BEYOND THE HEADLINES
August 26, 2012
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings
This week's episode takes on the issue of distracted driving. Learn about the different type of distracted driving and the high cost one risks when driving distracted.
We delve into the matter of distracted driving to see who are the most susceptible to the temptation, and how we as a community can combat it. Our discussion will include a variety of looks on the subject as we talk to those who enforce the laws and make the laws, to someone who has had to live with the aftermath of an accident caused by distracted driving.
What all three of our guests this week share is a dedication to spreading awareness and safety in our community.
