Papa, Papa, please don’t change the music. The car is drifting, I can smell the perfume of the woman next to us, just look at the road! Besides, I like this song. Papa, Papa, please don’t reach for your drink. The car in front of us is turning somewhere, you might hit them if you don’t look! Besides, I don’t want to smell your coffee breath. Papa, Papa, please don’t text your friend. I can see the car going faster, the car in front of us growing closer, please just pay attention! Besides, I think that friend is mean. Papa, Papa, please don’t smoke a cigarette. There’s a deer running right next to us, it might swerve into the road, stop taking another drag! Besides, I hate the smell of tobacco smoke. Papa, Papa, please don’t gel your hair. The guy in front of us is sporadic, I think he might be drunk, he’s gonna hit us! Besides, I like your hair the way it is. Papa, Papa, please don’t read the news. You just ran a red light, you’re gonna get pulled over, you might crash into that tree! Besides, I wanna talk about fun stuff. Papa, Papa, please don’t cry. You’ll be with me again someday, and maybe you’ve learned your lesson. Besides, I think Heaven will be nice.
Just because it doing something dangerous in the car benefits you, doesn’t mean it benefits everyone. Don’t just think about yourself when you’re driving; think about your kids, your partner, your family, your friends and everyone else driving next to you just trying to get through their day. No matter how practiced you may think you are, distracted driving is dangerous and can be lethal.
