As part of this year's Distracted Driving Summit, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and the Department of Transportation unveiled a new campaign to curb distracted driving. Called The Faces of Distracted Driving, the web series tells the stories of friends and family members who lost someone to distracted driving. So far, just three episodes have been released, but more are expected in the future.
The DOT says that last year, 5,500 people were killed and over 50,000 were injured in incidents related to distracted driving. Here's hoping the Faces of Distracted Driving campaign does something to curb that figure. Click past the jump to see the videos for yourself.
