I met with Steve Kiefer who was visiting Pennsylvania this week to raise awareness for 𝗡𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗧𝗲𝗲𝗻 𝗗𝗿𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗦𝗮𝗳𝗲𝘁𝘆 𝗪𝗲𝗲𝗸.

Steve recently retired from General Motors to focus on his mission to end distracted driving.🚫📱🚗

He established the Kiefer Foundation in 2016 after his son Mitchel was tragically killed by a distracted driver on Sept. 19, 2016.

The foundation is dedicated to ending distracted driving and all associated traffic deaths and injuries.

He is working with 
@reprosemarybrown to make Pennsylvania the 39th state to adopt distracting driving legislation. 👏🏻🚗
