Seat belts Saved My Life

Sara S


On September 27th , 2017 I was in a rollover accident caused by distracted driving. It wasn’t caused by texting, being on the phone, etc. It was caused by friends not being respectful on their noise levels and the driver getting flustered. I want to let everyone know that not only are phones a huge distraction while driving but also being loud while someone is driving makes it unsafe. Seat belts saved our lives that day and I encourage you all to talk to your friends before you start driving to give your expectations before the vehicle is in motion and lives are at risk… and wear your seat belt.


This is about exactly what I wrote. I almost died during my senior year because people who I thought were my friends wouldn’t listen to me. I hope this short passage can encourage teenagers to make more respectful choices.
