It seems that everyone knows distracted driving is a subject that is becoming more and more talked about. Every day we read an article in the paper about a life lost because of a careless driver. I have a feeling that distracted driving is going to play out like drunk driving. It will be hard to monitor and patrol by police officers, but the best way to get and keep the numbers of accidents down is by raising awareness, as well as deciding to make healthy choices. That is why I have put together a program called Teens Against Distracted Driving (TADD) this program will have a direct impact and will hopefully save many lives.
I am proud of high-school students who are just starting to drive that are signing a pledge to not text or use their cell phone while driving. It can be very tempting at times, but the best habit to get into is to never do it at all. Colleyville Heritage High School is one of the six schools participating and here is a picture I took at their school. They are doing a great job of promoting safe driving at their school. I encourage not just the high school students, but everyone who owns any electronic device and a vehicle to not combine the two.
