You Made the Difference!

You Made the Difference!

We’ve been recognized for excellence in social responsibility, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

The International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association presented NTTA with the Excellence in Social Responsibility Award for our Red Thumb program to end distracted driving. More than 100,000 of you helped us spread the word about the dangers of texting and driving and pledged to park your phones while your cars are in gear.

NTTA joined the nationwide Red Thumb campaign in 2015 to combat the growing epidemic of distracted driving. The Red Thumb movement encourages drivers to make some part of their thumbs red to remind them to keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road at all times.

If you haven’t already joined the Red Thumb campaign, it’s not too late. You can show your support by wearing a specially made NTTA “W8 2 TXT” thumb band (available for free at all NTTA Customer Service Centers), or paint your thumb nail red to make you think “STOP!” as you reach for your phone while driving.
