Oprah Winfrey’s “No Phone Zone” Campaign – Take the Pledge!!

After I dropped my kids off at school I headed to the bakery to buy some muffins for a school meeting. At the red light, I checked my phone and saw a text message from a friend who wanted to take a walk this morning. I thought it was a great idea to take a walk, so I promptly replied by texting that I can take a walk as soon as I go home to write my post in honor of the “No Phone Zone” campaign to help bring understanding to distracted driving.

WHAT WAS I THINKING?  Writing a text in my car – at a red light – to tell someone that I am writing a post about no distracted driving?

Even though I was texting at a red light – it was still texting in a car and it was distracting me from driving. This helped me realize how easy it was to get distracted while driving and that I NEED TO BE THE FIRST PERSON TO GET ON BOARD AND TAKE THE PLEDGE. From now on, my cellphone will be placed out of reach while I am driving. First thing I did when I got home was to sign the pledge.

    danger.  Distracted driving is
    unsafe, irresponsible and in a split second, its consequences can be
    devastating. ~ U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood
