The New York Times featured a video compilation of distracted teen drivers recently. It’s terrifying. Unfortunately, teenagers are not the only ones who drive dangerously; many adults are also guilty of trying to text or send an email while driving.
As someone who is often running or biking on the shoulders of streets like these, I was especially nervous after watching this video. Luckily, there were no pedestrians or cyclists sharing the road with these drivers. If there had been, they could have very well lost their lives. It only takes a second and a small swerve or overcorrection to seriously injure someone or yourself.
