The road does not belong to just you (A reminder to follow the teaching of the Bible)


Daily, especially on the northeast coast many act as if the road they drive their car and motorcycle upon is their personal property. Yes, your vehicle is your property, but that is where it ends.
We live under laws and rules of the road that we must obey and follow. As Christians we are told to obey these laws and rules (Titus 3:1).
Just for a refresher course.
The double yellow lines mark different directions of traffic. You do not cross that line unless you are turning and then ONLY if no one in the opposing direction is heading toward you, even if the light has just changed.
The dashed white line is a dividing line for multiple lanes. Stay between them, unless you are switching lane, but make sure no one is in the lane you are going into; also just because there is enough room for your vehicle in an adjacent lane is not permission for you to go into it. It is there as a safety gap. Per the rules of the road for every 10 miles per hour you go you should allow 20 feet between you and the vehicle in front of you for braking purposes.
The “Yield” sign means to “yield RIGHT OF WAY” that means if someone is where you want to be you MUST allow them to go first. When a sign says for example “Right lane ends” that means those in the left lane has the right of way and you must yield this right of way to them. Once it is clear, you can then merge over to the left lane.
If you are in a forty-five mile per hour speed zone and it then reduces to thirty-five you slow down.

As Children of God, we are told in to Bible to honor these laws as referenced earlier. If you are not following them then not only are you disobeying these laws but God.
