“According to recent data, over 3,000 people die annually due to distracted driving. Allstate makes an effort for our roads to be safer, especially for young drivers. We understand that everyone is susceptible to distractions behind the wheel. Pledging not to text and drive is a simple act that can help ensure those we love come home safely. No text is worth risking a life,”
~ Allison McMahon, Corporate Relations Division Manager, Allstate Insurance Company
Allstate created www.AllstateTeenDriver.com as a new way for young drivers to learn the rules of the road—and safe driving practices—with interactive courses and experiences.
Allstate's 'X the TXT' program is focused on raising awareness about the dangers of texting while driving. American Idol, Jordin Sparks, launched the campaign in November 2009, urging Americans not to text and drive. www.facebook.com/thumbsuppledge/
