No text is worth a death. Stay alive, don't text & drive. Your life is more important than your text. Your family and friends love you. According to a study by Cohen Children's Medical Center, more than 3,000 teens die annually in accidents directly related to texting while driving. And according to NHTSA, driving while texting is six times more dangerous than drunk driving. DON'T drink and drive. DON'T text and drive.
