Rachel Holder Helps No Texting & Driving Campaign with New PSA

Nashville Recording Artist, Rachel Holder, has added her name to a recent safety initiative called, The No Texting & Driving campaign. The campaign, which brought together Cellular One and Holder, was designed as a reminder for drivers to put down the cell phone and pay attention while driving.

The United States Department of Transportation found that since smartphones and other devices have begun sweeping the nation, more than 1.6 million accidents a year are caused by drivers who are distracted by their cell phones. The Don’t Text and Drive campaign found that individuals who drive while sending or reading text messages are 23 percent more likely to be involved in a car crash than other drivers.

Holder said she realizes the importance of working with the No Texting & Driving Campaign. "I am very excited to help Cellular One with this important reminder message, especially to those in my age group. Through campaigns such as these, Cellular One proves how much they care about people in their communities. Wireless phones have revolutionized our everyday lives, we want to encourage people to use them wisely," said Holder.

"I am proud to team up with Cellular One in support of their safe driving campaign."

Cellular One has become one of the largest wireless carriers in the country and has been committed to educating drivers on the importance of safe driving. Jonathan Foxman, president and CEO for Cellular One said education is the key and thanks Holder for signing on.

"Cellular One is committed to being a positive force in our local communities. The No Texting & Driving campaign is a way to educate people about the importance of safe driving habits, especially for new drivers. We are glad to have Rachel Holder join us to get the message out," said Foxman.

In conjunction with Cellular One, Holder will be appearing in a set of new video and audio Public Service Announcements to support the cause.
