 TODAY'S TMJ4 and 94.5 The Lake teamed up Saturday to get others to promise not to text and drive. Shannon Sims helped by passing out the blue thumb bands that remind wearers to refrain from texting while driving. 

Braeger Chevrolet/Ford is also committed to the pledge, making communication from the car easier with hands free technology. 

"We can now speak to the car and not have to hold the phone to our ears and make a call while driving.," said Jamie Ender of Braeger. 

It was not hard to get passersby to take the pledge, by mid day the team had passed out dozens of the blue bands, reminding drivers that the text can wait.
