I believe that sending a quick text is not worth putting your life on the line. It did change my opinion. It opened my eyes and I saw how serious it was. Yes, I do believe there should be a bigger fine. The people around you are affected if you hit them. Most defiantly your family is affected because they just lost someone that they love dearly. A text can wait in order to save your life.

I don't think any text is worth answering when it could risk someones life. Watching this video makes me think that there should be stricter penalties for people who text and drive because they don't think anything bad will happen so they won't stop texting. Everyone is affected when you text and drive because you could hit anyone and anyone you hit either has a mom, dad, kids, sibling, etc and they would all be affected if something happened to just that one person .

No text message is worth any type of car crash, whether it be a fender bender or a crash resulting in death. I have always been extremely against texting and driving, this video just added to that feeling. If I am in a car with someone who reaches for their phone I snatch it from them. A text is not worth any consequence that can be so easily avoided. There definitely should be stricter penalties for texting and driving. So many people do it because they do not get caught, they think "it won't happen to them". Texting and driving not only affects everyone in the car, but all of your loved ones that are left to deal with the pain the driver has caused.

I strongly think that texting while driving is not worth anything, even if that text is urgent. Under no circumstance should you pick up your phone while driving. I already felt that texting while driving was not smart and this video about Heather reinforced that opinion. I feel very sad for Heather's family because these deaths are so preventable. I think that there should be stricter penalties because people still feel the need to do it. By texting and driving, you not only put yourself at risk but, other drivers and your passengers too. A text is not worth a life.

Honestly, I strongly believe that no text is more important then the safety of me and other drivers on the road. all text and calls can wait until I make it safely to my destination.Although, I knew texting and driving is the most stupid thing you can do, but after this video I really realized I should never and promise myself to never text and drive ever. As far as far as that goes I feel we should have stronger punishment because, when your texting and driving your affecting everyone around you and putting everyone in harms way,everyone else around you is driving safely and you feel the need to text and drive, thats putting everyone in danger and they should be punished because you might have gotten lucky one time but, what happens with the next few times? and the time you crash that ends up hurting or killing someone who was loved by their family and what about your family when they find out your dead? it's a messy issue and driving is already a pretty risky thing so, my advice is put your phone on silent.
