NORWICH – From the eyes of a law enforcement officer, safe driving often rides in tandem with good character. It’s a combination not everybody strives for, but it’s a crucial mix for everyone who risks their life each day on the road.
Tuesday, New York state Trooper Jamison Tefft told a classroom full of driver’s education students at Norwich High School to be humble in the driver’s seat, especially when crossing paths with law enforcement.
“The only thing you can control is yourself,” said Tefft, who is stationed at the Norwich barracks. “Be polite, be courteous, and be honest.”
Tefft believes the most important assets any driver can possess are an understanding of the direct effect their actions have on others, and the importance of being conscientious of each on-coming situation behind the wheel.
