Roads are the lifelines of civilization.
Roads are the arteries that transport through lives and means by which we move from place to place and make those transitions in life.
Roads represent more than just a path from point A to point B.
They represent a journey, an experience, and the opportunity to learn something new along the way.
We don’t think about how many people’s lives depend on the roads we drive on every day.
We don’t think about how many businesses rely on trucks to deliver their goods.
Or how many families are able to vacation?
And we certainly don’t think about how many people would be in trouble if there were no roads at all.
Let’s be clear: without roads, none of these things would exist, and without roads, we’d all be a lot worse off than we are now.
But the road safety is equally important!
