A few years ago, I was watching Oprah, at the end she made a vow not to use her cell phone while she was driving…then she asked Nate Berkus do the same thing by signing a petition. Too many people are being hurt or killed by using a cell phone, whether it be to simply make a phone call or worse, texting. Now, in Pennsylvania, it is against the law to text while driving and in some areas, while not in our area yet, it is even illegal to use the phone, unless using a hands-free device, while driving.
I have found a great Web Site, FocusDriven.org, that offers information and even allows you to sign your own petition to be cell phone free (at least for the rest of this month) while driving. Please take a few minutes to go through the site, read some of the stories, get some important facts, share with your friends and if you can, sign the petition.
Please remember, no text message or phone call is worth the life of loved one, whether it be yours or someone else.
