Texting....Driving....Dont Mix The Two...
It seems that no one notices my own posts on how real the problem is to be on the road with people who are texting and driving, BUT...even Oprah is getting on the band wagon of telling people to stop! Seriously folks, we see ADULTS more then teens texting - my own sister and neices are guilty of this so I am not picking on anyone!!
I posted the list of new state laws regarding texting and driving here in case your state is listed - I know in New York, even though people STILL do it, the fine is pretty darn hefty if caught! One of the guys I used to work with tried to get me to fight the ticket for him ($90), but after I asked him if he was guilty of it and he said yes, I said NO WAY! I also posted here our own experiences on the road with people who text.
It is just an accident waiting to happen (and HAS happened)!
So please, that text CAN wait...seriously.
Here is Oprahs message:
