Texting While Driving
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has released a new site – Distraction.gov to address the distractions among current drivers. Mobile phones, text messaging, cell web surfing, and drowsy driving all put your crew and loved ones at risk on the roadway.

Not only phone use when driving, but speeding, improper restraint and impaired operation also contribute to driving fatalities.

Oprah has embraced the deadly obsession of distracted driving. She states that texting while driving is comparable to driving drunk.
