Texting & Driving

Texting and Driving.  Ever done this?  If you have, I bet you that while you were doing it you thought: 
  1. I should NOT be doing this -- it’s dangerous; 
  2. 2. But I need to do this.

And I bet that you maybe ‘wandered’ over the center line of the highway and luckily avoided a crash, or, that you looked up and had to brake really HARD to avoid hitting a vehicle in front of you.  If you have ever texted while driving I am sure that you have had a ‘scare’ and had the thought that you really -- and I mean REALLY -- should NOT be doing this.  Right?

Tragic accidents happen every day involving texting while driving.  In fact, it is so bad that the official form used by all police departments in Indiana now have a box that the investigating officer must check if texting was a cause of an accident.  And, there are penalties that can be imposed on the guilty driver.

You know you should not do this, so DON’T.  Stop by the side of the road and do your texting there.  It’s safer and your spelling wll b betr!  And your message will make more sense, and you will not hurt anyone else or your self.
