A Better Mid-South: Stoplight Safety

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

I was reminded last week how critical it is to be vigilant, no matter where you are.

I was astounded when I heard a 20-year-old University of Memphis student was robbed, get this, as he sat in his car at a stoplight.

Give me a break. We've got to be on high alert, even while waiting for the light to turn green.

This robbery spurred us to seek ways to help you stay safe while in your car.

Janeen Gordon is the expert when it comes to traffic in the Mid-South.  She will give you the best information to keep yourself safe, whether you are in a parking lot or at a stoplight.

Watch Janeen's report Thursday night at 10, and tell me what traveling tips you have to share for others.

Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or post a message on my Facebook page.

Empower yourself with this key safety information to stay safe while in your car. It will make this a safer and better Mid-South.
