Los Angeles is a city of dreamers. People travel here from all walks of life to pursue their dreams, and ultimately settle down. With thousands of people escaping to LA every year to enjoy the sunny weather and run into their favorite celebs, our city has become – to put it lightly – crowded. As a result, we spend much of our beautiful day sitting in traffic.

When you hop in your car to go to work or run an errand you don’t anticipate a car accident, or even fear it as you are driving.

For many of us, this multitasking has become second nature, so we think it’s harmless to read or send a text message while driving.
