Distracted Driving Affects All of Us.

Distracted driving is a serious and growing problem in our country that affects all of us. Distracted driving, as defined by dictionary.com, means “driving a vehicle while engaging in an activity that has the potential to distract the driver from the task of driving.”  It is a growing problem that is only getting worse as phone technology advances and becomes more enticing and lives get busier.  It seems like a great time to try and get some phone calls in, shoot out a few texts, and pay some bills, after all, you are stuck in your car for a whole hour, right?  Wrong!  Is paying that energy bill worth putting your life in danger?  Is texting “LOL” worth dying for?
