What kind of people usually get hurt during this innocent?

  • The main people who can get killed or badly injured from texting and driving are mostly teenagers. That is so because they are on there phones all the time and since they can drive they want to do both at once but u cant do that because you can only be focused on one thing at a time. So that is why most states have cracked down on it so they can keep there roads safer for everybody who is on them and the people who want to do it but cant.

How can we stop people from texting and driving
How can we stop people fromtexting and driving?

  • From my point of view I feel that we can stop people from texting and driving at the same time by having more police officers on the streets and highways so then they can be aware of people who are doing it and possibly save the life of that person or other people.

  • Or for example you can approach someone and say “Hi! I’m sorry but when people text and drive it gets me nervous so can you please not do that” So that way can get in a persons head by doing something like that.
