As noted earlier this year, April is Distracted Driving Awareness month. Since then, though, the number of deaths from texting while driving just in Ohio – not to mention nationwide – continues to rise.
There is a new resource available at EndDD.org. It shares the real-world story of Casey Feldman who was struck and killed by a texting driver as she crossed the street. EndDD.org also has a checklist of pledges, which can be especially helpful for teenage drivers.
What does this mean to you:
Ohio’s texting while driving ban went into effect at the beginning of September. Not only is it now against the law, its just dangerous. Put down the cell phone while driving. Nothing is that important. It can wait.
