Sadly, unless we have a major shift in public awareness, I believe each and every one of us will know someone whose life has been taken away by distracted driving. The statistics are alarming. I personally have been the victim of rear-ending by distracted drivers. Most thankfully I lived and recovered, but have seven herniated discs and went through surgery and rounds of physical therapy. I know so many people who have also suffered serious injuries in car accidents caused by distracted driving. It is up to our generation to put a stop to this through public awareness, legislation, and enforcement. Each life is precious. Text messages can wait.

I see so many people driving with their heads down. It is so dangerous.
