The Texting While Driving Lie

We tell ourselves we aren’t like them, that we got this thing, that we pay attention enough to text and drive.  Uh-huh.

To put it West Texas indelicately: bullshit.

I’m not gonna lecture with stats.  I’m not gonna shame folks.  I’m also not gonna turn a blind eye to accidents and deaths that are Easy-Bake-Oven simple to prevent.

Someone dim the lights and let’s watch a few informative reels (thanks to Lisa at Grandma’s Briefs for two of the videos).



This is an issue that I deal with weekly.  I’m a runner and pretty much every time I’m out on the streets for a run, I have to avoid being run over by someone on their phone, either texting or talking while driving.

People are risk takers, I get it.  But, don’t put others at risk with your behavior.  If you’re driving, drive.  There’s nothing so important that it’s worth risking anyone’s well-being or life based on the stupidity of texting while driving.

Don’t lie to yourself or others. Don’t text and drive.

So true! I counted 30 people using their phone on the way home the other afternoon. That was just in about a 30 minute or 40 minute time span. Pretty scary.

Sadly, as a runner who watches traffic intently, this doesn't surprise me. Scary, indeed.
