Don't text when you're on a road that has turns.
Don't text when there's other cars around you.
Don't text when you know a few hundred feet there's a stop light.
Don't text when you're going over 65mph.
Don't stare at your phone screen for more than 2 seconds while driving.
Use the voice commands that your phone has to type the text for you.

It's obvious people aren't going to listen to that whole "don't text and drive" campaign. So, you just gotta work with them, give them better instructions in how to do it and not do it~
