“If I get a text, I look at my phone.”
“Instagram. Twitter. Facebook.”
“The fare has a pretty important role driving now.”
“Texting is my primary form of communication.”
“If someone you like texts you, you can’t just like tell it sit there without just knowing.”
“Because what if something exciting is happening or something happened? ”
These were just a few of the replies given when this group of teens was asked the question 😛 TAGEND
“What are your reasons for using telephone calls while driving? ”
It’s just a quick peek. We have it all under control. I know I shouldn’t be doing it, but it’s too hard to stop. What’s the impairment, right ? em > strong>
That seemed to be the general consensus–that is, before Jacy went in the chamber. As she sat face-to-face with each of them, she “ve told them” her narrative in a video sponsored by It Can Wait 😛 TAGEND
“When I was 21 years old driving dwelling from my college graduation formality, a operator on his telephone was so confused he turned left into the intersection at a red light. Another auto, an 18 -wheeler, veered to miss him and smacked my family’s car. And the resulting collision actually fucking kill my parents.
I spent two months in the hospital fighting for my own life and then two more months in a rehab hospital learning how to walk again, learning how to speak again, learning how to dress myself and how to feed myself.
I live with a partially paralyzed form. I didn’t have my father to walk me down the aisle when I got married.”
The teens were in shock over her legend. They sobbed openly as they determined the brutal world of the results of distracted driving.
When asked if they could look at Jacy and grant her those main reasons, the chattering about texting and Snapchat was replaced with silence and tears.
“I’m not gonna look at my phone < em> ever again, ” mentioned one.
When it comes right down to it, There are no good reasons.
Please SHARE this important message with your friends and family. This isn’t simply a teen trouble. It’s everyone’s problem.
