DO NOT TEXT AND DRIVE
The next day, the paper reported that it had been a two-car accident. While looking at his/her cell phone, a motorist rear-ended another vehicle, sending it out of control. It careened onto the sidewalk and killed one pedestrian and injured another. The texting driver will most likely be charged with manslaughter.
Was the driver's cell phone so important to take a life and severely injure another? Was it so important that s/he is willing to spend a good portion of the remainder of his/her life in prison?
I can't stress enough, DO NOT USE A CELL PHONE WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING. Please share this with your kids, with everyone.
