After watching my tivoed Oprah, I went onto oprah.com and pledged to make my vehicle a no phone zone. Studies have shown that talking and driving are the same as drunk driving. With both drunk driving and talk on the phone, you are 4 times more likely to get in a wreck.
If you are texting and driving, you are 8 times more likely to get in a wreck.
I watched how many lives have been taken because of people texting or talking on the phone while driving. I cried throughout the episode. (many parents who have lost children) Please join me and make your vehicle a no phone zone. If you are not totally convinced, go watch the episode on oprah.com.
I must admit that I am guilty of this. Not so much the texting, but the phone talking. I am pledging to quit.
Remember the good ol' days, when you left the house an no one could get a hold of you? You arrived home and checked the answering machine, and somehow we were all fine and it worked.
