Port Charlotte Accident Lawyers: Popular TV Show Takes on Distracted Driving

by Carmen Dellutri on September 19, 2012

Fort Myers accident lawyerThe Department of Transportation is hoping to capitalize on the popularity of the television show Glee, particularly among young adults. The Emmy-winning show will be featured in a new distracted driving campaign.

The public service announcements will feature Glee star Dianna Agron and are part of the national "Stop the Texts. Stop the Wrecks." According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Agron's character, Quinn Fabray, crashes her car as the direct result of texting while driving. The PSAs emphasize that reading a text message behind the wheel can take your eyes off the road for an average of five seconds – enough time to drive the length of a football field.

"This was a story we wanted to tell because we know the influence our show can have in starting conversations and raising awareness," according to Glee executive producer and co-creator Ryan Murphy. "[We] had been looking for an opportunity to tell the story of how a few seconds of carelessness could have a devastating impact on people's lives. We've already heard from thousands of our fans how this story touched them, and we loved the idea of a PSA campaign to keep this important issue front and center."
