    Why You Shouldn’t Snapchat While Driving

     

    PI Girls, if you are driving or are about to get your license, I urge you to please refrain from not only texting, but also Snapchatting or filming while driving. Most people would assume to not film while driving, but some people actually do it. It just takes a millisecond to not be paying attention and you could hit a center divider, a person or a car, or someone could hit you. Please wait to stop or pull over on the road—it is not worth it.

    There are several stories we have read about here on Project Inspired, and they are so sudden and tragic.

    Here is an example. Click here to watch. Be warned: There are some graphic images.

    Another news story comes from NBC News. Five people were killed because someone posted on social media while driving.

    Please, do not assume you are a good driver or that you can handle the phone and the car. Other people can sideswipe your car, and you’re driving while being distracted. I know it seems harmless, but there have been countless lives lost because people were not paying attention. Let us pray for society and for people to be more aware of these stories as well as trying to be safer drivers.

    Some people have noticed that drivers who were in car wrecks used the “speed of MPH” filter, which tells the driver how fast they are going. This is not to blame the social media app for the crashes, but it tends to be linked to some of the accidents, and/or the speed has been recorded because of the apps feature. Check out the link to CBS News that talks about the “speed filter and the growing concern for car crashes because of the distraction.”

     

    Pray for not only the generation that is bombarded with social media and distractions, but that people are more alert and present in their day-to-day lives, amen?

    PI Girls, comment below to ask for prayer requests. We are here to lift you up and to encourage you in your time of need. May God bless you.
