MINNEAPOLIS - There's a bipartisan push to crack down on distracted driving.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar and South Dakota Sen. John Hoeven spoke at the Shreya Dixit Memorial Walk in Eden Prairie on Saturday.
Dixit died in 2007 when a driver allegedly turned to grab something to from the back seat and crashed into her.
Klobuchar said it only takes a second to lose focus on the road.
"The stats show when someone looks down for just four seconds you literally drive a football field," Klobuchar said. "It's like being blindfolded and driving down the highway."
The Senators created a bill that would give more states access to money for distracted driving enforcement and education.
Minnesota already does have rules to prevent distracted drivers.
