Focus Driven: A New Distracted Driving Nonprofit Launches
Focus Driven is interested in sharing personal stories from families and survivors of accidents caused by distracted driving. Like Mothers Against Drunk Driving, their goal is to supplement statistics with the stories of real people. We think sharing personal stories can be extremely powerful. It humanizes the issue in a way that a dozen good studies can never really accomplish.
By the way... for those of you decide to call in sick tomorrow, or are otherwise at home avoiding work: Jennifer's going to be on The Oprah Winfrey show. The show's focus will be distracted driving.
Jennifer makes what we think is a good point. We all know, in our hearts, that distracted driving is wrong. But, until it's illegal, some drivers will continue to us that fact as a justification to continue driving and using the phone. As Jennifer says, some drivers will think, "It's wrong, but it's still legal so it can't be that wrong."
We wish Jennifer and her group all the best.
