New Texting & Driving PSA Might Make You Think Twice

The Feds released a disturbing new 30-second video that they’re hoping will ‘inspire drivers to keep their phones in their pockets while behind the wheel’.

The clip features a group of young people driving, checking their cell phones and talking. The driver’s phone beeps, she looks down to check it as she drives through a stop sign. A truck plows into their car, rolling it end over end down a deserted street.

A police officer steps in and says: “Nobody likes to be stopped by the police. But if I’d seen her texting while driving, it just might have saved her life.”

According to distraction.gov, about 421,000 people were injured in automobile crashes that involved a distracted driver in 2012.

A study from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute found that roughly 25 percent of teens respond to a text at least once every time they drive.

Another study found that the average time a driver has their eyes off the road while texting is five seconds.

Best April Fool’s Prank Yet

A college professor in Grand Rapids, MI has a rule:  If your cell phone rings in class you MUST answer it, and it HAS TO BE on speaker-phone.

One of his students got a call during class.  When she answered it was a clinic informing her that her pregnancy results turned out to be positive.  The professor turned beat red and tried to get her to stop the speaker phone session.

After she got off the phone, the professor publicly apologized.  The student responded with, “its ok I’ve been expecting this and I already know what I’m going to name the baby.  The first name will be April and the middle name will be Fools”.

The class cracked up as the professor got the joke.
