I want to join the board because I want to help inform teens about the dangers of distracted driving and how someones life can change in an instance. The main reason I want to join is because when my brother was a senior in high school, he was on his way home when his girlfriend texted him, and when he looked at his phone he didn’t notice a large puddle in the road. He ended up hitting the puddle, hydroplaning, and literally wrapping his truck around a tree. The doctors said it was a miracle that he survived. when my mother found out he could have died her heart sank into her chest with fear and relief that he is still alive. No family should have to to go through losing their child because of something that could have been 100 percent preventable if they just would have known the risks of distracted driving and the proper ways to handle the types of situation where another car is being driven by a distracted drive.
