Fort Lauderdale, Florida – January 2009 – From Chalik & Chalik along with the Sun Sentinel we bring you this January 22, 2009 report of pedestrian mayhem in the sunny state of Minnie and Mickey. In this blog report, be discerning about what you read because some appears not to be accurate; the report mentions a different way a pedestrian was injured. It seems that a woman and her boyfriend were driving on or somewhere near Interstate Highway 595 while having an argument.  The boyfriend, apparently had had enough, got really mad and kicked her out of the car. She was probably just as angry, not thinking with a clear head and mad at the world allowed her emotions to take over paying attention to what was going on around her. A detective driving along on the highway must have struck her with his cruiser. She survived. Okay if you’re angry with a passenger it’s probably better to stop for gas, ask them to go into the convenience store for gum and then while they are inside drive away, leaving them safe and not so happy at the soda machine. Of course turn off your cell phone and call their mother telling them their location, so they can be picked up.

This news item does interest me because I’ve seen several news reports of this type of injury occurring of late. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports on a 27-year-old Milwaukee woman and her 29-year-old husband being arrested and recommended for homicide charges after losing control of the Ford Taurus she was driving while arguing resulting in a person’s death. The person fatally injured was riding a motorcycle. The female driver rammed a black SUV that then struck the motorcycle.  The Ford Taurus rolled three times after crashing into the SUV.

As the driver it's your responsibility to not lose control of the car.  While driving, remember to use your head before someone loses their life.
