America’s New Deadly Obsession: Texting While Driving

My consistent readers know I have been on a crusade to eliminate Texting
While Driving (TWD) here in Georgia. I will be offering my assistance to Georgia Legislators interested in passing that bill this session. Seems lots of folks are getting on the TWD bandwagon now, including Oprah. This is wonderful news because Oprah seems to have the Midas Touch…she makes things happen. Please watch Monday’s Oprah at 4:00 p.m. on WSBTV (Channel 2) entitled “This Show Could Save Your Life: America’s New Deadly Obsession.” As I was traveling down I-85 South coming home from my daughter’s basketball game this morning, I saw a woman in a red Chrysler Sebring hard-top convertible going about 75 m.p.h., texting with her arms outstretched stuck through her steering wheel. Scary!! I hope she will be on watching Monday.
