Lindsay storrs who is live at Westminster College. Lindsay another beautiful day today
Yes, I’m here at Westminster in their newly renovated commons area it’s a really beautiful setting to have their no texting party tonight. The drive now text later campaign tonight. Come down, sign the pledge, we’ve got all sorts of free food and let me tell you it smells delicious. Everybody in the community is coming together to get everybody off their phones while they’re driving.
“Drive now, text later.” That’s the message students at Westminster College are sending. They are launching an anti-texting campaign on campus today. Lindsay Storrs joins us live from Westminster. Lindsay this sounds a lot like our "no text zone.” Right and they are in conjunction with each other.
Westminster College is working with channel 2 on this campaign to get the entire state of Utah put down their phones while driving. They’re starting here at Westminster so far they’ve had about 300 people sign their pledge. You can see the party has begun, they’ve got free food out here. You can come out, sign the pledge, get some free food, get your bracelet, and put that bracelet on your review mirror to remind you each time you get in your car.
Students at Westminster College started an anti- texting campaign it’s called "drive now, text later". The movement encourages students, faculty members, and staff to sign a pledge promising they will refrain from texting while driving. Lindsay Storrs is at Westminster right now. Lindsay this is very similar to KUTV's not text zone campaign. Right, they are linked with each other, the kids here at Westminster have decided to start this campaign and it goes in conjunction with the no texting campaign channel two is doing….Tell us why you decided to start this campaign.
It’s just a behavior that you can change and it can easily save your life and others’ lives and I see so many people driving and you think that they’re drunk but really they’re texting while driving.
