At A1 Orange, we believe safety is #1 and that it starts with us! We encourage our employees, friends and family members to take a proactive approach to prevent accidents and potentially save lives. In March, Freddye Torres, A1’s Director of Operations, presented an informative safety meeting for all of the employees about the dangers of texting while driving. At the end of this article, you’ll find a PDF of A1’s PowerPoint of the presentation, links to the YouTube videos used, and a copy of our pledge form.
The statistics are terrifying and only getting worse due to the amount of distracted drivers on the road. Did you know..
- Texting and driving makes you 23 times more likely to crash?
- Texting while driving at 55 mph and taking your eyes off the road for 5 seconds is like driving the length of a football field completely blind.
