Don’t text and drive or your car might end up looking like this!
Thankfully there was no one hurt other than this blue convertible mustang this teenager was driving. They had it out on the road with this sign in it for a few days to give a little advice and warning to all the other drivers passing by. No matter if you’re driving on the flat Florida roads or the curving scenic western NC mountain roads -
Don’t Text and Drive!

I don't even dial and drive.  It's crazy.  I do talk hands free, and I do have voice dialer for contacts already in my phone.  Otherwise I pull over.

Lee and Carol, so many accidents because of people texting while driving....a hard lesson to learn. Glad no one was hurt.

Nice reminder to us all! Smart to use the car as a lesson that hopefully hit home with some folks.

That was a good thing for the teenager to do.  I see so many people driving and dialing or texting.  It is scary.

I have done it once and that was enough, I am too old to think I am iindestructible anymore. People need to really know how bad this even stopped at red lights.

Lee & Carol, Great reminder!  It is a shame that too many people don't get the 2nd chance to learn not to do this!
