In all of the 50 states in America, there is some form of a ban involving texting and driving. According to Distraction.gov, “five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. When traveling at 55 mph, that's enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded.”
Omega Phi Chi Multicultural Sorority, Incorporated is taking a stand against distracted driving and is holding the event iFocus. The sisters will be asking students to sign the petition that states the signee will put his or her phone away while operating a vehicle. Stop by Omega Phi Chi’s table in the Miron Student Center (MSC) on Wednesday, November 11, 2015, from 3:30 to 4:40 p.m. and take the pledge.
Yes, a majority of students lead busy lives and are in high demand 24-7, which constitutes their cellphones to be their lifelines of a sort. But remember, all lifelines have end dates. Don’t let texting while driving be the cause of a person’s lifeline to end.
