This service announcement is brought to you courtesy of my tears and aching butt.
Texting and driving is not worth it. "Texting" also includes email, browsing the web, and as I learned today searching google for an address I needed. Apparently pulling over to the side of the road is "better than dying".
Also learned that opening mail and glancing through my playlist are all things that are counted in there with texting.
Supposedly it would be better off for me and my bountiful booty if I just left the phone in the glove compartment. I am still barely allowed to check it at stoplights, but am strongly advised against it.
