Ben Pohl ..."Speaking Against Distracted Driving" gave and eye opening inspirational talk to Rotary today. 

"What does it take for people to understand the dangers that await drivers each time they get behind the drivers seat? There is a real danger out there....distractions come in all forms for a driver - the cell phone, radio, navigator, pets, people in car, etc. - anything that takes a driver's attention away from the road.  We gamble with out lives each time we allow these distractions to take our attention - God forbid you injure yourself but ask yourself, could you live with yourself if you were to kill another person while driving because you had to read that LOL text? Its much more simple than you think - does the reward outweigh the risk?"  I spent half of my senior year in the hospital and two years learning to walk and speak because I did not understand this..."
