I am so ranting today!
This is one post that I wish I could "SHOUT" out, all across America, to every driver that gets behind the wheel of a vehicle.
On my way to Tyler today....I honestly felt as if I were in some kind of driving battle. Every where I looked, a driver was either texting or talking on their phone. Several in front of me were also driving erratically.
When I'm behind a person who irresponsibly drives and text......I can almost always know what is happening!
While they may think they are in control of the vehicle....their path tends to tell otherwise. Crossing lines....slowing down....speeding up.....These are good indications that someone is texting and driving!
When it comes to "meeting" a car......it can sometimes be too late to know what they are doing. In other words....they have crossed the line and are heading right for you, before you have to hit the ditch to avoid a head on collision.
This particular quote.......says what needs to be said!!!
Why? Why would a parent, text their child or their loved one.....knowing that they could possibly be behind the wheel of a vehicle???? What is a kid to do?
1. They send a reply text at the risk of their own life being taken, or the life of someone else being taken too soon.
2. They ignore the text....and usually end up in trouble when they get home for not replying to the text.
Wake up Parents!!!
It is frightening to think about sharing the road with a someone who is not in control.....It makes me want to shout...
Wake up People!!!
The least that a person could do....(if they are going to continue to text, talk and drive).....is:
Put a huge red flag on your car....to warn others that you are driving dangerously and are being very inconsiderate of the lives of others.
In the past....I have been guilty of texting and driving....maybe one or two times. Very unwise decision.
However.....I know of so many people who have suffered loss, due to a driver that was texting. A texted message is NOT worth the risk of losing ones life or losing the life of others.
I STRONGLY disapprove of Texting and Driving!!!
If this opens one persons eyes today.....then I say....
Thank you Lord!
blessings my sweet friends..
Don't Text/Talk and drive!!
