Texting or making phone calls without hands-free devices is dangerous. It kills.  You’ve head it before. Now Oprah is ramping up the message by using her television show tomorrow to promote the first “No Phone Day” aimed at making cars a “No Phone Zone.”

Read here about the television show host teaming up with the federal government to take on distracting driving.

Meanwhile, read here about how many Californians aren’t adhering to the state ban on texting while driving.

And read a story here about how 6,000 people died from traffic accidents linked to distracted driving in 2008.

    That’s a staggering number. We are willing to go through nude-o-scopes to get on an airplane (at least some are…I am avoiding them if at all possible), but we don’t want to put down the phone and concentrate on driving. It’s all very sad.
