Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of accidents. We are used to being connected every second of every day, but one second of looking down at our phones could make the difference between life and death.
When we’re behind the wheel, our eyes should be on the road and nothing else, especially if there are other people in the car with us. It’s not fair to put their lives at risk just because we got a text message or a notification on Facebook.
Not to mention the other people on the road whose lives you are putting at risk. Those people are someone’s daughter or son, someone’s wife or husband, someone’s dad or mom. One single careless gesture could mean ending someone’s life and destroying that of their family members.
It only takes a split second for a tragedy to occur, so the people trying to reach you via phone can wait until you can pull over and check your phone safely. Whatever it is, it can wait.
This is also the message AT&T wanted to convey in the clip below. Everybody needs to see this, so make sure you take a second to share this with others!
This is important.
