Did you know that over 5,000 people die each year from distracted driving in the United States?
Did you also know that studies show texting while driving impairs a driver in the same manner as being legally intoxicated?
That's why WTAJ Your News Leader and WeAreCentralPA are teaming up with Safe Auto Insurance and Stocker Chevrolet to bring you No TXT CentralPA. It's a brand new program meant to do one thing: get all drivers in Central Pennsylvania to pledge to never text while driving.
Help us put the brakes on texting and driving. Sign the pledge, and then follow through on your word. We're all counting on you!
PennDOT is deeply committed to making travel in Central Pennsylvania
safer for all of us. Safety Improvement Projects include center line
rumble strips to help prevent vehicles from drifting into the opposite
lane, more reflectors and larger signs with bigger lettering. PennDOT
is also working with state and local police to develop target
enforcement areas to reduce drunk driving and crashes. PennDOT also has
an extensive safety education program for teen drivers, mature drivers
and everyone in between.
