I am asking because my son was almost hit yesterday. He was on his bike putting on his helmet at the edge of our driveway when a neighbors teen daughter swerved up into our driveway. She only looked up when she hit the curb. I yelled for her to stop and she did. I let her know she almost hit my son and I was informing her parents she was texting and driving.
Her dad is a police officer and teaches a class about texting and driving since he has worked too many accidents involving someone texting in our area. She laughed and drove off. I called her dad and let him know what happened two neighbors witnessed it and told him he could speak with them if he didn't believe me. He said he would take care of it. Last night she came to our home and apologized to my son and to me. She let me know her dad took her cellphone and car for 6 months. She also has to do work for me for for three hours once a week for free for the entire 6 months. She will be doing all my yard work the rest of the summer.lol She is angry with me but I am very glad her parents are taking action. She could kill someone texting and driving.
Do you text and drive? If you do text and drive do you realize how little control you have over your vehicle? do you realize that people die everyday in car accidents because of it? Do you realize that people who text and drive actually are more dangerous than a drunk driver?
