Nothing is more important than your life and the lives of other people on the road. Next to drinking and driving, fatal accidents are caused due to texting and driving.
Texting and driving is against the law and is considered one of the most dangerous forms of distracted driving. The chances of injuring someone on the road are extremely high. It could lead to an accident, you could kill someone on the road, and you could damage your car or hurt yourself. If caught, you may have to pay a huge price and probably end up in jail.
Reading a text message while driving is also dangerous, it takes about 5 seconds to read a message, sufficient time to cause an accident.
Keep away from picking up that mobile phone while driving. If it is urgent, pull your car to the side of the road in a safe place, stop, speak or message and then proceed on your journey. Think about your family and loved ones and act responsibly.
