Text & Wreck Targets Young PA Drivers
Young drivers in Pennsylvania will soon be noticing a “Text and Wreck” button popping up on social media sites.
The logo is the winning entry in a national Distracted Driving Design Challenge sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Its creator was 14-year-old high school student Hah’mari Watson, who said the artwork was inspired after she and her family were in a car crash caused by a texting driver.

The Distracted Driving Design Challenge was held to create awareness among young motorists about the dangers of texting and cell phone use behind the wheel. The “Text & Wreck” image will be used on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.
“The Department of Transportation is committed to helping young drivers get the message that texting and driving don’t mix,” said U.S. DOT Secretary Ray LaHood in a written release.
