You think I’d know better

Avoid Texting While Driving. Simple enough advice.

Yes, I know that I don’t need to check my phone while I’m driving.

Sometimes I check and read text while driving, I’ll answer a call and if I am at a stop light I will begin a text.

Now I am very aware that this is a dumb thing to do. I can wait until I ge where I’m going to know why my phone vibrated.

Today driving to class I put my phone down after reading a text, when I put my phone back in the center console of my car I saw a county sheriff car passing me on I-5. That made me think….huh, maybe I won’t look at my phone, it’s definitely not worth a ticket.

Ten minutes later my phone vibrated again. I reached for it, and left it alone.

They say driving distracted is as bad as driving drunk. I would disagree. I can decide to stop being distracted. I’ve never seen anyone just to stop being drunk.

Texting while driving can get you a ticket. But don’t worry, it’s still OK to hold on to something that is on fire, putting it into your mouth. And you can have a live animal on your lap, because we know that is not dangerous. But don’t you dare pull out that phone.
