Texting & Driving: High Risk Game

In the “texting world,” the acronym “NBD” means “No Big Deal.”  On a personal level, I beg to differ.  The attitude of “NBD” is what is killing and maiming sons, daughters, friends, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, brothers and sisters.

Last week, your BBB of Northern Indiana issued a news release about Better Business Bureau and the U.S. Department of Transportation teaming together to educate consumers and businesses about the dangers of distracted driving.

The discussion of a very real and deadly danger – texting and driving – has been on the minds not only of lawmakers, but the public in general.  The Indiana Senate recently passed a bill banning texting and reading text messages while driving.  Although this is a start, it’s critical that this discussion continues every day.

Dialogue about distracted driving should be very prominent in our schools, at our churches and synagogues, at the family dinner table, at social events, and with our children and grandchildren.   Promoting no texting and driving is every citizen’s responsibility.
