April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. If you've been following the news, then you may have heard that the deadly bus crash in Texas on March 29th was caused by a texting driver. There are many victims of distracted driving (to name a few and to link to their stories: Xzavier Davis-Bilbo, Jacy Good, Pierre St. Brice).
It only takes an instant to have your life drastically changed by a distracted driver. I was paralyzed almost four years ago by someone who wasn't watching the road and struck my family's car from behind. Distracted driving is much more than a distraction to those who are affected by it.
Please don't text and drive - not just in April, but anytime.
