"When we decided that texting and driving was an issue that we wanted to create awareness for three years ago, I'm not sure we really knew the extent to which we were going to be able to impact people," said Klauzer. "We've met people from all over the country that have complimented us on what we are doing, and countless people that said it changed the way they viewed tex- ting and driving and the impact it can have in our lives. We are so excited to bring in Jacy to continue bringing impactful testimony to this cause and hopefully to make people think about the decisions they make when they are behind the wheel."
