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.”

Two GentXt teen leaders are joining 62 other teens from across the country at the National Teen Safe Driving Summit in Washington D.C. from October 17th – 20th. The event is hosted by NOYS (National Organizations for Youth Safety) and has a record number of high school students attending this year. The teens will meet with researchers, victims advocates and industry leaders about what they can do to help save lives from preventable car crashes. These crashes are the number one cause of death in American teens. Emma and James will work with other GentXt leaders to help make a difference in their own community throughout the school year.
