Shoppers stop to support a texting ban for all drivers in Oklahoma

Thanks to the 20+ teens who collected over 700 signatures from voters in Oklahoma supporting an all-driver texting ban.

For photos of us playing distraction games and giving out prizes on Saturday, February 2nd from noon to 6 p.m. at Tulsa’s Woodland Hills Mall, see our actvities/special events tab.

We helped adults and teens alike learn more about distracted driving dangers, especially texting while driving.  Safe-driving strategy pocket cards, warning wrist bands and posters were given away.

Thanks also to Woodland Hills for your support of safer roads in Oklahoma for all drivers and passengers.

By Cole Inhofe, member GentXt since 2011

Click to see the video Stop the Texts. Stop the Wrecks.

Generation tXt and other founding members of Drive Aware Oklahoma kick off a week- long state-wide campaign to deter distracted driving.  The message from legislators, law enforcement and AAA is clear.  Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of injury, property damage and death from crash.  Cell phone use, including texting while driving is the number one distraction of drivers of all ages.  Look for the STOP THE TEXTS, STOP THE WRECKS TV, Radio, Billboard and Print ads throughout the state this week.


Scroll down to send the message to our lawmakers,

“It’s Not OK to Text and Drive.”

 

Thanks to our Drive Aware Oklahoma speakers:

 AAA’s Danial Karns, Trooper Randolph, Anders Broussard, Officer Murray, Jeremiah Gentle, Fatima Kahbi and Cole Inhofe
