Statistics show that texting while driving causes 1,600,000 accidents per year. 11 teen deaths occur every day due to texting and driving. PHOENIX invites you to stop by their booth at the Chamber Expo at Sacred Heart Activity Center on Saturday, February 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to get your red thumb band and join the movement of saying no to texting and driving.
