Talking while driving is an difficult thing to do, especially if you live in a crowded area. I was driving and my dad had called and my thoughts exactly were, “Well at least I’m not texting.” I knew that it was one of the top causes of teen aged car wrecks, but I threw all caution away. I answered the phone and wasn’t paying attention when the stop light had just turned red. Luckily, I looked up and saw the car stopping in front of me. I didn’t have enough time to stop, so I swerved into the turning lane. There wasn’t anyone there, or else I would have had a collision. I thank God everyday because I am so lucky that I didn’t have a wreck. Now, whenever I am driving, I make sure to turn my phone on driving mode so it will not distract me from driving.
