Texting While Driving!

Wow, it's been over 8 months since my last blog! I guess you can say it was due to lack of inspiration. However, my birthday was on the 6th of last month and something eye-opening happened so I thought I'd share it with all of you. It pertains to the theme of my blog which is technology and society.

So, for my birthday I decided to go to las vegas. We had a great three days and four nights. On the morning of departure, we packed and loaded our luggage into the trunk of our friends car. The minuet we settled in and started driving, I notice our friend holding his phone and obviously reading something while driving. I thought, well, he might just be looking at the gps or something quick. A good hour passes and he is still on his phone! Mind you, he is driving on the freeway on the way to Los Angeles, that's a good 5 hour drive! The entire time, never once did he put down his phone. As a passenger, I felt really nervous the entire time because he wasn't paying full attention to the road! I asked him about why he was on his phone while driving and he said something like “I do it all the time!”.

Deadly accidents happen on the streets on a daily basis because people text and drive, now imagine how much more dangerous it is on the freeway! Hopefully, with this post I can bring awareness to people who are doing this and think they have everything under control. Don't wait till you kill someone before you choose to stop this behavior. Drive responsibly and pay full attention to your driving. Luckily, nothing happened to us on that trip back from vegas… BUT WHAT IF?! We can't just take chances that can potentially cost a lost life, it's not worth it! Be safe guys! Thanks for reading.

I took this photo on the way back, I thought the clouds looked lovely!
