Oregon Ramps Up Anti-Texting/Driving Campaign

Sep 6, 2017

Put an angry-face emoji on people attempting to send and receive text messages while driving.  Warnings are frequent, but the practice still happens. 

Some states even provide special pull-off-the-freeway "text stops" to accommodate the people getting antsy about being out of touch. 

Oregon's answer is something new, the "Drive Healthy" campaign.  It sets up a competition for people to get points for driving safely. 

Thomas Fuller at ODOT, the Oregon Department of Transportation, visits with details of the campaign.
