On Today's Show:

National Safety Council Senior Director of Transportation Initiatives Dave Teater, whose 12-year-old son was killed four years ago by a driver talking on a cell phone
As millions of people prepare to drive to their Labor Day destinations, the need for drivers to be cautious and attentive is at its greatest! An alarming 1.2 million people worldwide are killed every year in automotive accidents, resulting in approximately 3,000 deaths every day with 500 of them being children; and 50 million people worldwide are injured in auto crashes every year with 15 million of them being seriously injured. Thus, it is crucial that drivers take all of the proper precautions (including proper vehicle maintenance, proper maps and/or navigational devices, wearing of seat belts, driving at safe speeds and with the proper head and tail lights, driving without the influence of alcohol, driving without being drowsy, and driving without the use of cell phones or other distracting handheld devices) to ensure the safety of themselves, their family and friends, and everyone else who takes to the roads this year
