Seattle Mama Doc 101: Teen Texting when Driving June 3, 2011 3 Comments 40 SHARES Share on Facebook Tweet Follow us
This is such an important message! Thanks for spreading it.
(Would you believe that a young woman who was texting while driving crashed into my sister-in-law’s HOUSE last month? Thank goodness her youngest kids [teens] and preschooler grandkids weren’t in the yard.)

After the third person congratulated me on getting a new car, I thought I’d just clear the air. Unfortunately, that fancy car in the video is not mine—but rather someone who was helping me film 🙂 A clean space (even the glove box!!) to demonstrate where we can deposit our phones before we drive. My car? Full of crumbs, abandoned socks, and deflated sports balls…
I even needed that reminder. Sometimes I feel like a slave to my phone…it even dings when a new email comes in. I’m going to try and put it in the glove box tomorrow and see how that goes.
Thanks for the reminder!
