Cruise Control warning/Employment test in Ingenuity / Fun Video...

Hi There Folks,

I wonder how many people know about this? A 36 year old female had an accident several weeks ago and Totaled her car. A resident of Kilgore, Texas she was traveling between Gladewater & Kilgore. It was raining, though not excessively, when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and literally fle through the air. She was not seriously injured but very stunned at the sudden occurrence! When she explained to the highway patrolman what had happened he told her something that every driver should know - NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON. She thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain.when your
car begins to hydro-plane and your tires lose contact with the pavement, your car will accelerate to a higher rate of speed making you take off like an airplane. She told the patrolman that was exactly what had occurred.

The patrolman said this warning should be listed, on the driver's seat sun-visor - NEVER USE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE PAVEMENT IS WET OR ICY, along with the airbag warning. We tell our teenagers to set the cruise control and control only when the pavement is dry. The only person the accident victim found, who knew this (besides the patrolman), was a man who had a similar accident, totalled his car and sustained severe injuries.

NOTE: Some vehicles (like the Toyota Sienna Limited XLE) will not allow you to set the cruise control when the windshield wipers are on. Drive Safely !!

The actions of today can affect your tomorrow. We all want to enjoy life, have fun and be free spirits. However, if destructive or irresponsible behavior is inclusive of our fun activities, we will have to pay the consequences. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction - remember? So, even seemingly small actions, like being a class clown in school, may have serious consequences. Tomorrow the kid may be a famous comedian or a high school drop out who never took school seriously.

Teaching and learning responsible behaviors and values means giving and receiving a priceless gift that will last a lifetime. Have a decco at these teacher funnies ......

Teacher ... George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but also admitted it. Now, Louis, do you know why his father didn't punish him?
Louis... Because George still had the ax in his hand.

Teacher ...Clyde, your composition on "My Dog" is exactly the same as your brother's. Did you copy his?
Clyde ... No, teacher, it's the same dog.

Teacher ... Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested?
Harold... A teacher !
