Awareness Wednesday: What's YOUR CAUSE? - Distracted Driving






Awareness Wednesday Button
This could NEVER be STRESSED ENOUGH!! 

Save MY LIFE  


and YOURS!! 

NO ONE is INVINCIBLE! 
The warnings are everywhere
WHY does this problem continue to 
GROW? 
Here is a HARSH REALITY CHECK that I personally feel should be shown in every Driver's Education class... and I had to sign in to verify I'm older than 18 to view it. UGH!! They figure it's too graphic and scary! Teens NEED TO SEE IT, too!! People (because ADULTS are just as guilty...) think they are invincible and that it can't happen to THEM... 
HELLOOOooo....!!!! 





And may I add... it's not JUST phones, but a whole myriad of distractions... eating, changing the radio/DVD... grabbing something that slipped... yelling at kids... your pet... The things you CAN control, DO IT! The things you can't, keep your priority on the road and tune OUT the distractions. Just a couple seconds DOES make a difference!!

So true. Before I really knew about texting, I would see all these kids driving while looking down. I said something to my son, and he said, "Oh, yeah. They're texting." WHAT THE? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I had no idea. Sorry you're sick, by the way. I have caught my husband's man cold, too. I make noises all night long, since my throat is swollen shut~keeping us both from a decent sleep. It's payback for his snoring. Get better!
