Good Morning: Texting and Driving, Part 3

The day will start out a bit cloudy, but we'll see sunshine as the day progresses. And it will be warmish for December -- in the mid-40's. Not bad at all.

Pilots are taught: Aviate, Navigate, Communicate. Flying and focusing on where the airplane is -- that's most important thing to do. Navigation comes second, and communication a distant third. Fly the airplane and you and your passengers will be safe. Get distracted by looking at your GPS or charts, or communicating with air traffic control and you run the risk of losing control of the airplane. The same safety principle applies to driving: Focus on driving ahead of everything else. Communicating --using your cell phone-- will always make driving more dangerous.
