Stay Safe Southlake

Jul 18, 2014 04:57PM ● Published by Mike

At any given moment more than 660,000 vehicles are using cell phones or distracted driving during business hours.

Did you know that 78 percent of teens and young adults say they have read an SMS message while driving? Also, 71 percent of teens and young adults say they have sent an SMS message while driving.

In an effort to build awareness and curb un-safe activities Southlake Style has teamed up with The City of Southlake and the Southlake Police Department to bring a series of public service announcements called “Un-Safe Southlake”.  The campaign, aimed at making Southlake a safer place to live, was first seen when the print ad “Distracted Driving” ran in the August issue.

The youngest and most inexperienced drivers are most at risk for distracted driving. 16 percent of all distracted driving crashes involve drivers under the age of 20. At any given moment, drivers of all experience levels-in more than 660,000 vehicles are using cell phones or distracted driving during business hours.

In Southlake, we have a lot going on, construction zones, school zones, bicycle riders, runners, walkers and families making memories. With more than 47,000 vehicles traveling on Southlake Boulevard daily, we need to keep our focus on what lies ahead because it only takes three seconds to change a life forever. 

Be on the lookout for future public service announcements for the benefit of a safer Southlake. You can view the full PDF by clicking on the link above.
