Don’t text and drive

Is it worth it to put your life in danger just to respond to one text message? Texting and driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents and deaths in the United States.

A case study shows that about 5,000 people each year die in the U.S. from texting and driving. Another study showed that four of five accidents are attributed to distracted drivers.

Due to these statistics, texting and driving should be completely against the law. If a friend or loved one would happen to be killed in an accident because they were texting while driving, you would be devastated.

Think of everyone else in the world and how devastated they would be if they lost a friend or loved one because of texting and driving. Save your life and other lives and stay off the phone while driving.

Just remember, is it worth it?
