Take the Pledge!

September 18, 2013
The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute has found that “text messaging creates a crash risk 23 times worse than driving while not distracted.” It breaks my heart to know that people are so willing to put themselves into danger and not even think twice about it. That’s why I’m happy to share some HUGE news! McCarthy Auto is teaming up with PrepsKC to Take The Pledge To Not Text & Drive. Too many people are texting and driving these days, and it’s not okay. Our goal is a simple one: Starting October 1 through October 31st, fans have the opportunity to log onto and take the pledge to not text and drive. That pledge is a promise to never be on your phone while behind the wheel, as well as a promise to encourage all within your social reach to do the same. In addition to this pledge, you’ll also have the opportunity to vote for your favorite Kansas City-area high school’s football program. At 5:00 p.m. on October 31, the school with the most pledges will win $5,000 for its football program, courtesy of the McCarthy Auto Group. More than anything, though, we want you all to be safe on the road. If even one accident from texting and driving is avoided, we’ll consider our campaign a success. The contest starts Oct. 1 and you’re able to vote up to three times per day per IP address! All you’re going to have to do is go to (look for the ad at the top right part of the page!) and vote, vote, vote! Take a gander at what you’ll start seeing October 1st below! 🙂 pledge
