Text while you drive? This changed my life.

Thursday, September 3, 2009

I’m a good driver. I’ve only been involved in one small finder bender in 25 years of driving and have only had one ticket. I rarely if ever drive more than five miles over the speed limit.

And yet, I admittedly text, twitter, and check my email while driving – that is I used to. My brother-in-law sent me an email with a link to the following video. I watched it and it changed the way I drive.

The fact is, our choices impact not only our own lives but the lives of those around us. As much as I love to stay connected with the outside world, I have decided to refrain from doing stupid while driving. The world can wait for me to pull over or to get to my next destination.

Let me warn you – the video posted here is very graphic. However, it is worth the view and you can count on me showing it to my wife and older daughters (especially my 16 year old)!
