If you’re reading this then, like me, you’re guilty of texting and driving.
But let’s face it, the world has changed. Just 10 years ago, 65% of American adults owned a cell phone. Now, the number has rose to upwards of 90%. Ninety percent! That means out of every 10 adults, 9 of them own a cell phone.
To make matters worst, it’s been proven that 85% of us, around the world, can’t go a whole day without our cell phones. Are you a part of the 15%? I know I’m not.
My cell phone is probably with me 24/7. It’s my camera, my notebook, my calculator, my alarm clock, my television, my music player and more. I even started writing this post from my cell phone. So I know I’m a part of that 85%.
When that very important text message comes in, of course the right thing to do is answer it.
Yeah yeah yeah… but let’s be honest, texting while driving is inevitable. We all do it! Even the police text and drive. And although we try over and over to stop, certain things are just way too important and basically can’t wait.
So I decided… why not just share some of my successful tactics to texting while driving. Hopefully, these will keep you out of harms way next time you’re on the road.
Great, now that I have your attention, listen up!
Texting while driving is deadly. Seriously, don’t do it. We owe it to ourselves and the other drivers on the road to NOT text while driving.
While writing this post, about 150 car crashes happened in the US. Out of that 150, about 30 of them were texting and driving related. Tell you the truth, there’s been about 10 car crashes alone, involving texting and driving, since you started reading this article. Actually… make that 11.
Texting while driving is dangerous and what ever it may be, It Can Wait. It definitely could’ve waited for Wil, who’s now brain damaged because of a crash resulting from texting and driving.
Take a look:
Or what about what happened to little innocent Xzavier:
Nothing is that important that it can’t wait… especially when the decision to text and drive can kill both yourself and others
By the way, 4 more texting and driving crashes just happen…. nope, make that 5.
Share this post with your friends, family, and social networks and let’s attempt to put an end to texting and driving.
