To meet the need for proper identification measures Accuform Signs has introduced “No Texting” signs for highway, school and workplace use (among other locations). Additionally, Accuform Signs now offers a line of “No Texting” labels that are ideal for placement in company vehicles, rental cars and on the backs of company-issued mobile devices.
In January, NSC became the first national organization to call for a total ban on vehicular cell-phone use, based on scientific estimates that cell-phone use while driving contributes to:
• 6 percent of crashes, or 636,000 crashes
• 330,000 injuries, 12,000 serious injuries
• 2,600 deaths each year
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, who tracks state laws for cell-phone and text usage, reports that:
• Seven states have completely banned cell-phone use completely
• 16 states have completely banned cell-phone use for bus drivers
• 17 states have completely banned texting while driving
David Johnson, President of Accuform added, “Helping to save the lives of employees, their families and people throughout the nation is a reflection on the values of our company.”
