A blog post I read really hit a nerve with me (My Friend Teresa Photography), and I’m determined to do my little part in trying to stop the madness. The post was about a woman who came close to losing her life in a car accident, which was caused by a girl who was texting while driving.
It affected me strongly, because I’ve been noticing more and more young drivers texting, even though it has been against the law for the past two years in my province (and a total dumb-ass practice for much longer than that). Come on kids. Are you seriously okay with texting while you’re driving?
Texting behind the wheel = I’m okay with committing suicide/homicide
Do they really need to tell their BFF that they’re LOL while driving on a highway? WTF?
I’m focused on teenagers, because that’s who I’ve noticed most often, and that’s who I’m really scared for. But that doesn’t let us adults off the hook. There are lots of “grown-up” dumb-asses out there too.
This video should be mandatory for all teenagers before they get their driver’s license. It sent shivers down my spine and brought me to tears. Please share it with as many people as you can. It will make a difference if we all do our smallest part. Thanks for listening to this mom, who just wants all our kids to be safer out there on the roads.
