I'm sure that most of you are familiar with the statistics on using a cell phone while driving, but what you might sometimes forget is that behind those statistics are real people – mothers, daughters, brothers, friends – whose lives have been changed forever because of a phone call or text message. To help us all remember this important fact, the US Department of Transportation has started an online video campaign called "Faces of Distracted Driving" that features people whose lives have been tragically affected by distracted driving.
I encourage you to watch these videos. Share them with your loved ones. And most importantly, remember them before you pick up a cell phone behind the wheel.
