The Governors Highway Safety Association and Oprah Winfrey have declared Friday "No Phone Zone Day" as they continue their campaign against distracted driving.
A live episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" will be devoted to the issue and rallies will be held in Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
Here’s GHSA Chairman Vernon Betkey:
"GHSA has always supported a multifaceted approach to combating distracted driving. While state legislation and enforcement are both critical factors, education efforts are also important — and what better person to raise public awareness than Oprah Winfrey? As a society, we need to make cell phone use while driving as unacceptable as drunk driving."
