ABC13, Take 5 Oil Change Encourage People to 'Share Five' to Save Lives on Roadways
At any given moment, 660,000 drivers across the United States are using electronic devices, creating dangerous situations on the country's roadways.
Distracted driving is any activity that takes a driver's attention away from the primary task at hand.
While the activities include using smartphones to talk, eating, adjusting a radio, and talking to passengers, the federal government's official Web site for distracted driving describes texting as the "most alarming distraction" because it requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver.
It's that type of "intexticated" driving that ABC13 and Take 5 Oil Change hope to end.
The way to join the campaign is simple.
Click here to enter online, and pledge that you no longer will be a distracted driver. "Tag" five people whom you know, encouraging those people to write a similar post on their Facebook pages, "tagging" five people whom they know, who, in turn, will "tag" another five people, and so on.
In addition to knowing you're helping make the roadways safer, Take 5 will give you a coupon for 15% off an oil change. To take advantage of the offer, just use the coupon code "Share Five."
