What was the last text you sent?
Many people don’t think twice about the last text message they sent. I couldn’t tell you what mine was. However, families of people that were killed in a car accident because they were distracted by texting will remember forever.
People ask me all the time what our busy times of year are. They are shocked to find out that the summer can be just as busy as the winter. Winter is an obvious time for body shops to be busy but you would think that summer would be really slow. What you have to realize is that the summer comes with many distractions. Windows down, radio up, faster speeds, etc. We don’t need any more distractions. In the winter you are a little more focused on the task at hand especially when it is slick out.
Here is an experiment I would like you to try. The next time you are riding with someone try closing your eyes for 5 seconds and try to observe how far you traveled in that time. An accident can happen in the blink of an eye.
I know your friends and family will understand you not getting back to them right away. It beats you not ever getting back to them. PDYPAD!!! (Put Down Your Phone And Drive)
