Woman Dies While Texting, Driving, and Posting To Facebook

Woman Dies While Texting, Driving, and Posting To Facebook | Accidents, Recalls and Awareness | Scoop.it

A young woman was texting while driving and posting selfies seconds before she was in a fatal car accident, colliding with a truck.

Kane & Silverman P.C.'s insight:

Everywhere you look, people warn about the dangers of "texting and driving". Yet thousands and thousands of people a day get in their cars and are brave enough to keep an eye on the road...and their phones.

 

There are alternatives to taking both hands off the wheel when driving, such as Bluetooth and speakerphone. But even those you need to look at your phone to locate the 'end' button.

 

What happened to this young lady, who's life was cut short, is an unfortunate reality in this century. History will only repeat itself if we don't raise awareness, raise our voices, and make more responsible decisions. We can start with: Don't text and drive.
