Get Off Your Phone!
I was driving to work this morning (saturday, july 8th, 9:30am north edmonton) and sitting at a red light in a double left turning lane. I looked to my left and noticed this young girl texting in her car and then I saw 2 people waiting at the light to cross in a marked crosswalk.
The light turns green and I obviously wait for these people to cross the street but this girl was so busy on her phone she wasn’t stopping. I honked my horn to get her attention to stop and she slammed on her brakes.
She’s lucky I did that or these 2 pedestrians would’ve been hit. Both me and the pedestrians started yelling at this girl and I told her “get the f@$k off your phone , you almost seriously injured 2 people” she looked scared and obviously embarrassed.
Glad I was there at that time and I hope she learned her lesson. Let this be a reminder to all to please stop texting and driving!
