Quotes and Slogans about Texting While Driving
Despite the fact that texting while driving is extremely dangerous, many people still engage in it. A study revealed that about 77% of teenagers think that they are safe texting while driving. And while that estimate may allow adults a chance to wiggle their fingers and rant to their children about the irresponsibility, studies reveal that adults are no different. More than half of the adult respondents in a survey agreed that they used a mobile phone while driving.
Much has been done, and many steps have been taken to resolve the issue, like defensive driving courses which increase awareness, but there is still a long way to go. Taking the texting and driving pledge can be a good way to ensure responsible driving.
While these methods go a long way in creating conscientious drivers, the slogans and awareness campaigns take a lighter tone to appeal to the human nature. Some of these slogans and quotes are serious, some straightforward, some funny, but all of them hit the point home. Here are our favorites.
