PI readers, it is so important that you do not text while driving. Accidents happen so quickly–it is such a danger to be holding your phone, looking down or not paying attention when you’re behind the wheel. Some even argue that the use of earpieces is not safe. Eating in the car or playing with the radio are also distractions.

Recently, an 18-year-old boy was found guilty for killing a man after texting while driving and hitting a car head on. The man who died in the incident left behind three children.
According to ABC News,
Aaron Deveau of Haverhill was sentenced to 2 ½ years behind bars with a year to serve and the remainder suspended for the February 2011 crash that took the life of Donald Bowley Jr., 55, of Danville, N.H., and seriously injured Bowley’s girlfriend.
It was also reported that
…Deveau, who had faced a maximum of four years behind bars, also was ordered to perform 40 hours of community service and surrender his driver’s license for 15 years (ABC News).
PI readers, let us pray for the distracted drivers and for protection on our roads. Also, pray for the lives affected by this accident. Write a prayer or comment below.
