When you text and drive it distracts you from your surroundings. Puts others in danger ( other vehicles, and pedestrians). Could take your life or someone elses, even both. You put yourself in danger as soon as you pull out your phone.
Its very dangerous because it could end up in a tragedy. Very pointless to send a text risking your life, could be your last text. Selfish by putting other innocent people in danger. Alot of people are being awareness to it because its becoming more common.
