The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration describes distracted driving as a “dangerous epidemic on America’s roadways.” Combating this epidemic are a group of Howard County high school students.
Distracted driving is dangerous. And it is often fatal. The NHTSA reports that, in 2010 alone, more than 3,000 people were killed in distracted driving crashes. Texting, eating breakfast, applying lipstick – these are some of the distracting and dangerous activities that people do behind the wheel. According to this recent item in the Baltimore Sun, Howard County students from Voices for Change are trying to make a difference.
