NoTXT Mission
Did you know that over 5,000 people die each year from distracted driving in the United States alone?

Did you also know that studies show that texting while driving impairs a driver in the same manner as being legally intoxicated?

That's why KTAB, KRBC, and BigCountryHomepage.com are teaming up with local community partners to bring you NoTXT Big Country. It's a brand new program meant to do one thing: get all drivers in the Big Country to pledge to never text while driving.

TxDot Talk Text Crash

TxDOT is deeply committed to making travel in Texas safer for all of us. The Talk. Text. Crash. campaign was launched to raise awareness of the dangers associated with distracted driving and to encourage Texans to put down their cell phones while driving.

Distracted driving is becoming increasingly common and dangerous, causing traffic crashes and fatalities. This deadly trend is mirrored in Texas, where nearly one in four crashes involves driver distraction, according to TxDOT. In 2009 alone, over 100,000 vehicles were involved in crashes where distraction in vehicle, driver inattention or cell phone use was cited. Sadly, 408 of those crashes were fatal..
