FDOT Launches Put It Down Campaign

webbanner-DD2015

Just last week, another texting & driving tragedy hit close to home as Miami Bike & Build rider Patrick Wanninkhof was struck and killed due to a distracted driver who was too busy on the cell phone rather than paying attention to the road.  This simple yet highly dangerous act of driving negligence has claimed too many innocent victims, and has communities across the country struggling to find solutions.

Florida Department of Transportation has recently launched its Put It Down campaign aimed at educating the public about the dangers of driving while texting.  Green Mobility is a proud partner in this campaign and will begin distributing informative data with hopes to educate the local community and inspire us all to #PutitDown! For those who are ready to 100% give up driving and texting (or those who already have), please sign this Pledge Card, and share it with your neighbors, family, and friends.
