My cousin posted a petition in her state about making texting while driving a more serious offense. I have to say that I agree with her, people need to held more accountable than they are when it comes to this. Accidents and deaths related to being on your phone while driving are increasing. I feel that when you’re driving, your focus should be on the road, not on your phone.
I feel that if you’re caught texting and such while driving, you should receive more than just a slap on the wrist or a tiny fine. I think it should be treated much like drunk driving. Your judgement is impaired because you’re focusing more on whomever you’re talking to and often times your mood is elevated and you’re not thinking clearly. Either pull over or let it wait until you’re wherever you’re headed. If it results in a death, you should serve time. This is my personal thoughts on the matter.
I think awareness should be raised all over the country, all over the world. Focus on the roads people, lives are at stake.
