I always love it when I come across a “new” word that accurately defines something in our culture. Can you guess what “Intexticated” refers to?

It’s the 4th of July “weekend” which this year stretches over two weekends. The current newsletter from the NJ AAA club ran this article entitled Driving While Intexticated”:

“A father is driving with his three children in the back seat. His left hand is firmly on the steering wheel while his right hand is gripping a beer bottle.

Shocking, right? But would you be as shocked if the same man was holding a phone instead?”

The article then goes on to discuss how distracted driving can have devastating consequences. Creating this new word was clever and attention getting and right on point. Using electronic devices while driving can be as fatal as driving while intoxicated.
