U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood released the latest video in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s “Faces of Distracted Driving” series, featuring the story of Kassy Kerfoot, from Meridian, Idaho.
“Faces of Distracted Driving” is a video series that raises awareness about the potentially tragic consequences of texting and cell phone use while driving by sharing the stories of family members who have lost loved ones in distracted driving crashes. In 2009, nearly 5,500 people died and half a million were injured in accidents involving a distracted driver. The series is part of Secretary LaHood’s effort to raise greater awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.
