It wasn’t that long ago that I was returning home from the grocery store and witnessed something that truly scared me. As I pulled off our side street onto the main road, I watched a car drive by ahead of me. The girl was clearly texting as she was basically driving with her wrists as she typed on her phone, and the car was swerving back and forth.
I pulled out two cars behind her and kept an extra-watchful eye on the road. In situations like that, things can change in a minute, and I wanted to be alert enough for both of us. Which was a good thing, because a few moments later she as she continued to text, she crossed the center line and nearly hit a trailer truck head-on.
We live in a very connected world. As a blogger, I’m probably even more connected than some, as my phone is never far away. But when you get behind the wheel, you need to be responsible and consciously decide to drive.
