Episode 069 - Jacy Good, Hang Up and DRIVE
Jacy Good is a nationally known and awarded advocate and public speaker for cell-free roads. In May of 2008 both of her parents were killed and Jacy was herself severely injured on the way home from her graduation ceremony from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA. The devastating wreck was caused by a driver distracted by a cell phone conversation. Good now travels the country sharing her story at high schools, colleges, conferences, and corporate events in an effort to prevent such horrors from touching others' lives. Ms. Good has been a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, of Maria Shriver at the 2010 Women's Conference, and of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon at his “Call to End the Global Epidemic of Distracted Driving.” Jacy’s been featured as a "Hero Among Us" in People Magazine and in a January 2015 piece on CNN’s The Human Factor among many dozens of other print and television profiles. Together with her husband, Steve Johnson, she has crisscrossed the country giving their Hang Up And Drive presentation to over 500 audiences since 2011.
