I am sure that you have done it before.
Many states have laws that state it is illegal, but most people ignore it.
Unfortunately there have been many deaths related to it. Texting while driving is becoming an epidemic. Personally, my hands are not clean of it as I have done it before, but now I’m fully subscribed to waiting to read texts when I am fully stopped and the car is in park.
Here is an amazing story from a teenager:
A local television station, WTVR, shared a report about a student who had an accident while texting. At one moment, while driving, he sent the text to a friend “I need to quit texting, because I could die in a car accident.”
The next moment he was driving off a cliff.
The incident left the car totaled and he “suffered a broken neck, a crushed face, a fractured skull and traumatic brain injuries. He was brought back to life three times by doctors.”
We have already shared why texting and driving is bad, but this real-life story just proves the case even more.
Please do not do it, for your sake and everyone else’s on the road.
Do you do anything special to prevent yourself from texting while driving?
