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.

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  and the president.
