I pledge to keep myself and others on the road safe by never texting and driving. I understand the distracting a phone can be for drivers and have seen the horrible accidents that can occur when people choose to pay attention to their phones rather than their vehicle. I was fortunate enough to have taken part in a drunk driving prevention program put on by the Cottonwood/Sedona Police and Fire Departments to raise awareness for underage drinking. This goes hand in hand with texting and driving in the way they both impair your ability to react to situations. I was able to see in a mock situation the damage that impaired driving can cause, I can only hope others will take it as seriously as I now do.
