Inspired By Oprah, Teen Makes Movie On Dangers Of Texting-While-Driving

Joseph Schiappa saw an episode of Oprah that dealt with the dangers of texting while driving. A normal teenager might have simply been inspired to put down his phone while in the car

Schiappa not only stopped texting, he started producing. In several short months Schiappa wrote, shot, directed and edited a 20-minute film, LOL -- Lost Our Lives, highlighting the dangers of texting while driving.
