How can I get someone to stop texting and driving?

 

 

Dear Traffic Hazard,

Studies show that driving while texting is as dangerous as driving while drunk. Ask your big sister to speak up. Or, tell her yourself that you read on girlslife.com that 330,000 kids get injured in cars every year, and she should put the cell phone away, for your sake and hers. Yes, it’s awkward, but no one has the right to put your life at risk jut to multitask. One more thing? It’s becoming increasingly common for states across the U.S. to put laws in place making it illegal to text or hold and use a cell phone while driving. Ask her to stow it in her clutch before she gets a ticket (and makes you late for your movie!).

 

If it’s easier, make an excuse as to why you cannot accept rides with her, and ask your parents about other modes of transportation. (And someday when you have your driver’s license, don’t just buckle up—put away all distraction.)
