Let’s face it, texting and driving is really unsafe no matter how fine you think you might be at “multitasking”. Would you juggle knives while texting? Well, you acquire the point.
The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or NHTSA is attacking the problem the best way it possibly can. By targeting those who openly admit to texting and driving on Twitter, and there seems to be a lot of drivers who do! The NHTSA is actually tweeting directly at these drivers and putting them on the spot.
Um, agreed @Domie_D23. Please realize you're putting yourself and others in danger, and a silly text isn't worth it. #justdrive— NHTSA (@NHTSAgov) April 22, 2016
Doing anything behind the wheel other than driving is the worst, @hillaryyfae. For everyone's sake, we'd advise not doing either. #justdrive— NHTSA (@NHTSAgov) April 22, 2016
Not really a laugh out loud matter, @_BankrollAJ. Do everyone a favor (yourself included) and acquire off your phone while driving. #justdrive— NHTSA (@NHTSAgov) April 22, 2016
While this might not be the most effective methods of dealing with the problem, it sure is a start. Who knows how many lives can be saved just by reminding someone that their life is not worth a text message. By using the hashtag #justdrive the NHTSA believes it can spread the word and encourage people to stop using their phones while driving.
Texting and driving has been an issue ever since texting became such a popular method of communication (it’s even become the primary method for some people). Accidents involving drivers that were texting are among the deadliest since drivers have kept their eyes off the road for seconds at a time. Only seconds of a car traveling at high speeds can really add up and put the driver at risk of a collision.
At Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) Arena we remind you to NEVER utilize your phone while driving, it puts you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road at a serious risk of collision that is easily preventable by just putting it down. And if you’re a passenger with a driver who is driving distracted, speak up. #justdrive
