I happened to watch this movie called (Crossroads; A Story Of Forgiveness) Inspired by true events. Where teen racing kills wife and child. Also, I want to mention the story of Actor Paul Walker. These are very sad stories. So I want to say this: if you don’t value your own life, then at least value your kids lives, because they should not have to pay the price for mistakes made by adults and teens. Grownups are supposed to teach their children, the difference between right and wrong. So; if you think about it this way. Children see and adult do something they’re not supposed to do, then they will think that it’s OK for them to. I have seen many parents do that.
So basically if you want your children to learn from right and wrong, then don’t do something that you don’t want your kids to do. Because children will follow your lead and will not think twice about it until after the tragic results.
This also goes for talking on cell phones while driving to, because it only takes a split second with your eyes off the road to cause a serious accident.
These are statistics of accidents by Motor Vehicles. Check out the website http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/cats/transportation/motor_vehicle_accidents_and_fatalities.html:
