Thanks for Being a Lifesaver!

Teen leaders went to the state Capitol to express their gratefulness to lawmakers for passing a law against texting while driving last year. Many people would think that such measures are too strict. Several researches were conducted; some professors even have given their students a task to write a “texting and driving argumentative essay” in which they could sum up both cons and pros of implementing such a law. And, we can say it now, the list of pros was longer. The teens hosted their annual “Generation tXt Day at the Capitol” by holding a press conference, having a lunch session with State Farm, promoting the new law and walking the halls to meet with legislators. These young leaders handed out Lifesavers as a token of appreciation to all the representatives, senators, law enforcement, agencies and families who demonstrated support for this lifesaving law. State Farm awarded the teen leaders with a $20,000 check to continue their awareness and education program.

Creating Awareness of New Law in Oklahoma

Generation tXt is part of a state-wide coalition to create awareness of the new law against texting and driving that takes effect Sunday, November 1, 2015.

Teen leaders plan to distribute posters to shops, restaurants, schools, churches, synagogues and businesses to help spread the word. The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation are funding the PSA’s on TV and radio.

We are consistent in our messaging to help save lives in our state: “U Drive. U Text. U Pay.”

This 30-second PSA from NHTSA is powerful. Check it out: “U Drive. U Text. U Pay.”
