I’ve gathered more than 100 texting and driving prevention slogans to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.

People crossing the street, drivers changing lanes, vehicles suddenly stopping, and slow drivers are only a handful of hazards on roadways. Any distracting factors can cause accidents including changing the channel on the radio, looking at your kids in the backseat, or spilling coffee into your lap could result in an accident.

Distracted driving is conducting any other activity while you’re driving. It can be texting and calling, taking your hands off the road, or even taking your mind off driving. Keep your eyes focused on the road and both hands on the wheel the next time you drive a vehicle. I want everyone to arrive safely at their intended destination.
