Texting While Driving
Just this year in our great state of Tennessee, lawmakers passed a law making it illegal to text while driving. It’s really an unenforceable law, but I’m not going to get into all of that. It’s a common sense thing in the first place – if your attention is on your phone (this can include talking on the phone as well – I avoid it as much as possible while driving), you’re not nearly as focused as you need to be on your driving.
A coworker just showed me this video a few minutes ago. Before you click play, let me warn you that if you don’t like blood, you won’t want to see it. It’s not real, but it is graphic. It is a public service announcement put out in England about the risks taken when you take your attention off the road.
Looks like the video was removed because it violated some part of YouTube’s terms of service. I’m not going to keep posting updated videos, but if you’d like, you can search for ‘texting while driving’ and it’ll turn up for you to see.
