When Emily Huntington passed away last year in a motor vehicle collision involving texting, her family, friends, and high school decided to honor her life by producing a public service announcement. The producers acknowlege that we all may have tried texting while driving, but the risks are just too high to continue the behavior.
Don't text. Just Drive.
Drivers of all ages and experience levels are prone to lose sight of what is really important when they are being the wheel. The urge to make that latest status update can seem so tempting and so harmless . . . and yet, that is when calamity strikes. As a driver, your attention needs to be focused on the task of driving. You should not even check your texts or e-mails at a red light; whatever just came in will still be on your phone when you reach your destination. Don't text and drive.
