Hey guys, when was the last time you checked your phone while driving? Were your kids in the back seat?
It is not a big deal that I checked my phone while I was driving; nothing happened. I did not swerve or crash, and no one got hurt. Maybe that is the case this time and every other time before, but it will not be the case every time.
