Texting While Driving Tougher Than MMA Champion
Former MMA Champion Tito Ortiz learned the hard way that texting and driving a Rolls Royce should not be done at the same time. In a blog post on ESPN.com, Ortiz admitted that the reason he caved in the front of his Rolls Royce Phantom was that he was texting while driving stating:
“I learned a valuable — or maybe I should say ““expensive”” — lesson at the weekend: Don’t text and drive!
I was taking a day off from training and driving in my Rolls-Royce Phantom, my pride and joy, and I looked down at my phone for literally one second because I had a text — and I crashed my Phantom.
My first concern was my son, Jacob, who was traveling with me. He was fine, we were only doing 20 mph and I hit the brakes, but it is a shock to any parent to have their kid involved in any kind of accident. But he was totally fine so I got out to look at the damage … and I nearly cried right there.”
Tito’s texting only cost him $45,000. What if instead it had cost him the life of his son or cost the life of another? Add Tito to the ranks of those who warn against this risky behavior! Texting While Driving – It’s Not Worth It!
