Stupidity However, Is Still Perfectly Legal
Studies have proven that you are 3x more likely to be involved in an accident on the road if you are texting. 3x more likely, that is crazy! Is driving not dangerous enough as it is? I think we have all been behind somebody at an intersection who sits there texting oblivious to the fact that the light has turned green. Or maybe you've seen somebody veer off the highway and swerve back into the lane, only to look over and see that they're either texting, or have a center console that is far more interesting than mine.
Laws should be stricter on texting and driving. We need to lose this over-inflated sense of self-importance that makes us feel like we have to respond to a text or an email the very second it comes in. When you are texting, your eyes are not on the road. When your eyes are not on the road, people die. If you are not able to control yourself while you drive, I recommend turning your phone off and putting in in your trunk before you drive anywhere.
Would it really be worth ending somebody's life so you can send one last lol? No, it's not, and can happen to you. Give it some thought, stop driving and texting.
