Texting and driving has become a big issue, especially with teens. According to the AAA apple, 21% of teen drivers in a fatal car accident were distracted by cell phones, 94% know texting and driving is dangerous, but 35% of them admitted to doing it anyway. In my opinion, your cell phone or a text is not worth risking your life or someone else's. I know that people can talk to you and tell you how bad it is, but that does not mean you will listen. You should think about the consequences before you pick up your phone while driving. How do you think your family and friends would feel if you got in an accident because you were trying to text someone? The things you do affects others around you, so next time you decide to text and drive, ask yourself what's more important - texting or the people that love and care for you.
