Check the back seat of your car before you get in and drive off


Sharing a message I received from a friend in Mumbai.

“This incident happened a few days ago. My friend was at a cafe in Mumbai and had given her car to the valet for parking. After dinner she collected her car and was driving back home when she thought she heard someone breathe. She had the presence of mind not to turn around and instead drove on till she reached a traffic signal where she saw a cop. The cops were conducting the alcohol check drive. She stopped her car and got out and requested the cops to check the back seat of the car. They found a man with a knife. Apparently they had got access from the valet people”

Never going to get into the car without checking the back seat that’s for sure! Please make sure we share this message with friends and family

What safety means to me


For me safety is very personal. I worry about the safety of my son when he goes to school, catches the bus or walks to the basketball court. I worry about my parents when they drive on our crazy roads or when they cross the roads to go to the bank. There is danger lurking everywhere. The only aspect I can control is safety at home. I am sure I am not alone in this. How can I work to make the environment around me safe? I have come to realize that to be safe i also have to care about every persons safety, not just my sons or my parents. In these first steps I question myself; Am i a safe driver? Do I care about every individual on the road?

Improving our lives via safety


Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my new blog! This is just an introductory post so I’ll keep it short and sweet.

I decided to start a blog because I want to share my thoughts about how awareness can improve our lives and reduce the risks we encounter everyday.

Over the next few months I plan to be writing and sharing posts and photographs about everyday safety.

That’s it for now! If you’d like to be kept updated with my posts “Like” this post or subscribe to my blog.
