As you've probably heard, K945's Practice Safe Text event with Metro PCS and Fox 33 is coming up Saturday, September 8th starting at 5pm at the Villaggio in Bossier City. We'll have all kinds of activities and Chiddy Bang will be performing live courtesy of Capitol Records. We'll also have a chance for you to score tickets to see Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen on tour courtesy of Interscope Records.

The following is from the National Safety Council and a study they conducted regarding Texting and Driving. While the language is formal, the information is scary. Having drivers take their eyes off the road up to 400% while texting in driving is bad enough, but having over a quarter (28%) veer into other lanes while texting and driving is terrifying! Imagine that on I-20 at 70 miles per hour! It happens every day! The National Safety Council is a membership organization dedicated to protecting life and promoting health. Please be safe and think twice before texting and driving. The life you save could be yours!
