As the driver of a two-ton hunk of steel you are in control of what could be an extremely deadly weapon.
It is ultimately your responsibility, and yours alone to ensure you do not harm another person or property while operating any vehicle.
Do not make the mistake of attributing luck with skill. If you text and drive it is only a matter of time before you become the next statistic. That incident could make you responsible for the death of an innocent child or parent, and WILL ruin your life as well.
PARTNER WITH US
