If you ask someone “Would you like to be a superhero?”, most likely the person would say, “Definitely!”. Then you could ask why they’d like to be a superhero, and the other person would say so that they can help make the world a better place and save lives. There are actually many ways anyone can do that wherever they are because they have that power. One of those ways has to do with driving. So what am I referring to? Well, a driver affects many people – other drivers, passengers (either their own or others’), those walking along the sidewalk, etc.. And now you’re saying “Aaand?” It’s easy, really. A driver could potentially save a life or lives just by waiting to text. It’s tempting to just send a real quick message, just takes a couple seconds, but it can have deadly results. That quick text will take some of your attention and focus away from your driving – no matter how great a driver you are – and those seconds could destroy your life and/or others’ lives.
By not texting while driving, you could actually save a life and/or lives. I’ve heard about some really awful, tragic accidents, where people were killed or paralyzed, that could have been avoided so easily. Yet because someone wasn’t paying attention to their driving like they should have been, some people’s family members never made it home or are paralyzed. The types of negligence by some drivers varies – texting, not paying attention because the driver’s focused on a conversation they’re having via Blue Tooth, alcohol, drugs, speeding, etc.. And there are so many innocent victims. I know a girl who sustained serious, life-altering injuries – she and her family, and everyone wishes they could change what happened, but they can’t. You can help keep these things from happening again.
So, if you drive, next time you’re tempted to text while driving, please use your power wisely and remember – “It can wait.” And everyone who’s a passenger has this ability to save lives also. If the person driving is texting or focused on their “hands-free-but-not-paying-attention-to-their-driving” phone conversation, ask them to please stop, because “It can wait.”
Even when the Hardys or Nancy are following bad guys, they know they have to be careful for others and also for their own safety, so they can survive to help fight evil and make the world a safer place. R U doing ur part? 🙂
