Yesterday, a car right behind me got t-boned in an intersection by a big truck.
JUST 50 FEET BEHIND ME!
My first thought was, “I wonder if the driver of the truck was texting while driving?”
Last year, I flew to Arizona to speak to a large group of executives and, atypical of me, I rented a sports car.
And, you guessed it, I got a speeding ticket.
But, the GREAT thing was that I took an online safe driving course as a result and what I learned about texting while driving blew my mind.
Driving while texting, which didn’t exist a decade ago, already kills as many people as drinking and driving.
That’s why I took the pledge not to text while driving and you should, too!
When I get in my car, I select what I want to listen to and then I put my phone out of reach — and you should give it a try.
You are far too important to die young, spend your life disabled, or ruin the life of another person by causing an accident.
Don’t text and drive.
Take the pledge.
