Stop Texting and Driving

I want to thank Tim Challies for posting this on his blog (www.challies.com).  It is worth taking a few minutes out of your day to consider your texting habits…they could have lasting implications.  I know that I am guilty at times and I needed this helpful reminder.

  1. I think this effort by AT&T will help drivers get the message. It has to start with the end user, the driver…deciding not to partake in distracted driving and this will help drive that message home.

    I also decided to do something about teen (and adult) distracted driving after my three year old daughter was nearly run down right in front of me by a texting driver. Instead of a shackle that locks down phones and alienates the user (especially teens) I built a tool for teens and their parents called OTTER that is a simple, GPS based, texting auto reply app for smartphones. It also silences call ringtones while driving unless you have a bluetooth enabled. I think if we can empower the individual then change will come to our highways now and not just our laws.
