    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Car crashes are the number one killer of teens, and texting is one of the most dangerous distractions facing drivers today. A recent survey from the Allstate Foundation found that 75 percent of teens admit that they find reading and responding to texts distracting behind the wheel, but more than 40 percent still admit to texting and driving. Driver distraction also contributes to 25 percent of all police-reported crashes, according National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. On Friday, September 27, Homecoming Tailgate and Football Game:

    Students, cheerleaders and the St. George community will come together at Pine View High School’s homecoming football game to pledge to stop texting and driving. Students will create a large “X the TXT” banner using Dixie-cups on the fence by the Pine View High School football stadium. During the game, cheerleaders will perform a special X the TXT cheer. Local Allstate agents and Pine View High School cheerleaders will also host an X the TXT booth to raise awareness of teen safe driving through thumbprint pledges from students and teen safe driving collateral such as thumb bands, X the TXT cards and more.

    Since its launch, more than two million people have made the pledge and X the TXT events have taken place across the country. Upon pledging, participants receive thumb bands with the words TXTNG KLLS to wear as a daily reminder of their commitment. Pledge Cards are passed out to everyone who makes the pledge to help get a conversation started at home and encourage families to commit to safer, focused driving.

    To make the pledge not to text and drive, or for more information on the X the TXT pledge program, visit www.facebook.com/xthetxt.
