Texting while driving is a dangerous mix and Governor Steve Beshear this week joined public safety and business leaders to announce a campaign to encourage Kentuckians to pledge to abstain from the behavior.
The initiative is a partnership among the Governor’s Office, Kentucky State Police, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Kentuckians for better transportation and AT&T.
As part of the campaign, window cling decals showcasing the message, no text on board will be placed on all state vehicles.
Motorists across the Commonwealth will also see don’t text and drive messages on electric boards along state highways.
Governor Beshear also signed a proclamation stating that October 10th is “don’t text and drive day” in Kentucky.
