    I currently do not have any sponsors.. This is not something I am looking to make any profit off of but rather just trying to spread the word about just how dangerous distracted driving is. I will continue to build this website, next thing I want to do with it is start a distracted driving accident survivor story section on the site. I will have my first story of a truly inspirational woman who survived a tragic distracted driving accident up soon.
