My husband and I were at a stop light on July 12 when a young man hit us going at about 60. He was texting. I was knocked out from the force of the impact.
My husband thought I was dead because he could not find a pulse. The force of the impacted had pinched a nerve in my neck and I finally woke up in the hospital.
My husband had a back injury and I had severe neck and back damage. We were two of the lucky ones, it could have been a lot worse. It has taken this long for me to just get back to work and I still have to go to Physio and the gym to strengthen up my body.
No one realizes how one second can change someone’s lives.
Every time I go out in my car I am nervous and everywhere you look there are people texting or talking on their phones. $360.00 is not enough to make people stop this. We have to have tougher laws.
They have no idea what a dangerous little box they have in their hand, they might has well have a gun.
In Canada, I am sure there are more lives taken from car accidents than shootings.
Let us stop this and save some lives.
