Allstate Insurance Launches No Texting while Driving Campaign

Woman using cell phoneAllstate Insurance has launched a campaign to encourage teenagers and their families to not text while operating a motor vehicle.

The anti-texting while driving campaign will be promoted during musician Jordan Sparks’ summer Battlefield tour. During the 29 stops on the American Idol winner’s road show, Allstate Insurance will be educating teens about how dangerous it is to text while behind the wheel of an automobile.

Texting is one of the most dangerous forms of distracted driving, and Allstate Insurance says it is ready to put an end to this deadly practice. The insurer’s goal is to reduce teen deaths and make the roads safer for everyone through the combination of strong graduated drivers licensing and distracted driving laws.

Eliminating texting while driving can lead to fewer accidents and auto claims. It may even lead to cheaper car insurance for young drivers, who are normally classified as high-risk. Additional types of distracted driving include using a navigation system, talking to passengers, and changing the radio station, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.ADNFCR-3298-ID-19823264-ADNFCR
