Amy Roloff and the Amy Roloff Charity Foundation are supporting the movement regarding "Distracted Drivers" to end texting and the use of cell phones while driving.
We would be remiss if we didn't mention that this is an interesting cause for Amy to support, because the Roloffs (Jeremy) have come under some criticism in the past for this issue.
In the episode that has become best known for the "Sneezing is 1/8th of an orgasm" comment, while driving a Uhaul towing Matt's old yellow VW from California back to Roloff Farm, Jeremy was caught texting while driving (one of the pitfalls of a having reality show with in vehicle cameras...). Some viewers criticized him for it.
In what has been Jeremy's only real public question and answer session or interview -- although it was in an environment totally controlled by Matt Roloff - the issue was addressed, with Jeremy accepting blame for "screwing up". He said it was the one time during the long trip that he texted and the editors nailed him by including it.
Jeremy, why were you texting and driving in the recent episode with you driving the Uhaul?
Jeremy's Response: I screwed up. Sometimes the show needs drama. I'm not blaming it on that, but I messed up and they used it. Haha kind of ironic I was driving 36 hours and they used the 1 time I texted.
However, over about a year, Jeremy was again caught texting while driving by some keen viewers, driving home from the ski trip with Matt.
