TextLess Live More is a peer-to-peer national awareness campaign with a mission to:
- End distracted driving permanently
- Prevent tragic accidents and deaths caused by distracted driving
- Educate and raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving, such as texting, streaming, posting and using social media behind-the-wheel
Through peer-to-peer dialogue, education and behavior modification around the dangers of distracted driving, TextLess Live More's goal is to save lives and prevent accidents so we can make driving safe for everyone.
TextLess Live More was founded by friends of Merritt Levitan, an 18-year-old girl who lost her life on July 3, 2013 to a young person who was texting behind-the-wheel. Merritt died because of 4 seconds of texting. She is the inspiration behind our mission.
