Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) December 01, 2016
The Coalition to End Distracted Driving has launched the End Text Wrecks “Pledge Wars” Campaign, with the goal of ending texting and driving deaths. To help further this cause, End Text Wrecks has produced a Star Wars Themed Public Service Announcement with the goal of encouraging the public to take the pledge to not text and drive by dancing “The Wookiee” and then challenging others to do the same.
Thus far, several “influencers” have taken the pledge to not text and drive, by dancing “The Wookiee,” including: Georgia Senator Michael Williams, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes, Prominent Fashion Blogger, Rachel Parcells/Pink Peonies, The National Champion BYU Cougarettes and many more. The Utah Jazz and the LA Kings have also committed to participate.
