Call or Email your LOCAL Representative

So we met last night with our State Representative Chris Stewart. He advised us to each contact our local representative that would be able to help us more on a state level. Below is a link with a list of representatives in each area of the state. PLEASE PLEASE send an email or a letter or even call your rep and ask what we can do to get a bill going to make Utah a hands free state along with the 11 other states that are already hands free.  We know with enough support, we can make this happen!!!

Our Story

On March 4th, 2013, my parents, Dave & Leslee Henson went on a morning walk on Dixie Drive in St George, UT and were hit by a car while walking on the sidewalk. The driver at fault was texting and speeding. My dad saved my mom's life by taking the full impact and shielding her from the car. My mom survived with a broken neck, broken back, separated shoulder and several other injuries including over 5000 stitches and staples in and on her head. She is a miracle and we are so blessed that she survived the accident. We know she is meant to be here on earth. We hope that together we can save lives by educating teens AND adults on the dangers of distracted driving, most specifically, texting and talking on cell phones while driving. Below are the links to a few stories from the accident
