The Alabama House Committee recently approved the Hands-Free Driving bill, which would make it illegal to hold or use a phone while driving. The committee will present the bill to the full House.

Michelle Lunsford, the grieving mother of Camryn Callaway, who was killed last year in a distracted driving accident, provided gripping testimony in support of the bill.

“Distracted driving is the drunk driving issue of our time, it is just as deadly and just as irresponsible as driving drunk,” Lunsford said.

Lunsford stated that her daughter’s death was completely preventable, and that the current laws make it almost impossible to enforce the texting while driving ban. She hopes that lawmakers will support the bill, as it will save lives, and prevent families from living this tragic reality.
