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
