The deadline is rapidly approaching. Please - the time to call or write is now - without delay.
Seriously, who here wants to speak up on behalf of distracted driving? The operation of a motor vehicle is a critical task. We all have the right to be safe on the road. Driving is not the time for multi-tasking.
