Smith & Solomon Commercial Driver Training, largest commercial driver training school in the East, today launched a campaign to discourage motorists from texting while driving with signage on the side and back of all its tractor trailer training trucks that says “Stop Texting…Just Drive.”
The Linden, New Jersey-based company has posted the reminders on its training fleets in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware where it has training facilities in the hopes of encouraging drivers in those states not to text while driving.
Twenty-five tractor trailer trucks used to train commercial drivers on New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware roads will carry the reminder, visible for hundreds of thousands of miles to other drivers during the course of the year. The hope is they will have a visible, active impact on drivers every day.
The owners of Smith & Solomon have long been a proactive voice on this issue and have taken part in the U.S. Department of Transportation summit on the dangers of text messaging and other distractions behind the wheel.
John Diab, president of Smith & Solomon said he believes all forms of electronic communications including cell phones, ipod/mp3 players, GPS devices, laptops and radios need to be addressed.
