Fort Wayne, Ind. – Monday, March 28, 2011 — Parkview Hospital Trauma Centers and Indiana State Police officials today visited Bishop Dwenger High School to present an educational program on the dangers of texting while driving. Today’s outreach is part of Parkview’s Don’t Text & Drive campaign.
Parkview launched the Don’t Text & Drive initiative in February 2009. The program targets teenage drivers and adults who send or read text messages while driving. Parkview’s Don’t Text & Drive message appears on billboards, signage at Glenbrook Square Mall and public service announcements on television and radio. The campaign also includes outreach to area high schools.
