See what one state is doing to stop drivers from texting!
On my way home from getting my tire fixed. I noticed how people
was driving and what they were doing while driving. One work
truck slammed on his breaks because he was on his phone.
He could of waited to take the call until he could pull over
safely. Was it a personal or work call? I will never know. I just
know that due to him being on the phone he almost caused an
accident. Did he have driving insurance? I sure hope so. Another
women was driving an SUV. She was fixing her hair and putting on
makeup. She didn't pay any attention to the road signs that stated
"Lane Closed. From cell phones, to makeup, music, dvd players,
reading and a distracted mind. All of these are distractions of
driving. And there is even more that I haven't named. Cops in
Georgia are now dressing up as construction workers to catch
people texting. I would rather someone be stopped for not
paying attention to the road, rather than causing an accident.
The next time you get into your car, stop and think about what
you are doing. You are stepping into a 1 ton car or even more
weight that comes with bigger cars. Every time you drive, Its
not just about your safety!
