Last week, John Mousseau from Port Huron, Michigan, sent us a video he created about the dangers of texting while driving.
John and his son were out enjoying their day together. As they were driving, a teenager made a wide turn almost colliding with the passenger side of Johns vehicle. The teenager was busy sending a text message as he was making the turn.
Thankfully, no one was hurt and John and his son were able to avoid the collision.
We asked John why he wanted to create such a video?
“I made this short because I see so many people on a daily basis that don’t observe the laws of the road. People are too concerned with the next text they need to send,” responded John. “I feel if people saw a more vivid depiction of the harsh truth, they would be more inclined to see the reason and logic to practice safe driving,” continued John.
You can watch the video below. Feel free to share and spread the word about the dangers of texting while driving.
We all understand that texting and driving is very dangerous. But why do we continue to do it? Maybe we feel we are capable of multi-tasking. Or maybe we are too connected to our phones.
Whatever our reasons, we need to put down our phones and keep our eyes on the road ahead. Not only are we putting ourselves at risk but we are risking the lives of others who are sharing the road with us. It’s just not worth it.
