Who wouldn’t want to receive $4,500 dollars? That is a lot of one dollar bills! Yup, that is a high number. The scary part is that in one year that is the number of accidents caused by texting and using electronic devices while driving.
Dr. King is so concerned about his patients that he felt the need to help young and older alike to understand that the safety of their friends as well as themselves are at risk when you text and drive.
