Your Thumbs Can Save Lives – Don’t Drive Intexticated

The consequences of driving distracted are high, and the distressing accident-related statistics confirm the threat is real. No text is worth a life.

Because of this, safety campaigns to end texting and driving have taken off globally – and in 2015, NTTA was one of the first organizations in North Texas to join the Red Thumb movement.

This month, we’re asking you to join us in the fight against texting and driving by using #myredthumbntta when you post online photos of your thumbs with red nail polish or other visible reminders not to text and drive. You can also pick up free NTTA Red Thumb bands at any NTTA Customer Service Center.

North Texas drivers and families are counting on you – pledge to drive phone-free and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
A recent survey showed that 93% of drivers support a ban on texting while driving, but many don’t take action to stop the dangerous practice. A simple reminder could help save lives.

With your support, you’ll join NTTA’s many municipal and transportation/community partners, including:

City of Dallas Fire & Rescue Highland Village Police Department Granite Properties
Dallas County Irving Police Department 35-Express Project (I-35)
City of Coppell Plano Police Department Norma’s Café
