This powerful video from a father who lost his 16-year-old son to distracted driving is, in my opinion, a ‘must-see’ for just about everyone.
“My first thought was to go in there and get him out…. From the time he’s been in this world, I’ve always taken care of him. If he’d fall down and scrape his knee or skin an elbow, I’d grab him up and tell him he’s gonna be okay. But this time I couldn’t do that.”
Teens, please take note & don’t take the risks. Parents, talk to your teens about how important it is they make it home to you safely every day.
I know that most if not all of you know I’m a big road safety advocate and I understand that some may not always get it or understand why I care so much. This father’s 15-minute story of their family’s loss just 70 days ago is exactly why I’m so passionate about the issue of distracted driving. I strongly urge all of you to watch this and share it with your families, friends & co-workers. With all the research I do on this topic, it’s been a while since I’ve been so deeply affected by one person’s story.
