These incredible pictures are of a man talking into his cell phone with his left hand while texting with his right hand while driving 70 mph on the highway. Shame on you, driver! You are a danger to society.
My friend, who was in the passenger seat of my car, took these pictures. I was focused on passing this guy safely as he was swerving all over the highway.
All Distracted Driving Needs To Stop
Every day that I get into my car, I feel like I have to battle for my life. Every day I see distracted drivers swerving or driving in a dangerous manner. This has got to stop now. Even my next door neighbor was a recent victim of distracted driving. She was rear-ended by a driver who had dogs in his lap while eating a sandwich. This dumb driver rear-ended my neighbor at a red light!
Please Take The Pledge To Never Text And Drive
Take the pledge. Make that promise to yourself. The website www.ItCanWait.com has a host of tools and resources to promote this idea. ItCanWait.com seems to kids targeted to kids. So if you have kids who are driving, you can point them to ItCanWait.com. However, in my experience, it is adults that I see swerving while texting. Gosh, can you just use your plain old common sense to keep that promise to yourself, to your family, to your friends, and to your fellow drivers. Just stop texting and driving.
Just Wait Or Pull Over
If you absolutely need to see that text message (Come on! Is that text really THAT important?) just pull over. Safely pull to the side of the road and jump all over that important text. Better yet, wait until you are done driving and put your car in park, then check your messages. That way, you won’t have any chance of causing an accident from your distracted driving.
Lives Destroyed By Texting And Driving
This 34 minute movie by the famed film producer Werner Herzog is a must see. You may not be aware of the devastating consequences of the simple act of texting while driving.
