What: As drivers stop to fill up for gas during this summer of record-breaking road travel, AAA is reminding them to put their phones down while driving. AAA has placed important safety reminders aimed at changing attitudes and behaviors surrounding the deadly problem of distracted driving at unlikely places: gas pumps.
AAA’s “Don’t Drive Intexticated.” initiative targets drivers who would never consider drinking a beer behind the wheel and, yet, regularly engage with mobile devices that dangerously take their eyes, hands and minds off driving.
When: Thursday, July 25th; contact Mark Madeja, (918) 935-9318 to schedule
Where: Murphy USA Gas Station, 7932 S. Lewis Ave., (81st St. & S. Lewis)
