Most of us have heard of Oprah's No Phone Zone pledges. I signed one, not that I ever did a tex(not even sure I can spell it :) in my car but the whole idea (at my age) of staying focused on the road seemed like a really good idea! I have always been easily distracted.....ask my daughter!
And after watching the videos on her shows I just can't pick up another phone in the car. I watch drivers on the road and am just amazed, as they drive in the fast lane, phone in ear, either driving way to fast or erratically, never noticing anyone else.
So as Maxine says, I now have my hands free for any kind of gesturing needed. Drive safe!
