Adios dumb ass.
It's a horrible tragedy. All you can say is, thank God she didn't kill anyone else too. The contents of her texts just add that last jabbing irony.
But you have to wonder just how stupid someone has to be, to text while driving in the first place. What's next? "Man killed while watching portable television while driving"???
BTW, a note to the grieving parents: I certainly feel for your grief. But Idaho already has laws against distracted driving, which your daughter ignored. What makes you think making more laws on the same thing, will make any difference to the next stupid kid with a cell phone?
It's a horrible time to lecture on this. But the fact remains, if you trust government to take care of your kids (by making laws), some of them are going to wind up dead. GOVERNMENT CAN'T DO IT.
After seeing my son talking on his cell phone while driving, I put a low-power cell phone jammer in the seat foam of his car. He's still alive. And it's only a little illegal.
Tragic Irony: Teen Dies While Texting The Dangers Of Texting And Driving
Parents make plea to outlaw texting and driving in Idaho

Taylor Sauer, a college student driving home on a lonely road, was texting with a friend via Facebook when her car crashed into a tanker truck at 80 miles per hour, killing her instantly. The tragic irony of the situation was revealed in her phone records shortly after: At the time of the accident, she had been texting about the dangers of texting and driving.
Her last message, sent moments before the crash on Jan. 14, said, "I can't discuss this now. Driving and facebooking is not safe! Haha."
According to the phone records, Sauer, 18, was posting on Facebook about every 90 seconds.
"I think she was probably (texting) to stay awake, she was probably tired," Taylor's father, Clay Sauer, told Ann Curry on The TODAY Show. "But that's not a reason to do it, and the kids think they're invincible. To them, (texting) is not distracting, they're so proficient at texting, that they don't feel it's distracted driving."
Taylor's parents have since become activists in their home state of Idaho, trying to get the government to pass laws against texting while driving.
"The social contract exists so that everyone doesn’t have to squat in the dust holding a spear to protect his woman and his meat all day every day. It does not exist so that the government can take your spear, your meat, and your woman because it knows better what to do with them." - Instapundit.com
Adios dumb ass.
Like sex education, it should be added to the school curriculum. Even less controversial, I couldn't imagine one parent who would object to making a simulation game on texting/driving a mandatory part of driver education. Think you're the "text master"? Then why are you flattened hamburger after that brief sideways wind gust pushed you into that oncoming semi-tractor in less than 1/2 second? After a completing the course, the kids sign off on a waiver, which is made very clear: it can and will be used in a court of law if one causes damage thru distracted driving. Even if the kid survives, damage they cause can be enforced -immune from bankruptcy- for a minimum of 30 years' repayment. yeah, that text on awesome party planning can wait.
Not only was she texting while driving... she was texting while driving at 80mph?
Maturity can bring wisdom but youth is when we need it the most!
Sidenote, I saw a thing on the news the other day about this "great new app" that you can use that will not accept calls or texts while driving. DOing my own research, it turns out cell phones have always had this feature, ITS CALLED THE POWER BUTTON YOU JACKASSES! Not to mention, if the phone rings while you're busy, IGNORE IT!. Jesus H Christ people are fucking stupid. I weep for humanity.

I always keep in mind a saying that prevention is better than cure. An imprudent driving can kill your life and to other too that's why discipline is really important. We have been warned that texting while driving is dangerous as well as drowsy driving too, but some are just stubborn to follow this warning. Learn to practice safe driving and love your life too.
