Atlanta, Georgia, Sept. 28, 2013---MT Innovations revealed their latest product line, 'Get Off N Drive' vehicle stickers, that hope to warn drivers not to text while driving this coming holiday season. Tricia Bailey , is ' All In', when it comes to getting involved in the safety of her community roads.
"One of the fastest growing areas of distractive driving consist of texting while driving. With over 600,000,000,000 text messages projected to be sent in the U.S. this year, the sad reality is that 25 % of those messages will be sent or read while driving on the road," exclaims MT Innovation' s CEO, Ms. Tricia Bailey.
MT Innovations partnered with Gwinnett County's 4th annual Public Safety Fall Festival at Gwinnett Braves Coolray Field today, Sept. 28, 2013 from 10:00am - 2:00pm . Obviously, Gwinnett County police and fire departments have come together, the last few years, to an increasingly growing crowd.
Incidentally, today's event was held just days before October, which is ironically, Fire & Crime Prevention Month. Community wide awareness events like these, lends themselves to be great opportunities to entertain, educate, and inform the whole family---Street By Street !
There were a sundry of activities for every age group. Picture this scenario, police vehicle and helicopter displays, pet adoptions, and a baby car seat lesson There was a softball game, along with a car and motorcycle show, and so many more exciting things , that was enjoyed by thousands. An abundant number of concerned vendors provided delicious hot foods at noon, and others displayed some items for purchase.
Although the event was free to the public, attendees were asked to bring a couple of canned goods for local area food pantry agencies. "With over a dozen inquiries, everybody had a fun day with family and friends", adds Ms. Bailey.
