I believe that there is no text that is worth risking your life for. Before watching this video I viewed texting and driving as a very very bad decision. From watching this video I still believe that texting and driving is bad, but it made me think more of all the people that text and drive and they shouldn't.There should be stricter laws that when people get caught texting and driving will get more of a fine or a worse punishment that will make people not text and drive. Not just the person that is texting and driving is affected, everyone is. Anyone on the road will be affected because the person that is texting is endangering everyone around. This is important so everyone will know that texting and driving is very serious and shouldn't be messed with.

I believe that no matter what the text may be, whether it's a simple hey or an urgent message you need to give someone, it is not worth risking your life. A text can wait, and if it truly can't, pull over to the side of the road and send it. But don't put your life at risk by doing it while you're in the action of driving. I had already seen a lot of videos about texting and driving, but this was just another eye opener to make sure I remember that whatever I think I need to text can wait. I personally think that the fine for being caught texting while driving should be very high and maybe even have to spend a day and/or night in a country jail or something. Just so people can really get the message about how dangerous it is. Many people also think that texting while driving doesn't effect anyone around them, but it does. It effects every single person you know, because if you get injured or die, it will strongly effect the people you know and love. That's why a text is not worth risking your life.

I don't believe any text is worth risking your life while driving. It's not worth it under any circumstances and it certainly wasn't worth it when Heather lost her life. This video didn't really change how I feel about texting and driving since I have always believed against it. I think there should definitely be a stronger penalty for drivers caught texting and driving. If they are lucky enough to survive while doing it they should be taught an effective lesson so as to ensure they never risk it again. Texting and driving not only affects the driver, but also their friends and family. The people who love you will be forced to experience unimaginable grief and sadness if you make this costly decision and lose your life in the process.

No text is worth driving if it means your life, because if you die whatever you were texting about won't matter anymore, you'll be dead. So just wait to text because then at least you can live to find out what is in store. Life is already short, don't make it shorter, you know? This video didn't change my opinion on texting and driving because I'm not for it, but I know, just like anything else, there is nothing you can do to truly put an end to texting and driving. It's simply natural selection to me, and I would prefer if those I ride with do not use their cellphone either, so they can't put me in danger. And the same thing goes for stricter penalties because no matter what people will do it and I think jail time would be unnecessary and extreme, and most people just see tickets as nothing. So it is what it is. But again when tragedies like death come from texting and driving it leaves all their loved one and friends sad and empty and very scared for future children.

I believe that no text is worth sending while driving. Texting while driving can put your life in danger and the others around you. This video did not change how I think about texting and driving. I still believe texting while driving is not a good idea. I think there should be stricter penalties on texting and driving because it would then get the message across to people that texting and driving is not a good idea at all. The people affected by texting and driving are you, the drivers around you, any passengers that are with you, and your family and friends.
