Texting and driving will cause an accident. Texting and walking or doing anything will cause accidents.

The new thing now is more rear-end crashes. Because of texting. Every text takes your eyes off the road for five seconds. Most don’t even pause between texts; they never stop. A lot of people will die because of texting.

What are the odds? The statistics are there is a 30 percent chance someone texting will not make it home. And talking on a cellphone is 15 percent, the same as drunk driving.

Help spread he word: Don’t text and drive. To do more go to the website http://www.gofundme.com/stoptextingdriving. Stay safe. And stay off the phone while driving.
