A south Jersey teenager wants to send a message to teens and other drivers that “it can wait.”
Fifteen-year old Amanda Peacock of Williamstown has found a way to warn others about the dangers of distracted driving. And it involves an earworm.
Amanda Peacock has been Miss Gloucester County Outstanding Teen, and uses distracted driving as her platform. NJ.com reports that she and her mother Jennifer Peacock created a parody video of the song “All About that Bass” to remind people to just drive. "We've been reaching people who have been affected by losing someone from distracted driving accidents," Jennifer Peacock said.
The teenager is a supporter of the Toni Donato-Bolis and Baby RJ Foundation, and wears their tee-shirt in her video. Toni Donato Bolis was from her area.
