Don't Use Your Phone Whilst Driving

Don't Use Your Phone Whilst Driving

This is the sad, but timely reminder, of why you shouldn't use your mobile phone whilst driving.

The parents of Alexander Heit released the attached image to tell the story of how their son sadly lost his life trying to complete the above message whilst driving. Alexander drifted into oncoming traffic, tried to swerve and then went off the road, rolling his car.

He died shortly after the accident, on April 3, in the United States.

In consultation with the local police, the man's mother Sharon decided to share the image with the following statement:

"In a split second you could ruin your future, injure or kill others, and tear a hole in the heart of everyone who loves you."

As someone who was recently pulled over and charged with using my phone whilst driving, I feel like I need to share this.

I've had a few things in the What's Hot thing here on G+ but I think for the first time that this is something that I have posted that deserves to be there, to raise awareness.
