Is it wrong for white lie?

by jl333 on April 20, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Let me first start by saying that I try to be an honest individual. However, in this circumstance, telling a white lie, is more like getting a point across. So here's the deal. Almost daily, I will encounter people driving and texting next to me. Usually I wave my index finger at them to show them that they are breaking the law. However, I'm tired of having these idiots putting my life at risk while they text and drive. I happen to have a 'In Loving Memory of Mom' sticker on my back window of my truck. So here's my question. Is it wrong for me to tell these people, who are texting at a stop light, that somebody killed my relative while texting and driving? I think it would make them think twice. I haven't been bold enough to do it yet. I wanted to get some sixers opinion before I do something like that. If the general consensus is that's its wrong for me to do so, then I'll let it be.
