Default Re: Don't FRF and Drive!

My sister wrecked texting while driving. And some FRF members have openly posted about being on the forum while on the road. I just want ppl to think and to see what happens..your eyes are on the road less if you are texting than if you are driving drunk!

That's because teens think they are invincible so they can anything they want and nothing will happen to them. That and the fact they "must" reply back to a text right away. My cousin is like that, if I don't text her back within 5 mins, she gets pissed .

People need to realize that they can have a life without having to be conjoined to their phones.

I used to text and drive alot when i first got my license and then got text taken off my phone and that was one the best things i ever had done sadly, i rarely text and drive now if i get a text ill usually call the person on bluetooth.

i know since my accident at work i havent had my phone on me near as much and can actually leave it at home and not feel weird when i go to the store or something like that

Back to the topic, this is a pretty effective "documentary" PSA put out by AT&T about the dangers of texting and driving. Its a pretty sobering video and based on actual true events. Its sad, this happens every day. I know the age demograhic of this site is young, most kids here have just got their full license and based on statistics are the MOST likely to be texting and driving. Ive posted this video before here and other sites, everyone really should watch it, might just change your view on texting and driving.

I also believe this is an issue. I only did it one time. When I saw how oblivious and distracted I was, I never did it again. Texting and driving is a huge problem.

They will never know the horror of calling a girlfriend and her parents picking up the phone. It's sad. This generation missed out on a lot of experiences that you can't have unless you're face to face.

I was driving yesterday and I thought of something I needed to tell someone by text but thought of how inconvenient texting really is. If I called the person I could say it much quicker and with less effort. Regardless I texted the guy later that day.

Texting while driving and talking on the phone (unless it's hands free) is actually illegal here (^ wouldn't have done it while driving even if it was legal). The only thing I do on my phone while driving is use maps, and even then I try not to. If I can pull over and type in directions I will.

I used to text and drive when I was in high school. Didn't really think much about it, I've swerved a couple times here and there but I didn't care. Like stated before, I was 16 and thought I was invincible. On a monday I came to math(one of my best buddies always sat across from me so we could get answers from each other) and he wasn't there. I thought, okay, he's sick today. Later on in the day I heard that he was in the ICU. He rolled his truck into a tree....he was texting they said. Ever since then anytime I get in my truck I don't touch my phone until I get where I'm going. It's not worth the risk from not paying attention. Hell, I'm 19 and I'm understanding the risks of texting and driving, so it's not a hard subject to comprehend. JUST DON'T DO IT
