Band Together

BAND TOGETHER: TO STOP TEXTING & DRIVING.

Texting and driving is more dangerous than driving drunk.

The problem? Unlike drunk driving, many of us don't think twice about texting and driving.

During the time it takes to read one text, you could travel the length of a football field.

No text is worth the damage and pain - to you or to somebody else. That's why TODAY'S TMJ4, 94.5 The Lake and Newsradio 620 WTMJ are Banding Together to remind you that texting while driving is never a good idea.

In fact, we want you to take our pledge not to text and drive.

CLICK HERE to take the pledge and help make Milwaukee a safer place.

If you sign our pledge, you'll also have a chance to win an iPad Mini. Full details and official contest rules here.

Thanks to Samster, Konkel and Safran, Braeger Chevrolet and Steinhafels for helping us get the word out about this pledge.

Textings and Driving Statistics

Distracted driving is anything that takes a driver's attention away from the road, your hands off the wheel and your mind off of driving. This includes texting. The statistics about this are shocking.
