Whether talking or texting, too many San Diego drivers continue to be too distracted to be safe drivers. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Secretary, Ray LaHood, recently spoke about how people need to change their mindset when it comes to using cell phones while driving. “I am willing to bet that a majority of you have used this while driving,” LaHood said, holding up a cell phone.
At least 1.6 million traffic crashes a year in the United States involve drivers talking or texting on their cell phones. These numbers need to go down.

Yet people continue to do it and as a result, people continue to be hurt and even killed in accidents caused by distracted drivers.
