ATLANTA -- A live viewing of the Oprah Winfrey's popular talk show will be held at Georgia Tech as part of a five-city episode on distracted driving.

Winfrey is holding rallies in Atlanta, Boston, Washington, D.C., Detroit and Los Angeles on April 30 where viewers can watch a live panel discussion on the dangers of texting and talking on cell phones while driving.

Many states are outlawing the risky behavior because of an increase in wrecks caused by unfocused drivers on cell phones.

The 9 a.m. event is at the Ferst Center for the Arts on the Atlanta college campus. Admission is free.
