About two years ago when I bought my smartphone and opened the packaging, there was a screen guard that said "Don't Text and Drive". I was like damn there must be too many people killin each other while texting for companies to be warning against it like that.

it isn't as hard as you would think...you can see when texts are being sent and recieved on the phone

if someone is just reading and not sending anything that might be harder...also easier to forgive

right now it looks like drunk-driving is around 9k a year and text-driving around 4k...just my guesses based on the current trends and directions, I can't find 2012 numbers, just 2011

I bet in 5 years they will be about equal

That is fucking bullshit. It's called being accountable, proactive and responsible.

I've been shitfaced out of my mind with keys in my hand and my truck not far away. Never thought about driving. One time I even put the seats down and passed out in the back.

If you're going out, have a plan to get out of there safely. Walk. Get a taxi. Designated driver. Or don't drink. Before you start drinking, you're sober and perfectly capable of making the decision not to drink.

If you get drunk and drive a car that crashes and kills someone, it should be 20 years jail minimum.

Imagine the guilt you'd have if you were drunk and killed 2 innocent children. At the same time, it doesn't mean you deserve to be executed that way. I'm not going to sit here and lie. I have driven drunk on two occasions. Then my sister who works at Memorial Hermann Hospital took me to her job and showed me a kid who was brain dead from a drunk driving accident. That was four years ago. Since then, I have never touched a car after drinking and I always advice my friends to avoid it also.
