Texting Teen Tried
An 18 year old became the first driver in Massachusetts to be convicted of motor vehicle homicide by texting.According to the Associated Press the boy has been sentenced to two years in prison and loss of his driver’s license for 15 years. (I think he should have lost his license forever.)
The family of the man killed will be husband and fatherless forever. It’s a sad situation.
A kid got into a collision.
Texting interfered with his vision.
He killed a poor man,
Something he didn’t plan,
Now he has been driven to prison
Texters Terrible Untimely Tumble
A certain young man (name withheld to avoid embarrassment) decided to text while driving.
While doing so, he drove his car over a cliff.
Gee. I hope he wasn’t trying to drop someone off.
I wonder if he texted for an ambulance.
He survived the crash and is now warning people of the dangers of texting while driving.
I understand he still has a problem. He continues to text while lecturing.
A guy drove his car off a cliff,
His brain was somewhere adrift.
He texted at the wheel,
His breaks never squealed.
He’s lucky that he’s not a stiff.
