Time to wake up and be aware of your surroundings.
