Do You Text While Driving?

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you text while driving? I NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL! There isn't anything that important that ANyone has to say that's worth risking my life for! Sorry...you can all WAIT! 


Man Texts “I need to quit texting” Before Driving Into a Ravine
About six months ago, Chance Bothe typed out a text message while driving down a familiar Texas road. It was a simple “b right there,” but it changed the 21-year-old man’s life. While sending it, he veered off the road and into a ravine. Instead of visiting his pal, the young man wound up in a hospital, battling for his life.

If I'm at a red light I will. If I'm moving then the phone stays down. A few weeks ago it was pouring down as I was headed to work an I was almost side swipped by the car next to me because she was too busy texting to pay attention to the road. Stupid bruha.

Never.

And the argument I see a lot is "only when my kids aren't in the car"

Um. You have a responsibility to everyone around you when driving to be safe. Just because YOUR kids aren't in the car, doesn't mean you aren't endangering my kids if you're texting (or talking) while driving your car. Let's get back to the basics...if you're operating a vehicle at any speed, let's assume (correctly) that it requires both hands and all of your brain.

How is this something you "work on"? Just stop. It isn't a chemical addiction we're talking about.

It's not that easy for people to break habits
