Just say NO to Texting and Driving

One thing that really bothers me is when people text while driving. It's so dangerous and irresponsible. You can put your phone down and focus on the road. It's so important not to drive distracted. I can not stand being in the car with someone who checks their phone. I don't care if you are at a stoplight. If the car is running, your phone is down. I knew a girl who always texted while driving with her son in the car. I just don't understand. She would hold the phone in her hand above the steering wheel.  I will admit I check my phone a lot but there's a time and place for it. I also can't stand when you are hanging out with someone and they are constantly on their phone. It's pretty rude in my opinion. You are ignoring the person you are with. I try not to check my email or texts when I am spending time with people. Sometimes I check my phone because they are on theirs.

I have found my voice and have told people not to text and drive when I am in the car. I ask them to please put their phone down. I am a mom and Noah comes first. If you put my life in danger, you are likely to be gone from my life. When Noah starts driving he will not text and drive. It's not worth it. I will monitor his phone and I will take it away. I have a zero tolerance policy. There will be no sorry I forgot or another chance. One text and it's gone. Have you even seen the texting and driving ads? They are really scary. It only takes an instant.  You can't do it. You don't want to be another statistic.

Please read about the dangers of texting and driving and please don't do text and drive.
