    Don't Text and Drive!

    There are more text-related traffic accidents now than DUI accidents.

    Remember that Amtrak traindriver who was texting, didn't see the curve, and ended up killing 40 people onboard, including himself? Have you heard about the 9 year old girl riding a bicycle home from school, the driver not seeing her − because she was texting and not paying attention to where she was − , and the little girl being killed immediately on impact?

    Did you know a person who is on the phone while driving or who is drunk driving is four times more likely to cause an accident than someone without distractions, but a person who is texting while driving is 8 times more likely to cause an accident? That's worse than drunk driving. drunken

    So place your friend, your sister, your brother, your father, your mother, your cousin, your grandma, yourself in both of these positions: victim and driver. Would you like to see them be killed by someone for a phone conversation? Or would you be okay with knowing that you killed someone for a text saying "LOL THATS Very Happy"?
