Why I no longer text and drive...

Don't worry, I'm not about to give a lecture on the dangers of texting and driving (which is probably much needed). More so I am sharing why I no longer text and drive. Just a few weeks ago I was taking Noah and Asa to see Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle David and Uncle Matt. During that 30 mile ride something happened that changed my views on texting and driving forever. 

On this particular day I had passed several police cars. Fortunately, I was watching my speed. Being the caring, older sister that I am, I sent a friendly text message to Matt reminding him to watch his speed. I knew he'd be leaving for work any minute. The following is our text message conversation.

Me: Lots of cops out today. watch your speed.

Matt: You get pulled over?

Me: No I'm too fart. (let me remind you my eyes were on the road so I was unable to spell check my texts)

Matt: I know you are.

Me: I just passed you getting on the highway.

Matt: you passed me getting in the highway huh?

Me: Yea. You see me waving?

Matt: You need to stop texting and driving.

Me: Why? you are?

At this time, I arrived safely at mom and dad's to realize that Matt's car was still parked in the driveway. I am beginning to wonder how I've made it this long texting and driving.


  1. I wont touch my phone when I am driving. If it rings on well. I don't even look at the thing, even thought I put it in sight in case I need it for an emergency.

  2. I cannot text and drive anymore after I almost caused and accident with myself (7months pregnant) and I Semi-Truck.
    I put my phone in my lap, and answer messages when I've parked.
