Talking on Cell Phone While Driving Can Be Deadly
We’ve all seen people doing it. Perhaps, in a lapse of judgement, we’ve even done it ourselves. Although talking on your cell phone while driving is illegal many people still engage in this dangerous practice. Yesterday at Whitesboro High School and at VVS a victim of inattention due to cell phone use while driving, Jacy Good of Pennsylvania, spoke to students of the dangers first hand. According to WKTV Jacy and her parents were the victims of a cell phone distracted driver with devastating results.
A young driver talking on a cell phone ran a red light causing another vehicle to swerve and hit their car.
Both of Jacy’s parents were killed instantly and Jacy Good was hospitalized with critical injuries, not expected to survive. While she eventually did survive, her live was forever changed.
The answer is, of course, to obey the law. Make that call before you start to drive or pull over before you begin your conversation. You—and I—will be the safer for it.
