Texting and Driving

Texting and Driving

A couple of weeks ago, Liberty Mutual released some new tips on safe driving.  Each tip was accompanied by a short video clip.  Check out the link above to view the video.

Hawaii recently passed a law that prohibits using a cell phone or similar devices while driving.  When the law was passed, I saw some interviews on the news asking for the publics’ opinion.  Before the law was passed, I would occasionally use my cell phone while driving.  And I admit, it was difficult driving and dialing a number at the same time!  I couldn’t believe that some younger drivers could drive and text at the same time.  But then I saw another interview where the texter could text quickly and accurately, without even looking at her phone!  I made me realize that you could text and drive if you’re good at texting.  Still, as the video shows, even a moment’s distraction can be dangerous.

    I’m glad you posted this.  Having been on the receiving end of an auto accident caused by a distracted driver, I’ve been firmly opposed to even talking on a cell phone while driving, much less texting while driving.  If it’s so important, pull over and make the call or text!  (Unless it’s an absolute emergency.)  Just my $0.02 worth.
