By now, I'm sure you've heard the story of the kid in Texas who crossed the center line hitting a church minibus in a head-on collision in Texas. Sadly, 20 year-old Jack Young killed 13 people because he was texting while driving, and there is only one survivor. Right now that accident is under investigation.
When on the road, it never ceases to amaze me how many people are talking or texting on their phones while driving. I tried it once with a friend's phone in a parking lot, and I couldn't keep my car straight. If you think you have control to take your eyes off the road for just a few seconds, it just isn't true.
According to http://www.romans322.com/texting-while-driving.html, 1590 people have already died from texting while driving from January 1, 2017 through April 7!
Surely we can hear about a new boyfriend/girlfriend once we get home, or you can share the news about the new restaurant you just tried a little later. Is taking our eyes off the road to text or read a message that important? Is it worth your life, or the life of someone else?
