Last week the US Department of Transportation website posted a few stories of groups of ordinary citizens who have taken action to draw attention to the dangers of distracted driving.

In the case of texting while driving, it’s even more dangerous, because it involves all three kinds of distraction simultaneously. At Comedy Guys Defensive Driving, we work hard to make our students aware of the dangers of cruising down the road without dedicating most of your attention to the act of driving.
