The Bongiovi Crew Pledge to Never Text and Drive
Texting and driving is a serious issue. As CEA members, we want to show solidarity to their “It Can Wait” campaign. We are all doing our part by taking the Pledge to Never Text and Drive. You may be surprised by the accident data posted on the It Can Wait site.
100,000 plus crashes a year are caused by people who are texting and driving. These numbers are alarming. What’s even more alarming is that 75% of teens say that texting and driving is common behavior among their friends. The good thing is that states throughout the U.S. are starting to take action. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal reports that NY and other major cities are posting signs directing drivers to designated text stops. It may be time to consider these type of text stops in and around local streets as well.
Acclaimed director Werner Herzog tells personal stories in this powerful It Can Wait Documentary.
