Moms Against Texting: Focus Driven
For some reason, in this country laws and risk of serious injury and death are not enough to get people to stop doing dangerous things especially while driving. A national campaign has been launched called Focus Driven. It was started by mom's who have lost children and even parents thanks to drivers who were distracted at the wheel by either talking on their cell phones or worse, texting. According to the national safety commission, 28% of auto accidents are now due to cell phone use. Clearly, the laws and penalties need to be much greater in order for people to just drive while driving.
