Just several years ago, the non-profit organization was created and continues to employ new methods to consistently remind drivers that texting on the road just isn’t worth the risk. Most notably, the foundation’s “The Remind You Campaign” has been created to raise and maintain awareness of the dangers of texting behind the wheel through the placement of road signs, billboards, bumper stickers, radio advertisements, public service announcements and more.
