No text is worth anybody's life. Through watching this video, my perspective wasn't changed too much. I already know how dangerous texting and driving is; there have been a few PSA's about it. I think that there should be stricter penalties for people who text and drive, because it can save lives. A small fine won't deter many people. People who text and drive son't realize that everybody is affected when they text and drive, especially the driver, family, friends, and other drivers.

I firmly believe that a text is not worth risking your life. What happened to Heather was tragic and could have been easily avoided. Now, because of her selfish decision, her parents are left to grieve and mourn the loss of their daughter. I have always felt that texting and driving is a bad thing and it has certainly been drilled into me. Watching that tragic story not only made me aware of the dangers of texting and driving, but also made me realize that one decision could not only effect you, but everyone close to you. Personally, I believe penalties are a great way to show people that the action is wrong, and hopefully will lead them to choose not only to obey the law, but also to save lives. For me, this video solidified my decision to never text and drive, and it hopefully did the same for others. One text can result in the driver, passengers, other people in cars surrounding you being directly affected, and causing your family and friends who love and care about you to mourning their loss.

I do not believe there is ever a text that is worth your life. I have never supported or encouraged texting and driving and I hate to see people on their phones while driving. So many people are effected by texting and driving. Families of people who may have been killed or injured and any passengers that may have been killed or injured. I think that people who text and drive should be heavily ticketed.

I do not think any text is worth a human life. Texts are usually not important and are just worthless conversations. It's not worth texting someone what you're doing later when you're driving. Watching the video did not change my opinion about texting and driving. I was already aware what texting and driving can lead to. I think stricter laws should be put in place, since it can put plenty of other people in danger. Although, like a lot of other laws they are not always going to obeyed. We can put as many laws into place as we want but that will not completely stop it. Texting while driving also endangers everyone on and off the road.

I believe that no text is ever worth your life.I have always known how bad texting and driving is, when I'am in the car with other to make sure they don't. I understand how much one little text can kill someone and leave everyone who knew them hurt. I think that when you get caught texting and driving you should be fined 150 dollars because people may think is texting and driving really worth money and someones life.When someone is texting and driving not only is the driver effects but the lives of others in the car and driving on the road are in danger too. But the after texting and driving crash effect hurts families and friends of the person who was killed.
