Stop the Texts Stop The Wrecks

The Ad Council, in collaboration with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has created “Stop the Texts Stop The Wrecks”, a series of public service advertisements (PSAs) aimed at young adults to discourage distracted driving and educate them about the dangers of texting and driving. Four ads, “Fountain”, “Driving Blind”, “Stairs” and “Graphic”, connect pedestrian accidents with traffic accidents, and lead viewers to StopTextsStopWrecks.org where they can find tips and tactics for how to curb texting while driving.
