Smart Cause: No Text and Driving Day on Father’s Day by the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority
The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) is launching, what I believe, is a Smart Mama campaign, “No Texting and Driving Day” on Father’s Day! It is an excellent opportunity for Smart Mamas, Dadas, and teens to pledge to end this preventable deadly combination. Over 440,000 are killed or injured each year as a result of distracted driving. How scary is that?! Think of each time you pick up your phone to read or respond to a text from a friend while you’re not only driving yourself, but innocent children as well. It’s scary. Most of us have done it. It’s so hard to ignore the text beep. But, we must.
I invite you to join in with MDX on Father’s Day and pledge to not text and drive. To join the pledge and view a very powerful movie on the dangers of texting and driving, visit TextTheLastWord.com. Please share a comment here to let me know that you too are pledging to make the roads safer not just on Father’s Day but the days ahead too!
