Today, “The Oprah Winfrey Show” is dedicating its broadcast to people who have lost friends or family members to car crashes that resulted from distracted driving.
The show coincides with the launch of iZUP, a cell phone application created by Illume Software, a Massachusetts-based company. The application automatically launches when it detects that the phone is in a moving vehicle and disables incoming calls or text messages.
During her show this afternoon, Oprah will discuss the dangers of distracted driving and ask drivers to commit to avoid text messaging or talking on cell phones while behind the wheel. Through our auto accident law firm, we have seen the horrific results of distracted driving, and we’re glad to see such a prominent public figure educating viewers about it.
