Hand texting while driving

    Nearly 500,000 people are injured and 6,000 lives are lost each year because drivers are talking, texting and e-mailing behind the wheel.

    On January 15th, Oprah Winfrey began a campaign to end distracted driving, urging her viewers and guests to take the "No Phone Zone Pledge."

    Now, members of the University of Cincinnati Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists are raising their voices and asking UC students to "Turn UC Red," to take the pledge and end these senseless deaths.

    A call or text isn't worth taking a life. Please join us on our crusade and take the pledge online or print a copy, sign it and return it to the Journalism program's office today.
