Distracted driving is becoming more and more common with the increased “addiction” to text messages, mobile apps, and smart phones in general. For some of us, our cell phone truly is our lifeline. As we become even further glued to our phones, the statistics of accidents caused by distracted driving increase significantly. Something has to be done… our lives and the lives of our loved ones could be at stake.
Take the pledge with us…
We pledge to put the phone down and drive.
