As the winter conditions worsen here in St. Louis, I wanted to take a minute to remind everyone that texting is one of the most dangerous things a person can do while driving. Since the invention of the smartphone, in fact, it’s become one of the leading causes of car accidents. This year will see many states like Tennessee cracking down on texting and driving. And it may not be that long before St. Louis bans it altogether, even for drivers over the age of 21. This is the only way to lower instances of distracted driving and ensure that everyone keeps the right to be safe on the roads. You can see just how deadly the practice of texting and driving is with this video created by the #ItCanWaitCampaign.
