STOP TEXTING WHILE DRIVING
For you guys not in the United States, our government censors a lot of stuff and doesn’t give us graphic images in the news and such. They say it is bad for us. So we must go to the internet!
Imagine a crowd repeating: “To the internet!” while pointing to the horizon.
Please watch the video at the end of this article from the PSA in the UK. It isn’t too bad, I was able to hold in my breakfast just fine, and you can see the computer generated graphics anyway.
Since we’re in the mood for good causes and such lately around here, we should start a dumbphone drive to collect flip phones and old used phones to give to passengers for them to chuck at drivers that are texting while driving. I mean yeah, I ride my bike as often as I can, but when I have to get behind a steering wheel I find myself honking at more people than ever before because they’re going into my lane! If you’ve ever been yelled at with a “Get off your phone!” while driving around here in the Los Angeles/Orange County area, there’s a good chance it was me.
How many times have you gotten a text from a person that is driving?
It slows people down too, when the light turns to green, the drivers are so focused on their cell phones that they get honked at and then get mad at you and flip you off while blasting Britney Spears on their stereos. We all know that Getting Honked At is awkward.
If you are one of these people, please stop. You’re not just risking YOUR life, and you shouldn’t have the right to risk anyone else’s life.
Text her later. Airplane mode it. Hands-free phone call. Have Siri text for you. Be fully focused on operating your 4,000 lb machine at 97 feet per second.
Why don’t they show these things around here? Freakin U.S.
