Texting while driving seems to me to be even more dangerous than talking on the phone. At least while talking on the phone you are still using your eyes, and your hands are on the wheel? I’m not advocating talking on the phone, but rather just wondering why texting is such a minor offense, both legally and—more saliently—socially.
This public service announcement is a stunning enactment of the consequences of texting while driving. Share it with everyone you know.
It’s the baby’s eyes that get me.
When I was younger, a my family’s friends were in a drunk driving accident. The toddler aged boy was thrown from the car to his death. The baby girl was safe, and released from the hospital to my family’s care while her mom and dad recovered physically. Nobody ever got over it emotionally.
Sure, a drunk driver is a bit different than texting while driving. Or is it? I don’t know, I just know those glassy baby blue eyes get to me. I hope you feel the same.
Don’t text and drive.
