W8T 2 TXT Campaign Promo

January 10th, 2013 at 3:31 pm by under Face of Fox

As part of our big W8T 2 TXT Campaign to educate people on the dangers of texting and driving, we shot a promo with Lieutenant Robert McDonald of the New Mexico State Police. It is airing on 2 KASA FOX right now so look out for it.

Here are some photos from the shoot:

 

Although it was a fun shoot, texting and driving is a serious issue. I was surprised to find out some of the startling statistics about the dangers of texting while driving.

Here are just a few…

According to the National Highway Safety Administration:

  • Those who send text messages while driving are 23 times more likely to be in a crash
  • The drivers steering capability decreases by 91% when texting while driving.
  • Texting while driving is ranked as the most dangerous distraction.
  • People under 20 years of age are more likely to cause an accident due to texting and driving

With that being said, please be safe and save that text message for later. I think everyone can agree that it isn’t worth a potentially serious accident.
