Texting while driving is the equivalent to driving after four beers and makes us 23 times more likely to crash.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 21, 2013
Business Review congratulates Lengal Financial’s efforts to keeping teen drivers safe on the road; today announces the insurance company’s participation at the ‘X the Text’ pledge event during Hilliard Davidson High School’s football game Friday, March 18. Students will make a pledge not to text behind the wheel to parents by filling out Allstate’s Allstate Family Texting Pledge form.
A Lengal Financial representative will be on site to educate students on safe driving habits and provide information on performance based insurance reward programs and auto insurance packages. “Texting while driving is the equivalent to driving after four beers and makes us 23 times more likely to crash,” says Frank Lengal of Lengal Financial. “By pledging not to text behind the wheel, these kids are making a choice not to do something that takes their eyes off the road on average of five seconds at a time. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of the football field they’re playing on but completely blind.”
More information on how to become involved in the ‘X the Text’ campaign can be found by becoming a fan of the Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/thumbsuppledge, or students and parents can also visit the Allstate webpage to create a Parent-Teen contract; a family partnership promising a commitment to safer driving. Information on performance based auto insurance packages like the DriveWise program can be found by visiting the Lengal Financial website.
Lengal Financial, a Columbus insurance firm and a division of Allstate Insurance, was founded in 2003 and has over 70 years combined insurance experience. Types of insurance offered are, home, auto insurance, business, life insurance, motorcycle insurance, personal boat, personal liability, landlord, renters and accident forgiveness.
