How long can we say "It will never happen to me" before it happens to you? I am sooooo guilty!! Watch the Tim McGraw video and ask yourself if you have had a close call on the road with your cell phone? I have. In fact, I have done just what the girl in the video has done! Dropped the phone on the floor and tried to pick it up while driving. I did that just once and nearly killed myself and someone else as well! In fact, when I looked up I was heading straight for a car with 4 people in it. They looked terrified and I swerved just in time. But just how many chances do we get?
I know we talk about laws banning texting and driving, but we have got to start policing ourselves! We should not need a law to make us stop doing something that is clearly dangerous to ourselves and others. If you take your mind, attention or eyes off the road for even a second while going 70 mph in a vehicle you could die and take innocent lives with you! It only takes a second. I wish I could say that I NEVER look at my phone while driving...I can't. But I have promised myself that my phone will stay in my purse until I get to where I am going.
