A Little Reminder!

Jason went for his driving test and got his G2 last Friday. It is an exciting time, but it is also very scary. We have been doing a lot of talking about driving safely and being aware of things around. My mom sent and email to me and as I was reading it I was thinking that it was something I wanted to post on my blog.

Part of Jason's driving course had an entire section dedicated to driving and cell phones. I am confident that he will abide by these rules and drive safely. My concern is the drivers around him. Read this..............

Her last call was from a new cell phone...Do you see the motorcycle? It’s in there!

The Honda crotch rocket rider was traveling at approximately 85 mph. The VW driver was talking on a cell phone when she pulled out from a side street, apparently not seeing the motorcycle. The rider's reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident. The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them. The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 20 feet from where the collision took place.

All three involved (two in the car and the bike rider) were killed instantly. This graphic demonstration was placed at the Motorcycle Fair by the Police and Road Safety Department..
Pass this on to car drivers or soon to be new drivers, or new motorcycle owners AND ESPECIALLY EVERYONE YOU KNOW WHO HAS A CELL PHONE!!!!! A picture is worth a thousand words.

Save a life…Stop talking on Cell phones and Texting while trying to drive.
The life you save may be your own..... or mine...



  1. Wow! That is a powerful reminder of how life can change in an instant.

  2. Impact of this picture is huge!! Thanks for sharing it!

  3. I think the saying a picture is worth a thousand words is very true here...this speaks volumes!
