Texting and Driving

This message is to appeal to all Realtors and everyone affiliated with the Real Estate Industry. In this business, we are constantly on our phones. Replying back to emails, answering phone calls, texting back clients, it is apart of our lifestyle. But using the phone while you are driving is illegal and has been proven to increase your chances of an accident drastically. State wide police have issued 425,041 tickets last year for talking on hand-held phones.

Texting and driving is extremely dangerous, in 2011 3,331 people were killed and 400,000 injured. Texting takes your eyes off the road, which creates your vehicle to veer into other lanes. Some studies have shown that a driver texting can travel the length of a football field at 55 mph without even looking up once. Lets think of our families, children, grandparents, grandchildren, and friends. Life is so precious lets not take their lives and also protect our loved ones. “We can do it” If you want to text pull over and save lives. Lets all take the pledge to not text & drive. The text can wait.
