#RedThumb2Stop My Pledge

Well, I have decided to get my drivers licence a few days after me and my boyfriend at the time, now my husband, got involved in a car crash. On the right side of the road and the car we had a truck, in front we had a car and on the left another car. When we crashed I saw the truck's huge wheels near my head and destroying the mirror. It's hard for me to remember the accident, but I see it so clear that it's frightening. From that moment on I was afraid to get into the front passenger's seat, only back seat. I was afraid to go with the bus, with everything involving wheels. I was startled by every close encounter with a car...but one day, I said STOP! and that was the moment I started my classes for my driver's licence. It's 5 and 1/2 years from the accident and 4 years since I drive. And I am still afraid of traffic, heavy traffic. The only thing I do while driving, it's talk on the phone through Bluetooth. And I connect my phone while my engine is turned off. So I think that I'm a very cautious driver.
This is what this post is about. Driving carefully! No text-ing, no talking without Bluetooth...just paying attention to the road and the fellow participants: cars, motorcycles and bicycles.

Every time I saw my red thumb red, I knew that it's not an accent hail, it is a message that I have to send to the rest of the drivers near me: Do Not Tex and Drive! Text, Then Drive! or Drive, then Text! And I hope it will stick to them. Or else....I'll paint their thumbs as well :))


I did a water marble manicure on the rest of my nails using RED, YELLOW and GREEN, the lights of the traffic light and then, using the same red, I painted my thumb's finger.

 Check out other red thumbs!
Kisses!
And remember, don't text and drive!
