FOX 2 and Bommarito Automotive working to stop distracted driving

ELLISVILLE, Mo. -Each day in the United States, over 8 people are killed and 1,161 injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver.

Distracted driving activities include things like using a cell phone, texting, and eating. These distractions can increase the chance of a motor vehicle crash.

The Bommarito Automotive Group has joined FOX 2 in raising awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.

The #SpiritofSTL invites you to download an app to disable your phone over 10MPH and take the pledge to stop distracted driving.
