MANCHESTER- The New Hampshire State Department of Transportation continues to push their message about the dangers of distracted driving ahead of the Hands Free law that goes into effect July 1st.
They're set to release a PSA featuring D.W. Flanders of Effingham, a man who suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2010 when his family's car was hit by a driver who was reading a text message. Flanders was just 17 years old when the crash happened.
Flanders' mother narrates the video, explaining how her son will never walk or speak again. Her message about cell phones in the car, "Turn it off, it's not that important."
Auto Fair is sponsoring the video and has bought a schedule to air the PSA on WBIN-TV. They say they hope their efforts to support the PSA will help save lives.
The PSA will begin airing on June 22nd.
