MDI Cheerleaders Give Thumbs Down to Texting and Driving

As they told me during halftime, in the time that you look down at a text, your car can go the length of 3 football fields. While we all agree that no one should drink and drive, looking at your phone, or texting while driving can be as equally dangerous.
I admit, I'm not the best when it comes to not looking at my phone while driving. This afternoon, I kept my phone in my sweatshirt pocket, thanks to the example set by the MDI Cheerleaders. If you're looking for a New Year's Resolution, agreeing not to text and drive is a great one, and one we should all choose and keep!
