Consider This: Don't connect and drive

On many wish lists this year: a new phone. And a lot of you got what you wanted. That's great. Technology is amazing, it keeps us connected, informed and entertained.

However, many people don't use common sense when they get in a car.

Consider This: We are in the middle of the 11 deadliest days of the year on South Carolina roads and the danger increases when you post to Facebook, check your email or answer a text while driving.

There are so many things we can't control in our lives, but we can control whether we use our phone safely. Don't create an unnecessary risk to yourself and everyone else on the road.
