At Clark and Steinhorn we have long suspected that President Obama is a regular reader of our blogs. Further evidence came to light in today's Washington Post. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/10/01/AR2009100103447.html

The president has banned government employees from texting while driving government vehicles, using government provided phones or while on government business.

There are a lot of government employees so if this executive order is followed this could have a big impact.

It is estimated that more than 812,000 drivers are on the roads during daytime using cell phones. This works out to be 11% of all drivers actively driving while distracted. Harvard's center for risk analysis estimates that 6% of all crashes result from cellphone use. That is 342,000 injuries and 2,600 wrongful deaths.

So listen to us http://www.maryland-law.com/blog/reducing-car-and-truck-crashes-through-distracted-driving-reduction.cfm  and the president.
