Texting and Driving: A Deadly Combination
Do you think texting doesn’t affect your driving? There are some shocking statistics that say otherwise.
Natasha Boggs was only 24 years old when she killed two teenage girls by accident. While texting and driving, Boggs drifted into oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, Taylor Galloway and Amber Thoma, two fourteen-year-old girls, were the fatal victims of Boggs’ neglectful driving.
Texting while you are driving is not only an extremely stupid way to distract yourself from the road, it is also a deadly risk to the lives of you and everybody around you. This kind of neglectful driving is almost as selfish as getting behind the wheel when you are intoxicated.
