Anti-texting program to hand out thumb bandsPublished 1:04pm Friday, October 4, 2013
Organizers are hoping a new effort to promote the “W82txt” program will get two thumbs up.
Rylander Insurance Company has partnered with the program, pronounced “Wait to Text,” to give away thumb bands to Ashby students during homecoming this week at a presentation about the importance of not texting while driving. The bands are meant to be worn on students’ “texting” thumbs.
The program was created by Auto-Owners Insurance, one of the insurance carriers that Rylander represents.
