A 2017 Request

Please stop playing with your phone when you are driving. It only takes a second to drift out of your lane or not notice something in front of you. Don’t become a statistic. Don’t end someone else’s life.

The Facebook notifications, random texts, and Snaps can wait a few minutes until you reach your destination. If something is so important it requires immediate attention, pull off the road, park, and respond. Or use a hands-free call to respond instead of typing on the phone.

If you are good at keeping your phone tucked away, convince at least one other person to do the same.
