    People that text and drive are selfish and don’t care about other peoples safety, especially teens that text about who is getting some or who is giving some or who’s boyfriend cheated with who is more important than hitting and hurting or killing someone, and just ask everyone who texts and drives they will all tell you that they are such good drivers that they can safely do it…. Talk about arrogance.
