AAA Launches the ‘Don’t Drive Intexticated’ Campaign.
Distracted driving kills an average of 9 people and injures more than 1,000 every day in America. To focus attention on this deadly traffic safety issue, AAA has launched the “Don’t Drive Intexticated” campaign.
The theme of AAA’s multifaceted traffic safety effort “Don’t Drive Intoxicated. Don’t Drive Intexticated” was created to help people change their driving behaviors and make distracted driving as socially unacceptable as drinking and driving.
In April, National Distracted Driving Month, our club kicked off awareness events that included law enforcement, elected officials, safety partners and those whose lives have been tragically changed forever by distracted driving. Since research by the AAA National Foundation for Traffic Safety shows that drivers of all ages and backgrounds engage in this dangerous behavior, events were held in a variety of locations, from high schools and colleges to state capitols.
Join us in our pledge to not drive intexticated. Go to AAA.com/DontDriveDistracted to take the pledge. Your safety—and the safety of family and friends—is at stake.
