Texting while driving

Let me lay it out for you.

Say you are going 60 mph.  If you drive across a football field, you will be in the other end zone in less than four seconds!  While that doesn´t seem so bad, let´s say there´s a three year old in the other end zone.  If they don´t see you coming, and you look down at your phone, all it takes is less than four seconds of screen time. That´s all it takes before you kill a kid, and you are off to jail.

Scary, isn´t it?

Here´s my long haiku poem:

Get off of your phone.

Stop reading Instagram posts.

Quit texting your friend.

It´s really that important?

You could kill a kid,

So let´s take some precautions.

Power off your phone.

You are better off that way.
