Here is a youtube video I found very eye opening to me as I WAS guilty of texting while driving. It is graphic but worth watching. I was told that the time it takes you to send one text you travel the length of a football field in your car. Even if you are looking at the road and texting your mind is still on your phone and not on the road. People are so tempted to reply immediatly but we need to realize that text will still be there when we stop our vehicle. I am glad that they are talking about making it a law in Saskatchewan to not text while driving. Hopefully this will reduce the number of accedents that occur due to texting while driving.
