WAYLAND, Mich. — Bonnie Raffaele, creator of Kelsey’s Law, spoke at Wayland Union High School, Thursday.   Bonnie’s daughter Kelsey died in a distracted driving accident in 2010.  She now calls herself a ‘Momma on a Mission’  working to prevent young drivers from using their cell phones in the car.

Governor Snyder signed ‘Kelsey’s Law’ in December prohibiting the use of cell phones for Level  1 and 2 drivers.  Now, in partnership with Monster Jam, Bonnie is visiting high schools across the state pushing for teens to ‘Hang up and Drive.’

Kelsey’s Law goes into effect March 28th
