In a recent blog I suggested to everyone that you should be outraged at the fact that Pennsylvania does not have stricter teen driver safety laws.
Now an organization has been formed to target distracted drivers. As U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood states “Every single time you take your eyes off the road or talk on the phone while you’re driving – even for just a few seconds – you put your life in danger. And you put others in danger too. This kind of behavior is irresponsible and the consequences are devastating.”
The new advocacy group will help raise awareness and support victims of distracted driving. The program designed by U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and the National Safety Council is called FocusDriven. There are two websites that will give you more information on this topic. Visit them at http://www.focusdriven.org/why_cell_free.aspx and http://www.distraction.gov/ . Check them out today and get actively involved in getting cell phone and texting bans in Pennsylvania.
