Spring break is often a time for traveling, fun, and good times. Nobody ever thinks of the possible tragedies or dangers of traveling on the road to a fun destination. This past week my friends were partaking on a road trip to Oklahoma. It was supposed to be an all fun stress free vacation to escape from the troubles of life. They were constantly texting me and sending me snapchats of their roadtrip endeavors. To my relief, after I asked them they assured my that the driver was not participating in any of the shenanigans. A couple hours later I get a call from my friends telling me that they were on their way home because they were involved in a small accident. They came home sad with heavy hearts and empty wallets. Not only did they put their lives in danger by distracting the driver, but also had to pay a large amount of money to repair vehicles. Although I am informed, I hope that now my friends will see the hazards of driving distracted and being poor passengers.
