It Can Wait

One of my largest pet peeves while driving is people who text and drive, followed closely by folks who refuse to use their turn signals. My sister is a repeat offender, and I’ve driven behind her warily watching as she drifted in and out of her lane because she was distracted. I’m now terrified for her life anytime she gets behind the wheel of her car with her phone in tow. 

Statistically speaking, people who text and drive are 23 times as likely to get into a car accident than people who do not. It might also be illegal where you live. In Ohio, if you are stopped for a moving violation and they ascertain it was due to your cellphone use, you’ll be given an extra penalty and fined accordingly. 

So what’s the site about? Well, the site encourages you to pledge that you won’t text and drive. It also promotes driving safety, with hopes of reaching teens who are learning to drive and getting them on board with the “no texting and driving” pledge. 

I love the Video section where you can find PSAs created by teens for their peers, PSAs featuring the celebrities teens look up to, and videos from those who have lost someone because they were texting and driving. There’s even a ten minute Text While Driving Documentary that reviews multiple cases where texting while driving killed the driver, injured passengers, or made victims out of bicyclists/pedestrians. 

In the Your Stories section you can read why people are taking the pledge and share you own reasons for taking the pledge by filling out the form provided on the page. 

Want more information about the statistics that have been found about texting and driving? Just check out this infographic! I think you’ll be surprised at what you find, I know I was. I was also disheartened.

Take the pledge today because no text message, video, or notification is worth your life.
