Ben Pohl, now an adult affected by a distracted-driving accident when a young man, described the toll such driving takes on others and, potentially, on you as a distracted driver.  We've heard and read statistics of increased accidents due to texting and phone use while driving, but the caution to us all is to be mindful of our driving habits -- eating, talking with passengers, listening to the radio.
Ben has made a commitment to do the best he can with his life after the accident, spreading the word through poignant speaking engagements using facts, figures, personal testimony and humor.  To find out more about his "Speaking Against Distracted Driving" campaign, see his website www.benpohlspeaks.com ;  or contact him -- 630-930-7298, ben@behpohlspeaks.com.
