Clinton, MD Homes for Sale

This past weekend's home showings took my Buyer and I to Clinton, MD to see several properties.  This 4 bedroom, Split Foyer style home was completely renovated and listed for $299,900.  The interior of the home showed well.  However, my Buyer didn't like the back yard.  She was completely "spooked out".  It had a creek running through the property and this old ugly barn/shed.  The back yard also had weeds and many soft spots.  Experience tells me there are drainage issues in that yard and the potential for snakes to crawl around.  Well, that was definitely a show stopper!  Our search for a home continues...…...

Distracted Driving Is Dangerous!

I'm sharing this information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) website.  Distracted driving is dangerous, claiming 3,477 lives in 2015 alone. NHTSA leads the national effort to save lives by preventing this dangerous behavior. Get the facts, get involved, and help us keep America’s roads safe.

Famous Last Words....SMH

 Get Involved: Help Stop Distracted Driving

 

We can all play a part in the fight to save lives by ending distracted driving.

Teens

Teens can be the best messengers with their peers, so we encourage them to speak up when they see a friend driving while distracted, to have their friends sign a pledge to never drive distracted, to become involved in their local Students Against Destructive Decisions chapter, and to share messages on social media that remind their friends, family, and neighbors not to make the deadly choice to drive distracted.

Parents

Parents first have to lead by example—by never driving distracted—as well as have a talk with their young driver about distraction and all of the responsibilities that come with driving. Have everyone in the family sign the pledge to commit to distraction-free driving. Remind your teen driver that in States with graduated driver licensing (GDL), a violation of distracted-driving laws could mean a delayed or suspended license.

Educators and Employers

Educators and employers can play a part, too. Spread the word at your school or workplace about the dangers of distracted driving. Ask your students to commit to distraction-free driving or set a company policy on distracted driving.

Make Your Voice Heard

If you feel strongly about distracted driving, be a voice in your community by supporting local laws, speaking out at community meetings, and highlighting the dangers of distracted driving on social media and in your local op-ed pages.
