Texting while driving is not worth risking your life, or others. My opinion on texting and driving did not change after watching this video. I have always known the risks of texting while driving. Being given a $124 fine when being caught for texting and driving is a very low cost, considering yours and the people around you's lives are on the line. When someone texts while driving, everyone is effected. Not paying attention to the road puts yourself and the drivers around you at risk. You would affect your family and friends. You would affect the person you were texting, leaving them knowing that their text was the reason you crashed.

Even if that one text comes in whilst you're driving, it is not important enough to risk taking lives. Putting your own life or another. person's life in jeopardy is not worth a text message. I knew i should not text and drive prior to watching the video but seeing the video really made the concept hit home and it made me more aware of the possible consequences. A fine of just a hundred dollars or so is a low penalty considering what else is at risk when texting and driving. The more devastating penalties are obvious and I think that alone should be enough for people to know not to text and drive. Laws and punishments can only do so much, sometimes it still is up to the person to decide whether or not they text and drive. The right thing is for people to not text and drive because they endanger human life, not because they don't want a fine. When people text and drive and something catastrophic occurs, it affects everyone involved, and those around those who were involved, the witnesses and their families.

Texting and driving is never worth to die for. If you text and drive, that is telling people that you are selfish and don;t understand what can happen if you text and drive. this definitely changed my outlook on text driving, because it showed how hurt the ones that loved Heather when she died.I think the penalty for texting and driving is to take away the driver's license for a period of time. Everyone on the road is effected, even the own driver that is texting and driving.

Risking your life for a text is certainly not worth it. Even if you've never been in an accident or close call, you're still very susceptible on the road. Watching this video helped strengthen what I feel about texting and driving and how it's a terrible idea. I think fines are an appropriate consequence for people who text and drive. When one texts while driving, many are affected including others on the road, the driver, and the friends and family of everyone on the road. Texting and driving can be a very deadly activity and it is a terrible idea to ever respond to that message.

Texting and driving is a serious crime and has major consequences. I have always been against even having your phone in sight when driving. No text is worth death. Texting and driving does not only effect you but it effects drivers around you, their families, and your own. I think the fine for texting and driving should be higher because you are not only endangering yourself in the situation.
