Nearly half of motorists admit to driving distracted--putting on make-up, texting, eating, messing with the radio while behind the wheel.

Reggie Shaw, the speaker for "Don't Drive Distracted," joined Megan Newquist in the studio to talk about the event which will mark the start of a campaign to crack down on distracted driving. More than 400 agencies in the effort.

Shaw will speak at the "Don't Drive Distracted" Summit on Friday about his experience as the distracted driver who caused a crash that killed two people.
