The glare of headlights, the echo of screams, and then nothing. Nothing but regret. Regret caused by a single life-altering choice. The world is made up of choices, and each one no matter how minuscule has the power to quite literally change lives. The choice to get in the driver’s seat of a car, while it may seem like normal every day one, is a choice that comes with a whole lot of responsibility. Most importantly the choice to pick up a phone while driving and use it is one that can have repercussions that you may never have imagined. The solution is simple: make the right choice, choose to focus on the road and only the road as you drive. Choose safe.


I wanted this piece to convey how this issue of distracted driving can be solved so simply by just choosing to put down your phone. We all have so much life to live, and we need to do everything we can to keep it that way.
