RFFIC Sponsors Teens Against Distracted Driving Campaign in Kansas City

Posted on Jan 21, 2011

Roswold Foundation for Injured Children joins forces with Roswold Law Group and Teens Against Distracted Driving, founded by Jason Epstein, and we launched a Kansas City based campaign to raise awareness of the epidemic of distracted driving.

Texting while driving amongst teenagers is the primary target. Recent studies have shown that texting while driving is as bad as if not worse than drinking and driving at a .08 level. The first local school to receive 500 bracelets was Shawnee Mission North High School. The silicone bracelets read "I PLDG 2 NT TXT N DRV."

We are currently accepting nominations for a Missouri school in the Kansas City metropolitan region to receive the next 500 bracelets. With the bracelets, students are given a pledge card to sign in which they promise not to text and drive.

Even if your school did not receive the bracelets, we would like to encourage you to take the pledge online at TADD. The TADD campaign is also sponsored by a nationwide group of personal injury attorneys who wanted to make a difference and improve the safety of our teenagers and other motorists. 

Texting while driving is a deadly epidemic, and we strive to prevent this epidemic from growing any more than it already has. Roswold Foundation for Injured Children, Roswold Law Group, and the other sponsors of TADD encourage everyone to help us spread awareness of the texting and driving problem and encourage everyone around you to do the same. Take the pledge and be a part of improving Missouri and Kansas road safety.
