Harris County PSA promotes safe driving

The next time you're at a local movie theater, you may run into the Harris County sheriff delivering a life-saving message.

A public service announcement will play at movie theaters across our area. The goal is to prevent drunk and distracted driving.

The campaign is starting just one day after the National Transportation Safety Board called on all states to outlaw using cell phones - even with hands-free devices - while driving.

Earlier this year, state lawmakers passed a statewide ban on texting and driving, but the governor vetoed it, saying the government shouldn't micro manage what adults do.
