Our Distracted Driving Tweet-Up is Thursday

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
April 28, 2015

On April 30 Join the #justdrive Tweet-up to Stop Distracted Driving

In 2013, 3,154 people lost their lives to distracted driving crashes. No text is worth a life, yet many decide to put themselves and others at risk every day doing just that – in fact, over 660,000 people are using a cell phone or manipulating an electronic device while driving at any given moment of the day. We’ll say it again: No text is worth a life.

That’s why we need your help. This Thursday, April 30, is our distracted driving Tweet-up, where we’ll be tweeting all day with the hash tag #justdrive on the dangers of distracted driving. We want to reach the people who think that texting and driving is okay, the ones who justify it by saying they’ve never crashed before.

Use these sample social media messages to drum up support and encourage followers to join:
