Why you shouln't text while driving.

Do you text while you drive? If so, watch this.

Consider this your Fictionistas PSA.


  1. I won't even use my cell phone without a blue tooth while driving... and if it's more than a few words I pull over.

  2. Wow. That was heartbreaking. And very sobering.

  3. The video isn't coming up for me, but I don't understand why anyone would text and drive. It doesn't make sense.

  4. Powerful stuff. And moving.

    From what I've read, it's distraction more than anything that does us in as drivers. When we take our attention off the road (to text or talk or eat or anything) we have a bizarre psychological glitch that makes us believe that nothing will change until we look back again...which makes us vulnerable to thinking "this driving thing is easy, I can do other stuff at the same time."
