I wrote in January about Oprah’s campaign against texting and driving called the “No Phone Zone.” Oprah has now released the video for this campaign. Who knows if this is will, but Oprah’s name on anything has to be effective.
You can view the video here.

Even mega-stars like Oprah Winfrey are jumping into the effort to promote safe driving. Oprah’s website dedicated a section to distracted driving and is urging drivers to avoid texting while driving.
On the website, Oprah asks motorists to commit to not text or talk on their phones while driving. On Monday, the
talk show host plans to feature those who have lost loved ones in distracted-driving accidents on an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
In a statement, Winfrey says she’s “passionate” about the issue and asks viewers to spread the message to their families, friends, co-workers and community.
Winfrey says she wants people to know “how absolutely stupid it is that we continue to text and drive.”
I don’t think there could be a bigger stamp of approval for the prevention of using cell phones while driving than from Oprah. I think I might have to watch Monday’s program…. a show I don’t think I’ve watched probably since college. I will definitely have a follow up entry regarding the show this week.
