Today, while watching today's episode of Oprah I was hugely convicted about using my phone while driving. Travis and I do not text, but we both use our driving time as an opportunity to catch up on phone calls.
I will never again talk on the phone while driving. Never.
The stories I heard broke my heart and I cannot put myself, my children, my loved ones, you and your ones at risk. I am remorseful for every time I used my phone while driving. Never again.
If you are drunk at .08 blood alcohol level or are talking on the phone you are 4x more likely to get in a car accident. (drunk driving and talking on the phone - even hands free - are the SAME risk factor!!!)
If you are texting and driving you are 8x more likely to get in an accident.
Check out Oprah's website to read the stories and learn more. One thing that really made an impression on me was the diagram of what you see when on the phone and driving. Check it out.
