There's nothing that interferes with the flow of traffic more than distracted driving and obviously could have fatal consequences as well."

Last year, nearly three-million people flew on the Friday before Memorial Day and that number is expected to be much higher this year.
The TSA is advising people to arrive at the airport at least two hours before their flight.
