Category Archives: No Phone Zone!
Will you be making your car a no phone zone?
I personally wasn’t going to take the pledge because I thought hey I am a responsible driver and I know I won’t ever get into an accident because of texting on the phone.
Well one day when I was driving home from campus after a class I turned down a street and the woman coming in the opposite direction was driving in the middle of the road and had her head focused on her cell phone as she sent a text. She looked up at the last minute and swerved out of the way avoiding my car and she ended up running off the side of the road into a ditch. It was in that instant that I realized how dangerous driving while talking or texting on the phone is so dangerous.
I know we all feel like we have to be connected every second of every minute of every day but there comes a point where being connected has to be weighed with being safe.
I encourage you all to take Oprah’s No Phone Zone pledge to make your car a phone free zone. I promise you the call can wait, the text can wait. It’s not your life or someone else’s.
