Just so you won’t think we’re the only ones repeatedly making a point about distracted driving, yesterday’s edition of the New York Times featured a sizable article on the topic.
The story includes some featured information from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the Orthopaedic Trauma Association.

But instead of just reaping the financial benefits of more and more patients who need treatment, the group’s members initiated their own distracted driving campaign.
Take a look at The New York Times article. And don’t forget, the Nashville Police Department is actively ticketing drivers who break the Tennessee law against texting and driving. You don’t have to cause an auto accident to be ticketed. The Police Department aims to catch you before you do.
