NYC DOT Signage Reminder

The NYC Department of Transportation understands that “Reckless Driving Kills” and has gone to the trouble
and expense of reminding their drivers every day. It’s common practice with companies and corporations to remind their personnel of the importance of safety everyday.  The truth is, we all need reminding every day as it’s our responsibility as adults to act in a safe way every day.  Enough with ‘man-children’ who are enabled to act irresponsibly, and this goes for women too who do the same.  We need to find a way to reach people to teach them what is expected of their behavior so that they don’t put themselves or others at risk.

Tragedy after tragedy after tragedy.  We’re all sorry when it’s someone close that’s effected, it’s takes no effort to understand what others are going through when they loose someone on the roads, yet the number of incidents just numbs us to the point of acceptance.  That, of course, is an unacceptable attitude.  We need to instill safe behaviors early so they become the habits and norms of our citizens, and be reminded to ‘be safe’ every day from those who care.

Welcome to Know The Fundamentals blog. Our mission is to find avenues for adults to teach children the fundamentals of safety, so they may have a lifetime free of tragic events. By instilling safe attitudes at a younger age, when they begin to drive, have families, or just live, they can pass on their knowledge through their example.

As an adult city dweller, you know that you have to keep alert to navigate the city safely. With years of experience on how to judge distance and speed, you're probably very good at it. Now imagine a child, who has little to no experience walking around our busy streets. Sounds dangerous, doesn't it? Take the time to teach them well, and if you're not a parent and don't have children, set a good example to those you see. Your example will probably save someone's life, at some point in their life.

Sidewalks, curbs, crosswalks, bicycles, vehicles, seniors, adults, parents and children, all interacting in real time. But children do not know the rules, so take the time to teach them well, and in the process enhance the quality of your relationship by engaging them through open communication about all sorts of topics. Know, and teach, the fundamentals. The challenge is yours, and that of a healthy community.

Teach your children the basics of safety and life, to give them the foundation for a positive, healthy and safe future. You love them, right? They deserve it, correct?

By teaching your child the basics of safety, you'll find that they will interact with others in a more considerate way. This will in turn help them become successful adults. With children lies the opportunity to help them with their foundation of knowledge. If you wait too long, the consequences may be too much to bear.
