Oprah Cracks down on texting while Driving

Posted on: February 3, 2010


January 18, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — Talk show host Oprah is asking people to give up text messaging while they drive.

That subject was the focus of her show Monday, and she urged audience members, as well as the general public, to give up texting while driving.

Audience members wore campaign kickoff t-shirts that said “I took the pledge, will you? Don’t tempt fate that text can wait.”

Winfrey says texting behind the wheel is the equivalent of having four drinks and driving.

Several guests Monday had family members killed in accidents because of distracted drivers who were texting or talking on a phone.

80% percent of all rear end collisions (the most frequent vehicle accident) are caused by driver inattention, following too closely, external distraction (talking on cell phones, shaving, applying makeup, fiddling with the radio or CD player, texting, etc.) and poor judgment. I doubt if we’ll ever stop the madness so I got one of these sparebumper.com to protect my family.
