People who text and drive are a danger to themselves and others since they are 23 times more likely to have an accident than a driver who doesn’t. The law goes into effect Wednesday and imposes fines that increase with each violation. A conviction for texting and driving also puts two points on the driver’s record.
I don’t need to tell the parents of teenaged drivers about the cost of insurance when points start to accrue. But teenagers aren’t the only ones who text and drive and need to know about the new law. If you need more information on the dangers to help convince you, visit the ATT website (http://bit.ly/bIiNHj). Even if you don’t need more information, check out the website and take the pledge not to text and drive. I did.
AT&T representatives are available to deliver the No Texting While Driving message to your local schools. For more information on our school programs email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
