Speaker to discuss danger of distracted driving

MAYFIELD – Jacy Good of the group FocusDriven:?Advocates for Cell-Free Driving will speak at Mayfield High School at 1:30 p.m. Monday about the dangers of talking on a cell phone while driving.

Aside from serving as a member on the FocusDriven board, Good also had her own experience in May 2008, on the day of her college graduation, when a driver distracted by his cellphone caused a multiple-car crash that killed her parents and almost fatally injured her as well, according to a news release.

Good will discuss the issue and hopes to change people’s behavior behind the wheel.

FocusDriven: Advocates for Cell-Free Driving is a non-profit organization that supports cell phone distracted-driving victims and their families.
