Texting and Driving

This issue keeps popping up more and more! Texting and driving is causing accidents and it’s becoming very serious. What are your thoughts? Any stories that anyone is willing to share?

According to The New York Times, President Obama banned Federal staff from texting and driving. Obama’s next step is to ban it for bus drivers and truckers except for emergencies.

I think if you’re going to ban it for some people and not others,  that’s where it becomes an issue. If you’re going to making talking on your cell phone while driving illegal, texting is even more dangerous.

Everyone does it—I admit to pulling out my phone and texting while driving but the truth of the matter is you’re really not paying attention to the road. Especially driving in Philadelphia or in any city, we should limit our texting, or better yet, don’t do it at all!

  1. Youngsters who are learning to drive on our roads need to be taught the clear rules and consequences of driving with a mobile phone.

    Their are too many people already driving and we need to make it more difficult to hold a drivers license.
