Why You Think You Can Safely Text and Drive
You may do it thousands of times without causing an accident. This will give you a false sense of confidence that you’re a good enough driver to be able to text without having an accident.
The problem is that one day it may be the one time that something unexpected happened when you were distracted for just a second. Do you want to be the one who sends 10,000 texts while driving without an accident but is seriously injured or kills someone else on the 10,001 text?

I wouldn’t let someone bother me in the middle of dinner or in the middle of a movie for something other than an emergency. No one is that important. Why let someone bother me while I’m driving? If they don’t want to wait until I get out of the car, they’re not worth my time.
Even, if you’re not the one who dies, do you really want to go through the rest of your life knowing you were responsible for causing someone else’s death and misery for their family? You could even spend years in prison!
