No Phone Zone
I really don't have a problem with texting while I drive. But I love to talk while I drive. I get more done.
I am totally guilty of saying - "I can do both things."
Apparently, distracted driving is equivilant to driving after 4 alcoholic drinks.
I have no patience for drunk drivers. I hate that some people think they can handle a few drinks and still drive. It is so irreresponsible. But I hadn't really thought about how distracted driving is really the same thing.
Without a phone and just kids in the car, I am a distracted driver. Then you add my life, stress, mind, and then a phone. Geesh.
So I made the pledge to make my car a "No Phone Zone." And today was hard. I kept wanting to grab my phone. I have to tuck it away. And I still want to pull it out. I LOVE my phone. It is probably a little ridiculous and I know some of you can't relate. But it is bad!
I was waiting for Kenyon to get home tonight and I wanted to call him. But I couldn't. I didn't want him to answer the phone while he was driving. Torture.
