5 reasons you shouldn’t use your phone whilst driving

Just quickly skipping the next song on your playlist, glancing at that message you just received from your mom or replying to that urgent work email that your boss just sent across. All of these sound like things we use our smart devices for every single day, but when we add in the element of driving and being behind the wheel, these simple acts suddenly turn deadly.

Using your phone whilst driving can cost lives, and thousands of innocent people every year, drivers, cyclists and motorists alike, fall victim to the negligible and utterly selfish actions of others – click the link if you’re looking for Jewish lawyers near me.

We’ve all been there, been tempted to check out phones to satisfy our curiosity whilst driving. Afterall, it's only for a couple of seconds…what could happen? The truth is that when we’re behind the wheel every second counts and you need to be completely focused on what’s ahead.

Here we’ve compiled 5 reasons you shouldn’t use your phone whilst driving.

You’re more likely to crash

As mentioned above, when you’re behind the wheel you need to have your wits about you and your concentration firmly on the road ahead. Sadly, looking at your phone, replying to messages and skipping the songs on your playlist even if it’s just for a moment, makes you more likely to crash your vehicle or make a catastrophic mistake behind the wheel. It’s just not worth it.

You’re risking the lives of others

Even if you’re not wholly bothered about your own safety, you should take a moment to consider the other lives you’re putting in danger. From pedestrians on the street to the people in other cars, cyclists, motorbike riders and the passengers in your own vehicle.

 

It’s illegal!

Depending on the state that you’re in, you may find yourself on the wrong side of the law if you’re caught using your phone behind the wheel. If you’re caught by the authorities then you can expect a fine, if you cause an accident then jail time is likely.

Your reaction time is slower

Studies have shown that when you’re using your phone behind the wheel, your reaction time is significantly reduced. Making a crash all the more likely.

All you have to do is pull over

If you can’t possibly go any further without checking that notification then all you need to do is pull over. You don’t need to use your phone behind the wheel!

Beauty Muse: Janet Jackson

I grew up listening to Janet Jackson’s soulful voice on the radio. Her voice is unmistakable. I always know a Janet Jackson’s track once I hear it. Apart from being a talented singer and dancer, she is also a beauty muse. It is hard to believe this stunning woman is 53 years old. She could easily pass for a woman in her early 40s. I love her facial features. She is blessed with a spotless skin and amazing physique. I would love to be a fly on her wall to spy on how she takes care of her skin. Her skincare secrets would be wanted by many.

Janet Jackson is a natural. She is one of the lucky people to look amazing with or without makeup. I did a bit of digging and found some of her beauty/skincare tips from the lips of her makeup artist – Preston Meneses. Here they are –

Makeup Tips

Citing “a little contouring on the cheeks”, “a wash of bronze over the eyes” and some face-flattering winged eyeliner as the reasons behind her youthful appearance, the long-term employee of the singer stressed the transformative power of make-up.

Janet Jackson’s makeup is always looking amazing. Preston Meneses does a terrific job on her. It would be lovely to watch him do his thing on her face.

What does beauty look like to Janet Jackson

“It’s vulnerability. Beauty is power. It’s confidence. It’s happiness. It’s seeing the goodness in the soul. It’s spirituality. It’s being selfless and what you do for others before doing for yourself.”

I agree  Beauty is a lot more than the skin and what we see with our naked eyes.
I would have loved to learn more about Jackson’s beauty and skincare secrets. She is a true beauty; definitely a beauty muse and I am a huge fan.
