In honor of my mom, I am launching a movement on Mother’s Day weekend to petition the US Congress to establish a National Ban on Hand-Held Cell Phone Use While Driving. My mom was killed instantly on impact when a distracted driver ran a red light and crashed into us at full speed. This left me in critical condition, in a coma for a month and with permanent disabilities.
Why is it legal to drive while on a cell phone? My mom’s death could have been prevented, my brain injury may not have happened. How many more people have to die?
I'm not the same person I was before the accident on August 13th of 2011. Not many people get a chance to start life over. I did, and I know the reason why I'm still alive…to help make the roads safer for us all.
Distracted driving needs to stop!
Please take time to sign this petition and help end distracted driving to save lives! Please go to my website to read my story.
Happy Mother's Day, mom! I love you! You are greatly missed!
