Last week I attended an anti texting and driving event put on by AT&T and yesterday I saw a 5 car wreck because someone was texting and driving. I don’t know all the details yet but 3 of the cars were totaled and luckily I don’t think anyone was severly injured. None the less texting and driving is a terrible idea. I decided I was going to stop doing it after the event last week and I’ve caught myself EVERY single time I get into the car reaching for my phone. Whether it’s to text or read an email it’s just a bad idea. If you use your phone while driving and take out a kid or kill a family in a minivan you become a murderer. It’s not an accident if you make that choice. I’ve had a cell phone since 1997 and I can say with 100% accuracy I always look at my phone while driving, well not anymore.
I know this is all a bit harsh but come on people, just stop texting an driving. It’s stupid and you can kill someone ruining not just their life but also their family and friends.
