One of the main things I have learned from following these organizations (especially NHTSA) is the incredible danger texting while driving (or distracted driving) represents for everyone.  I recently learned it’s the #1 cause of death for teenagers.  This is amazing to me because it’s such an easy thing to stop – drop the phone until you are done driving.

However we know everyone isn’t going to do this.  I have an idea – what about an auto text that is sent when someone is driving a car, letting the person know we are driving.  Just a thought.
