Florida Highway Patrol Introducing Anti-Texting Campaign
Our Palm Beach County traffic lawyers have learned that the FHP is teaming up with cell phone service provider Verizon to introduce an awareness campaign aimed at teen drivers. The campaign, called “Danger Thumbs” will help educate young motorists about the dangers of driving and texting. The campaign began earlier this month at a driver’s ed class in Pembroke Pines.
Verizon’s involvement in the campaign includes contests, surveys, quizzes, and fan pages on social media sites like Facebook. Verizon says it has banned employees from texting while on the job or in a company vehicle.
