I was privileged to share my own terrifying story as a victim of the fatal effect of distracted driving via Mom Sends The Msg through Emily and Cooper of TheMotherhood.com, who are also the force behind this campaign. They have done a fabulous job in spreading the word and creating awareness on the deadly outcomes caused by one using their mobile phone either talking or texting while driving that even Oprah featured their initiative on her show.
I made this my life-long Mantra! (besides my love for Coffee)
As moms, we should be the ultimate role model for our kids and those around us and the effective Ambassador for safer roads for our families and communities. If you care for your family, I urge you to sign the PLEDGE today and help make the roads a safer place for all of us!
Lucky (for a lack of better term) for me, effective today, texting while driving is illegal in North Carolina (though I would have prefered if calling was included. Seriously). As for us moms, let's keep our minds on the wheel starting right now...Are you with me?
