Still Driving & Texting

I have a hard enough time texting that I certainly wouldn't even attempt it while driving...others continue to do it despite the dangers.

I have a hard enough time texting that I certainly wouldn't even attempt it while driving...others continue to do it despite the dangers.

Recently while riding as a passenger, I watched one person after another in nearby vehicles texting and driving.  They would type in a few letters, look up, look down to type in a few more, look up again.  I observed this in numerous vehicles.  You probably see the same thing.

Keep in mind,  NC has a law on the books that bans all drivers from texting and driving.  Violators can be fined $100.00 plus court costs.

Of course the bigger cost is the dangers of texting and driving.  In fact, a study by Car and Driver Magazine concludes it is worse than drinking and driving.

Just something to think about as more people are out and about on the roadways enjoying the summer.
