In the world over, for one to be considered a competent driver, you must go through a training process which consists of twenty eight lessons. Half of these are theoretical in nature and the other half are practical. The theory involves lessons taught in the lecture room and they are basically a simulation of the actual thing on the roads. The practical ones involve getting behind the wheel of a car and driving out on to the road.

The basics of driving lessons are road signs. They form an important and integral part of driving. They are the instruction givers when a driver is on the road. They tell you when to slow down, accelerate, stop, turn, move straight on and what to expect along the way. Road signs are basically a manual pasted along the road to guide a driver and ignoring any of them can have far reaching consequences sometimes even leading to death.

We are all on a journey called Life and there are so many signs along the way. These signs can be the law of the land, parents/guardians, teachers, law enforcement officers, religious leaders or even our own conscience. These help us navigate the sometimes tricky, bumpy and treacherous road called life. I have witnessed on so many occasions where somebody ignored a warning from one of these “signs” and they ended up in some very serious trouble. I speak especially to the young people: signs are erected along any road or path for your own good. They show you which direction to go, which places and sections to avoid and what to do or not do when you get to a specific place. Obey them and you will be among the most  successful. To read more posts by Mwangi, click HERE
