Don't Text...Just Drive

Submitted by Daryl Buchholz

I value every one of you as our K-State Research and Extension family. I've pleaded for you to pull off the road when having substantial phone conversations, and to never get into texting or reviewing emails while driving. Here now is a challenge that I encourage each of you to take in lowering your risk in driving.

The KS Insurance Commissioner is promoting awareness of not texting while driving. K-State is competing with other KBOR institutions to have the greatest number of people taking the pledge to not text and drive.

Go here to take the pledge: http://soc.att.com/2ddHWl8.  And, once you've taken the pledge, send the text WILDCAT to 50555.  I've made the pledge, and hope you will too.

Thank you!
